LG has announced launch plans for the Optimus 4X HD smartphone that they unveiled at MWC. The quad-core Tegra 3-powered Android 4.0 phone is set to arrive in Europe next month, around the same time the Samsung Galaxy S III is set to launch in the region.
Specifically, the Optimus 4X HD will be out in Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Poland and Sweden in June, followed by other regions after that. The phone is highlighted by a 4.7-inch 720p IPS LCD screen, an 8-megapixel camera, 16GB of internal storage, and the mentioned Android 4.0 OS and quad-core Tegra 3 processor, along with 1GB of RAM.
No word on pricing yet, but we expect it to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy S III on that front as well. LG didn’t mention any plans for a US release yet, but the fact that ‘4X’ name depends on a quad-core chip that doesn’t support 4G LTE – at least not until an update due out in 2013 – makes it unlikely.
