LG Optimus 4X HD Smartphone, 4-Plus-1 Processors

| February 29, 2012 |

One year after LG launched the Optimus 2X, the world’s first dual-core smartphone, it has now launched the LG Optimus 4X HD, a next generation smartphone.

This phone is powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 3 1.5 GHz processor, which is the world’s only 4 plus 1 quad core mobile processor. This processor has been specially designed for superior multimedia performance. The 12 core graphics processing unit delivers console-quality visuals that are ideal for gaming.

NVIDIA claims that the Tegra 3 performs up to five times better than that of the Tegra 2, which powers the LG 2X and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Of course, the LG Optimus 4X HD is not the only phone that is powered by the Tegra 3. HTC One X, Huawei Ascend D Quad and the ZTE Era also leverage the might of the Tegra.

The LG 4x HD smartphone promises superior battery life in addition to lightning-fast web browsing and seamless multi-tasking. In fact, the “plus 1” refers to the 5th core that is a battery-saver because it conserves battery life by handling tasks such as music playback and active standby. The battery itself is 2150 mAh.

The LG Optimus 4X HD comes with a 4.7 inch True HD IPS display (1280 x 780 pixels) display. It has a 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal memory, and will run on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

Like most other smartphones, this one too comes with a camera with an 8 megapixel sensor with LED flash. Precise release dates and likely pricing information is not yet available.
