Looks like HTC's quad-core Endeavor may have some competition at MWC, as it seems LG is prepping its own Tegra 3-powered beast, dubbed the LG X3 (P880). MoDaCo has obtained screenshots from the alleged device, showing an impressive Quadrant 2.0 score of over 4400 along with kernel info and other techie stuff.
The site also reports a fearsome list of specs, including the aforementioned 1.4 GHz Tegra 3 chip (1.5GHz when in single-core mode) -- a 4.7-inch, 720p display, 2000mAh battery, and 8MP/1.3MP front and rear cameras. There's also 16GB of built-in storage, expandable via microSD card. And as you may have guessed, it's powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
What's equally interesting, to us at least, is that the screenshots from the X3 appear to be very, very close to vanilla ICS. LG has taken a lot of heat over the quality of its software in the past, so we're sure many will be salivating over the potential combination of LG build quality, a quad-core chip and pure, vanilla Android. On the other hand, these shots are likely from a pre-production unit, so things may change. In any case, we'll be eager to get our hands on this thing in Barcelona, assuming the reports of an MWC unveiling are correct.
You'll find a couple more screenshots over at the source link.
