LG Optimus 4X HD to arrive in Europe soon
LG has announced that its Optimus 4X HD, first revealed to the world at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, in February this year, is finally about to make its debut in the world markets – starting with Western Europe first. Just what kind of hardware does the LG Optimus 4X HD carry? Let us go through a little bit of a refresher here – you will, of course, get the uber speedy NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, not to mention the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system right out of the box so that you need not wait for any software update after that.
The LG Optimus 4X HD is also said to carry one of the biggest capacities among quad-core smartphones at 2,150mAh, and the 4.7″ True HD IPS display is definitely a treat for your eyes. Since the MWC announcement, the LG Optimus 4X HD has also been slapped with a new SiO+ battery technology, Quick Memo for enhanced productivity and Media Plex that delivers an advanced multimedia experience.
To get a better idea on how the NVIDIA 4-PLUS-1 Quad-Core mobile processor works, the Tegra 3 will make use of a fifth core for the best power efficiency and outstanding performance. In order to eke out the maximum performance, the Tegra 3 is will run on all four cores, although when it is in standby mode, the processor will default to the fifth, a battery-saver core. LG claims that a future upgrade will see the introduction of the Eco-Mode which was tailor made for the Optimus 4X HD, where it will enable users to manually shut down any of the Tegra 3’s cores for additional control over power consumption and performance.
Nice to know that the battery itself is removable, so you can always swap it out with another battery when the going gets tough and there is no power outlet in sight. Definitely a plus point here. As for the Quick Memo feature that we talked about earlier, this integration into the operating system of the Optimus 4X HD allows it to be activated within any application, ranging from games to video players. You can also jot memos or notes over a screen image, saving it up for later, or to share it with others.
No idea on pricing just yet, but we do know that Europe will receive the Optimus 4X HD first before Asia, CIS, South and Central America get their hands on it.
