It’s been done in the past, but it looks like manufacturers are planning on keeping up the trend of making major phone announcements before a huge trade show. LG has done that already this week, and now they’ve got another high-end device to showcase long before they make any announcements during Mobile World Congress. This time around it’s the Optimus 4X HD, which we’ve heard about quite a few times in the past, and just recently heard about its rumored name change yesterday.
The rumored specifications for the device have been confirmed by LG, which makes the Optimus 4X HD one of the most impressive devices coming this year, at least so far. As far as specifications go, we’re looking at a device with a 4.7-inch “true HD” IPS display, and a 1.5GHz quad-core (or 4-PLUS-1, if you want to listen to NVIDIA’s new jargon) Tegra 3 processor. It will also include 1GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage, and an 8MP rear-facing camera, coupled with a 1.3MP front-facing shooter.
Questions regarding Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich can now be put to rest as well, as LG has thankfully chosen to put the latest version of Android on the new device.
