LG has unveiled its first quad-core processor smartphone, LG Optimus 4X HD, combining NVIDIA’s latest 1.5GHz Tegra 3 with True HD IPS display, delivering PC-like performance in mobile size form factor.
“LG introduced the world’s first Dual-Core smartphone exactly one year ago and today we’re announcing the next milestone,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company. “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.”
The NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor is the world`s only 4-PLUS-1 Quad-Core mobile processor designed for high-level multimedia performance but utilizes a fifth battery-saver core to handle less demanding tasks such as active standby and music playback. When running at full speed, the 12-core graphics processing unit (GPU) in Tegra 3 delivers a visually rich experience and console-quality game playability.
Equipped with a 4.7 inch True HD IPS display, the Optimus 4X HD includes 16 GB internal memory and runs on the latest version of Android OS, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Besides the smooth and fast performance, the Optimus 4X HD boasts a 8-megapixel BSI (Backside Illumination) Sensor camera with LED flash and advanced multimedia features to enrich the overall multimedia experience.
The 8.9mm slim and sleek smartphone features a “prism-edged” design with enhanced materials and finish.
