LG Optimus 4X HD coming to WIND and Videotron in October

The folks at Mobile Syrup have received confirmation that the LG Optimus 4X HD will be coming to Canadian carriers WIND and VIdeotron in October. The Optimus 4X HD is a pretty spectacular device, packing a 1.5GHz Tegra 3 SoC, NFC and an 8MP camera under a beautiful 4.7-inch IPS True HD display. It's one of the best we've seen from LG.

On the software side, the 4X HD runs Ice Cream Sandwich, with a promise of a Jelly Bean update "soon". We don't put much stock on promises of updates from OEMs or carriers, so take this with a grain of salt. Also, interesting news for those of us south of the 54° 40' line -- WIND and Videotron both use the same AWS bands as T-Mobile in the states. Whether or not this means LG is talking to T-Mobile remains to be seen, but we've seen this play out that way before.

There's no word on pricing or an exact date yet, we'll keep an eye out for any news.

  • Waiting for this to release on T-Mobile so I can actually use my upgrade. Hurry up and come to the US.
  • Yeah but there is also the Galaxy Note 2, HTC One X+ and Optimus G which are supposed to be coming to T-Mo by years end as well. Each of these phones is a monster, especially the Optimus G w/ the Qualcomm S4Pro quad core coupled with Adreno 320 GPU.
  • True but the Note 2 will probably be way to big, I haven't seen it in person yet but I am assuming. The One X+ will probably feature the Tegra 3 which cannot compete with the S4 Pro and the battery life will most likely suck and no expandable storage.
  • True, but I think this will stand on its own. There are people who don't want a phone as big as the GNote 2, and the Optimus G will likely be the most expensive phone on T-Mobile. The HOX+ would be the most direct competitor, but it has a smaller, non-removable battery and no removable storage. I could see myself buying one.
