Quad-core powered LG X3 could get name change to LG Optimus 4X HD
Last year, when LG launched its first dual-core handset overseas, it was called the LG Optimus 2x. On board was a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor. Now, according to PocketNow, the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 powered LG X3 will be getting a name change to the LG Optimus 4X HD. Yes, it all makes sense, and no matter what LG calls the phone, the huge specs on the device are going to have a lot of smartphone fanatics dying to call it one thing-their own.

The LG X3 Optimus 4X HD has kicked the butt of the new Quadrant 2.0 benchmark test. The phone is equipped with a HD 720p 4.7 inch screen with resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a very sharp pixel density of 317ppi. The NVIDIA Tegra 3 offers quad-core speed under the hood and there is 16GB of native storage. An 8MP rear-facing AF camera captures video in 1080p, and there is a front-facing 1.3MP camera for self-portraits and video chat. A 2000mAh battery aboard is not as massive as the 3300mAh cell on the Motorola DROID MAXX, but it still gets the job done.

We expect to see this quad-core beast making an appearance at next week's MWC 2012 in Barcelona and perhaps we will get some idea about availability and pricing. We will be in Barcelona for MWC 2012, so as soon as we hear something, you will know all about it.

It is called the 4x HD. Its official. I wonder if this phone follows on the "L" design on the other leaked phones.

no, it is part of the optimus line not the "L" line.

either way, the x3 fits the bill for my next upgrade.

I like LG but they drop support for their US phones and refuse to update even the popular.

The 2X, 3d, and more are getting ICS, but not the G2X in the US (same phone, but LG, not T-Mobile, is not willing to upgrade it), Thrill 4G, or even the Nitro HD. The only device I see on that list that's in the US is the myTouch Q.

*I have read that T-Mobile is dropping support for the G2X all-together because of horrible reviews across the mat, so LG is not completely at fault. The article says they should be getting this 4X HD

I feel that LG is heading in the right direction with this phone, just hope the battery life is stable enough with those awesome specs.
