Earlier this month, South Korean company LG confirmed plans to bring more high-end devices in North America, in an attempt to boost its sales in developed markets.
The mobile handset maker has also confirmed it will expand its LTE-enabled smartphone market to 10 additional countries by the end of the year, though LG has yet to unveil the list of these lucky regions.
Anyway, since LG announced that more powerful phones would be launched in North America in the second half of the year, we’ve been wondering what particular devices the company plans to release starting next month.
Well, it looks like the folks over at MobileSyrup
have just been tipped off on the upcoming launch of the LG Optimus 4X HD
smartphone in Canada. According to a source close to the matter, the device is expected to arrive sometime “this fall.”
Even though we’re still not sure what carriers will pick this one, we can safely assume that Rogers, Bell and TELUS will be offering the Optimus 4X HD at some point during this year.
LG Optimus 4X HD was officially unveiled back in February, a few days ahead of the Mobile World Congress 2012 trade fair opening. The smartphone only made it to market last month, but it boasts top-notch features.
The phone is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform and packs a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3
processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, which is complemented by an ULP GeForce GPU and 1GB of RAM.
There are 16GB of internal memory inside, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card. On the back, the Optimus 4X HD boasts an 8-megapixel main camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording.
Another strong point of the smartphone is the stunning 4.7-inch True HD-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display, which supports 720 x 1280 pixels resolution and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
