LG Optimus 4X HD
South Korean electronics manufacturer LG has announced the Optimus 4X HD, a quad-core Android-powered smartphone, ahead of Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona at the end of February.
The company unveiled the device on Thursday, promising "PC-like performance" from the smartphone.
"LG introduced the world's first dual-core smartphone exactly one year ago and today we're announcing the next milestone," Jong-seok Park, chief executive of LG's mobile business, said in a statement.
The phone uses an Nvidia Tegra 3 1.5GHz quad-core processor, which also includes a 12-core GPU for a "console-quality" gaming experience. In addition to the four cores, the processor also has a low-power fifth core to save battery life for tasks such as background synching or music playback.
