With everyone else showing-off their latest quad-core gear at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year, LG wasn’t about to be left out, and revealed its Optimus 4X HD running an NVIDIA Tegra 3 chip. With specs like a 720p 4.7-inch screen and gigabyte of RAM, the 4X sounds a lot like HTC’s One X, but the LG model gets the benefit of a bulkier 2150mAh battery. We’ve already seen the Ice Cream Sandwich handset go up for pre-order, on the understanding that the model would see its release sometime around June. So far, though, we’ve been looking at the 4X HD in black; some new imagery has arrived that shows a previously unseen white version of the handset.
Your feelings on the new white 4X will be a matter of personal taste, but the color change does seem to have the effect of making the phone’s already-thin bezel seem even less conspicuous than it did in the original black.
We haven’t heard anything about the potential availability of this new version of the phone, and if we’ll be seeing it land alongside the black 4X this June or of it will trickle-out somewhere later down the line. For the moment, we’ve yet to see retailers expand pre-order options to include this edition.
