LG Optimus 4X HD detailed - the world's first quad-core phone is slim and powerful
posted by Daniel P. / Feb 23, 2012, 1:59 AM
LG is again first to announce a major hardware leap in phones, like what it did with dual-core and 3D last year. It couldn't wait a few days until its MWC events, but issued a press release in Korea detailing its new LG Optimus 4X HD - the world's first quad-core smartphone.
The NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip inside actually has five cores, one with lower MHz count for the mundane tasks like standby and UI navigation, with the other four revving up to 1.5GHz when needed. That helps preserve battery life, but just to be on the safe side LG has included a hearty 2150mAh battery in the handset. This pentacore setup NVIDIA now calls 4-PLUS-1, which should help with marketing it.
It is still kept very thin at 0.35" (8.9mm) throughout, and rather compact, considering it sports the new LG 4.7" True HD IPS display with 720x1280 resolution, thanks to the extremely thin bezel on the sides. An 8MP camera with BSI sensor for better low light snaps and LED flash, 1GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage round up LG's first flagship for the year. Connectivity is taken care of by an HSPA+ 4G radio, MHL port and DLNA media streaming capabilities, along with the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and A-GPS chips.
As far as software is concerned, we will have Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich on the LG Optimus 4X HD, cloaked under the new and improved version of LG's own Optimus UI overlay, that can now be deeply customized to suit your tastes. As for price and avialability, we will have to wait for the MWC event, where our presence will ensure you get all the juicy tidbits about the world's first quad-core phone announced, including a hands-on treatment of the LG Optimus 4X HD.

and now lg optimus 4x hd
phonearena, U will have so much work to do with reviewing all these phones :D
Impressive specs but a bit light on the RAM looks like LG is headed to repeat the same mistakes it did last year and when its going to look to release a good phone like the LG nitro late in the year but by that time its going to be too late with phones like the sgs 3 will eat up the android world.
for now. the problem is as quad cores become common, apps will then be made to use all those cores, which means higher resolution textures and more polygons on screen. that 1gb of ram just isnt enough to handle that much strain. Really, anything in the quad core realm that doesnt come with at least 1.5gb of ram to handle that eventual load, is a total fail. Its like buying a ferrari then realizing it only runs on geo metro tires.
Everything about this phone screams absolute beast, except for the manufacturer. LG is, to use a government agency example, always the low level agent who finds a break through, only to have the higher ups (HTC/Crapsung/even Moogle) say "we're take it from here kid." Sounds amazing today, but I'd wait until after MWC to say this is the best on the market.
being the first doesn't mean they are low level. being first, they set the standard for others. so LG isn't a low level agent, but the high level agent that everyone puts them self against. u can say no, but being the first in the market for so many things, LG is a company that others will base on. the standards set by LG of course loses out to the rest. the rest can make a better phone because of the extra time they have. and obviously they would compare it with LG cos they were the first. LG isn't a low level agent , LG sets standards
