LG Optimus 4X HD sports four cores within
LG hails yet another first with their latest smartphone announcement – the LG Optimus 4X HD that will be the company’s maiden attempt at a quad-core smartphone. Merging the latest NVIDIA 1.5GHz Tegra 3 chipset inside with a True HD IPS display on the outside, you can be quite sure that the LG Optimus 4X HD will be able to roll out PC-like performance right from the comfort of your own palm. Of course, that is stretching the imagination a little bit, but unless your PC activities comprise mostly of just checking email and typing a document once in a long, long while, then the LG Optimus 4X HD would certainly be an ideal candidate to consider if you want to update your smartphone.
According to Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company, “LG introduced the world’s first Dual-Core smartphone exactly one year ago and today we’re announcing the next milestone. But speed in itself isn’t what makes LG Optimus 4X HD unique, it’s the benefit we’re bringing to customers with the HD multimedia experience in a mobile form factor.”
Just what makes the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor so special? For starters, it is the world’s only 4-PLUS-1 Quad-Core mobile processor that was specially designed for high-level multimedia performance, and to sweeten the deal, it comes with a fifth batterysaver core that allows it to handle less demanding tasks including active standby and music playback. When you want to push it to the maximum though, the 12-core graphics processing unit (GPU) in Tegra 3 are more than capable of stepping up to the task, delivering a visually rich experience and console-quality game playability.
As for the True HD IPS display that we talked about earlier, the Optimus 4X HD is said to guarantee the finest viewing experience with high resolution, clarity and your eyes need not “suffer” from color or shape distortion. 16GB of internal memory will ship with the Optimus 4X HD, where it will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich so you need not wait for an update right out of the box. A 8-megapixel BSI (Backside Illumination) Sensor camera with LED flash ought to make this one truly desirable smartphone – now to wait for a price and availability announcement.
