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

Already, HTC’s camp has been buzzing with the Edge/Endeavor, but now it seems that LG is about to gain some momentum as well in the upcoming battle. Today, we’re being treated to the first details surrounding LG’s first quad-core packing smartphone – the LG X3! Yes folks, you heard that right, the image to your right is the first glimpse into this magnificent device that will more than likely be making an appearance at MWC next month.
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! Sounds juicy, right? Of course considering the rendered shot is tantalizing enough to look at!
Meanwhile, the LG X3 will be rocking out with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right from the start, which is something that’s expected out of any smartphone nowadays. As for other specs, it’ll feature an 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing snapper, 21Mbps HSPA, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, 16GB of storage, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.0. Worried about the pitfalls with battery drain with this one? Well, it’s being said that the handset will be packing a hefty 2,000 mAh battery to hopefully give it enough juice to get through a day.
We know, it’s a drool worthy device in every way, but let’s cross our fingers and hope that it’ll indeed be making an appearance next month at MWC. If there’s one LG smartphone worth a look, there’s no arguing that this is it!

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

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.

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...

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.
