LG X3 screams loudly with its quad-core CPU and ICS goodness - possible MWC debut

0. phoneArena 20 Jan 2012, 12:14 posted on

So far, it’s being reported that the LG X3 will feature that all too lovable quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, while a 4.7” 1280 x 720 display of some sort will accompany its larger than life status – and if that’s not enough, it’s packaged all within a 9mm casing...

Very thin and big screen and quad core. LG did a good job to pull that off.

Its called choice...thats what Android is all about.

After having the G Nex for 2 weeks, its not all that great. The task launcher button and menu button in apps is nice tho.

I hope the screen is some kind of OLED, but if not AH-IPS LCD is good too, read somewhere its better than SuperAMOLED HD :D

LG X3 will be the new LG Optimus 2X, a fail.

They should really take their time making a phone, first doesn't means the best!

I feel the same way. They always just throw these half-baked phones out there and they seem awesome. But it never works out well enough.

If it has a Tegra 3 then it is supposed to use power more efficiently with the 5th core dedicated to low power consumption applications. I believe it will atleast last a day with that battery.

They're all going for bigger screens, quad-core etc...

But camera-wise no-one seems to care? There is no evolution?!

8 megapixels? The LG renoir also had 8 megapixels, and is allready 4 years old or so...

I would love to see a phone with a crazy camera, even if that means it's not amazingly thin!

I know it's not about the megapixels... But in such a small device it is impossible to put in a good quality camera...

No-one seems to be interested in rivalling the Nokia N8, for some strange reason...

Crazy camera means no more anorexic phones! N8 is slim to the extent with a digicam sized sensor...

I will take thin what the phone camera's are at now are more then good enough for 99% of people anyway. For that 1% they will have a normal camera anyway.

I can fairly confidently say, "no freakin way." Most high video games don't even use more than 2 cores

Look nice, everyone is going thin. The new chic is thin with lots of screen real estate. Now lets hope LG has the software and hardware firing on all cylinders and they might have one mighty impressive phone on their hands. My only question is how well does that Tegra 3 perform with using power well? I certainly hope that Google does more to make sure that their OS uses power in the most efficient way, such as always going low power for anything that isn't needed for main phone functions. I'm also tired of programs that run in the background for no real reason and apps that don't have a dedicated stop function that also takes it completely out of RAM.

Heck the OS should have a feature that allows you to set exactly what programs you want launching upon powering up the phone and you should be able to save different launch settings like how Motorola has that profile selection thing on the Droid X and above phones. No hidden processes for any app that you downloaded from the market, apps should have a pro setting and casual that way you know whether or not to disable an app without making your phone unstable. Google should require that all apps allow the user to disable them if they so choose. I hate to disable an app and it somehow reboots itself, kind of like virus programs in windows.

I like Lg sometimes more that HTC. If they can keep good battery life and reception I would consider them for a phone. Their TV's a great though. I love my 50pz950 :)

i just think quad core is over kill for smartphones...lol not saying i mind but maybe they should stop trying to get the fastest cpu and start improving on getting the longest battery life...would love to see the day when smartphones can last 2 days of heavy usage(everything turned on,no power management,couple of hours of gaming,video,web browsing each).

Yea there is nothing that my iPhone 4 can't do that I want it to. For android I can understand dual core but even a snapdragon dual core is fine for even android. Most people really don't need quad core some do of course but they are by far the majority. I would much rather have good battery life as well. Mostly people just want to brag about having the fastest phone.

I really like the design it has a very understated confidence about it. Great job LG but could you keep it stock? Or at least unlock the boot loader. I don't like the UI you guys use. Maybe the ICS version will be better.

I'm sorry but this seems like total overkill. Desktop computers can barely fully utilize 4 cores unless you are doing some serious rendering. Software simply isn't optimized to take advantage of the extra hardware. I knew this was where smart phones were inevitably going, guess I just didn't expect it so soon. I would try not to get all caught in the specifications as that's what most manufacturers are playing, a numbers game.

i always use my smartphone for video calling at any given time. why don't LG produce a phone with at least 3mp cam on the front? i guess they will be THE first for such upgrade if they do so, maybe for the X3?

How about BLAH, we don't care about more mobile devices until cell carriers stop gouging us on data plans and stops tiering and throttling us to death?? How about we are not interested in high speed wallet robbers
