Optimus 4X HD

LG Korea has announced that the company's upcoming international flagship, the Optimus 4X HD, will arrive in select European counries starting next month. The 4X HD, which is powered by a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, will launch in the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Italy and Poland in June.

LG's new baby, which we first saw at MWC, before getting our hands on it again last week at CTIA, also sports a 720p IPS display, an 8MP BSI camera, 2150mAh battery and a re-vamped version of LG's UI skin. There's no word on U.S. availability just yet, but unconfirmed rumors have suggested this thing may arrive on T-Mobile as the "G4X" -- a successor to last year's G2X.

You'll find more about the LG Optimus 4X HD in our hands-on report from CTIA.

I don't think LG gets the point yet .. the problem with them wasn't thier Hardware,its their SOFTWARE support .. they can make all the greatest and latest hardware in their phones all they want,but they will more then likely not support them with updates.. It seems like lately they are trying to make up for their horrible mistake(s) last year by pumping out intense phones one by one by one.. even if they all come with ICS out the box,thats the last you will ever hear from them and you can expect to either not receive jelly bean (or whatever its gonna be called) until 2014 or not at all period. . pfft

Yeah sadly that is LG. I work for one of the big four and I will always suggest a Samsung, Motorola, HTC, Nokia or apple to a customer interested in a smartphone. I do not like to mention LG unless the customer ask about them. Sadly I met an LG spokesmen who told me ICS is not that important for a phone. I said nothing more.

It seems to me LG could benefit greatly from just running stock Android. If they really want to make a splash they could basically turn their phones into Nexus type device that way they could update their products quickly. They make good enough hardware but right now they are just another company making android phones and for them they seem to be on the bottom of the phone makers. I never see or hear anyone excited for the next LG phone. They should try something different in my opinion.

When you're facing a 2 year contract renewal it's hard getting a device you pretty much know will have little to no support.

If T-Mobile makes this the G4X with aosp ics, I just hope they don't mess up like they did with the G2x
