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 [...]
With all the handsets that manufacturers have brought together for display at the MWC, we’re learning a lot about what the next generations of smartphones and tablets will have to offer. While we’d heard about a lot of this hardware before, the expo is giving us a chance to flesh-out our knowledge with previously-unknown details. Those are great to have, but even when we get the full picture on the hardware, oftentimes critical launch information isn’t available. Sometimes that means waiting for a carrier to make an announcement, but today we get some insight into the [...]
It’s that time of the year again, when we’re both happy and sad, excited and disappointed all at the same time. Last year’s Mobile World Congress was all about three things: Android, 3D and speed offered by emerging dual-core processors. This year’s show was not that much different at all, if you come to think of it.
It’s safe to assume that everyone who was there — or following our MWC coverage — understands that, again, Android was all over the place. With or without Ice Cream Sandwich on smartphones or tablets, the Google platform [...]
What a neat little line-up is LG preparing for this year’s MWC! Joining the Optimus VU, Optimus LTE Tag, the L-Series of Optimus L3, L5 and L7 and the LG Optimus 3D Cube/Max is the latest device announced by the manufacturer: LG Optimus 4X HD formerly known as the LG X3 until yesterday.
There’s a 4.7-inch IPS display on the front with a resolution of 1280 X 720 plus a quad-core nVidia Tegra 3 SoC clocking at 1.5GHz under the hood. Also inside is 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, eight-megapixel main camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facer and Android 4.x Ice Cream [...]
The LG Optimus 4X HD is LG’s top of the line device and was announced a couple of days ago at Mobile World Congress. It’s very much a follow up to last year’s Optimus 2X, and ups then umber of CPU cores from 2 to 4 thanks to the Tegra 3 chipset. It has an impressive 4.7″ 720p screen and 16GB of inbuilt storage.
In this hands-on demo, we get to see a look at how the 4-Plus-1 setup of the Tegra 3 works in action with an on-screen CPU meter that changes based on number of cores used. Obviously, when the phone is idle, only one core is active, but when you [...]
