February 23, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

LG’s Optimus line up is expanding faster. Any doubt on that? After the Optimus Vu and Optimus 3D Cube, the Korean company has now unveiled their next smartphone christened the Optimus 4X HD just ahead of the MWC.

The handset is packed with much impressive features that will certainly lure customers by the thousands.

The most attractive aspect about the LG Optimus 4X HD is that the device hides under the bonnet an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor that clocks at 1.5GHz speed.

This means the handset offers improved performance with regard to Internet access and the running of multiple apps at once. The Optimus 4X HD, incidentally, has become the first Tegra 3 quad-core smartphone to be officially revealed.

In addition, Optimus 4X HD is the company’s first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handset. Along with the Android 4.0 OS, the smartphone comes with a little bit controlled version of LG’s custom interface layer.

It sports a 4.7-inch True HD IPS screen with 1280 x 720 resolution. The 8.9mm slim device comes with thin bezels that cover the large screen with minimum impact.

The Optimus 4X HD is equipped with 1GB of RAM, 16GB built-in memory, dual cameras: an 8-megapixel rear snapper with LED flash and a 1.3-megapixel front shooter and a large 2,150mAh battery. DLNA media sharing and MHL support are some of the other notable features in the smartphone.

LG has said that the Optimus 4X HD will be reaching Europe during the second quarter of this year. The smartphone will be launched in other countries too alongside the European roll out. More details on the Optimus 4X HD will be available from the LG booth at MWC.   We are packing our bags for Barcelona. Are you coming too?
