LG first unveiled the Optimus 4X back in February at Mobile World Congress, but since then the company has remained rather quiet on the impending release. Today, LG has announced that it plans to bring the Optimus 4X to eleven different countries in the European market including the UK, Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands and Italy. No exact release dates were given, though we can expect to see the device hit store shelves in the coming months.
The Optimus 4X runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and features a 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM and a gorgeous 4.7-inch 720p True HD IPS display. You’ll find an 8-megapixel camera on the back capable of full 1080p video recording. LG has also managed to stuff a monstrous 2,150 mAh battery inside its sleek 8.9mm profile. The 4X could prove to be a worthy competitor to devices like Samsung’s Galaxy S III and the HTC One X. However, if the company can’t get it to the market in a timely fashion, they will have to spend most of their time playing catch up.
