LG has already confirmed the Optimus 4X HD will be launched in five European countries as early as next month. Poland, Germany, Sweden, Italy and the UK are among the first markets to get the ICS-based smartphone.
Although the handset maker did not provide any details regarding the phone’s exact release date of pricing options, LG mentioned the Optimus 4X HD would be released in other regions as well, including South America, Asia and CIS.
Unveiled one day ahead of Mobile World Congress 2012, the Optimus 4X HD is one of LG’s new top tier Android smartphones. The device will be shipped with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board, and possibly the latest Optimus 3.0 UI.
Even though LG does not mention anything about a possible North American release, the smartphone has just appeared at FCC
(Federal Communication Commission), which points to an upcoming launch in the United States.
According to Engadget
, this is just a global version of the Optimus 4X HD that’s been announced back in February. The phone has been approved with quad-band GSM radio and 3G compatibility on AT&T’s 850 / 1900 network.
We doubt LG will be able to launch the LG Optimus 4X HD in North America as early as June, especially given the fact that the company did not even mention any plans in this regard.
LG Optimus 4X HD is equipped with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz and packs a ULP GeForce graphics processing unit, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
The phone’s main selling point will probably be the stunning 4.7-inch HD-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that supports 720 x 1280 pixels resolution and 16 million colors.
Last but not least, the smartphone boasts an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as a secondary 1.3-megapixel front facing camera for video calls.
