It seems that LG are not completely happy with their latest offering, the Optimus 4X LTE. The Chosunilbo is reporting that the South Korean manufacturer is already working on a quad-core 10 megapixel Android device to compete with the ever evolving market.
LG's sales and market presence have been massively overshadowed by the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC's One X. The company already has subsidiaries that supply other smartphone manufactures (LG Display, LG Innotek & LG Chem) including Apple but LG's chairman Koo Bon-Moo has stated that they are not "making enough' of the technology.
With LG shipping just 3.7% of industry wide shipments in Q1 21012 they have a lot of catching up to do. Samsung came in at 30.6% which must have really upset LG as they are both South Korean companies.
While this report is more that likely correct, it shouldn't be astonishing news that LG are working on a quad-core phone with a better camera. With the camera being one of the most used features on a smartphone these days all manufactures will be striving to provide the best camera possible, so the LG news isn't really that shocking.
I wonder if Nokia will consider sharing their camera technology with other companies? If the price is right I could handle an Android device with a 41 megapixel sensor for sure. Could you?
