LG has officially released a quad-core Android smartphone for those in Europe. The handset is the Optimus 4X HD and while LG has noted that it is “now available for purchase” they have yet to disclose many specifics. Needless to say, we suspect the release details will vary from country to country and carrier to carrier. Further details from LG did note that “German customers will be the first to experience the power” and that release will be followed by the Netherlands, Sweden, United Kingdom and Italy with “the rest of the region, along with Asia, CIS, South and Central America will receive LG’s fastest smartphone in the weeks and months ahead.”
Otherwise, while the handset is only now coming available, some may remember back to February and Mobile World Congress when the Optimus 4X HD was originally announced. This handset will arrive with a 4.7-inch (1280 x 720) True HD IPS display and powered by the NVIDIA 4-PLUS-1 processor, which is a quad-core Tegra 3. Other goodies for the Optimus 4X HD include an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2150 mAh battery along with the Optimus UI 3.0 which will be running on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
