LG Mobile is awfully quiet lately. We havent heard from them in a while, actually since Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, where the Korean vendor introduced a bunch of new Optimus devices, including flagship quad-core Tegra 3 – LG Optimus 4X HD.
Techblog.gr received a Optimus 4X HD unit for testing purposes to see how it handles in benchmark tests. In Quadrant benchmark test, the smartphone saw a score of 4,512, on AnTuTu 11,147, and 44.5fps on NenaMark2. According to Engadget the Quadrant and NenaMark scores are lower, while the AnTuTu score is higher. The hardware specs are pretty similar on both devices, meaning the raw peformance is minor in this case, we incline to belive this is due to a software problem, it is a test unit after all.
Having said that,the LG Optimus 4X HD features a large 4.7-inch 720p IPS display, a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 (4-Plus-1) chipset, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, an 8MP shooter with 1080p video recording, and the latest Android 4.0 OS (Ice Cream Sandwich).
We are expecting this phone to launch in the UK sometime in May. Regarding the US, there’s no way to tell who will be carrying the device.
