As you all know, LG Optimus 2X - with its attractive design, solid construction and dual core processor - is one of my favorite Android phones from last year.
And if we're going to look at its recently leaked photos and specifications, the follow-up to that powerhouse handset could very well end up as one of the top phones this year. TP Friends, check out LG Optimus 4X HD --
A true flagship release, LG Optimus 4X HD comes with no less than the best technical specs the Korean company could have given a handset this year. For the innards, this Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone runs on a Quad-Core 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex A9 CPU with the geek-favorite NVIDIA Tegra 3 chipset, 1 GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Key features include a 4.7 inch 720 x 1280 pixels HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display, an 8 MegaPixel autofocus camera with LED flash, full HD 1080p video recorder, a surprisingly large Li-Ion 2150 mAh battery and a full range of connectivity options including Wifi, Bluetooth and 3G.
Editor's Note: Notice how LG is always at the forefront of releasing handsets with the latest CPUs. Last year, LG was also the first handset company to release a smartphone with a dual core processor; They even hold a Guinness Book of World Records certification for that. Kudos to LG, really. Gotta give credit where credit is due.
The handset is set to be officially unveiled and announced in Mobile World Congress happening in Barcelona, Spain on February 27th. I'm guessing that LG Optimus 4X HD will land in the Philippines by Q2 this year with a suggested retail price of around Php 30,000.
