Execs at CES 2012 stated to us that their big mobile announcements will be revealed at Mobile World Congress in February – hopefully this leaked image above is one of them. What you’re looking at is currently said to be called the LG “X3”, a quad-core Android-powered device that might be running OS 4.0. The pic of the X3 looks incredibly thin and rumoured to be under 9mm. In addition, the screen is huge at 4.7 inches (resolution of 1280×720). Other rumoured specs have it with an 8MP camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera for video calling, 16GB of memory, 2000mAh battery, NFC capabilities, Wi-Fi, 21Mbps HSPA – possibly LTE-enabled – and launch sometime late Spring or early Summer. Here’s hoping somebody leaks this online, but MWC is only a few weeks away now.

    Just like with PCs, it almost feels like we leap frogged the dual core era.

    I’ve had 2 LG phones in a row that SUCKED… even if I had the $$$ to get one I’m never getting an LG (anything) ever again!

    • Nick

      Agreed, i have had nothing but trouble with LG products, never again.

    • Lazed

      There’s no question LG has terrible build quality. Samsung may love their plastic like Apple loves their glass, but only LG knows how to make atrociously made phones with great specs. I think even Huawei would be better than LG if both companies released phones with the same specs.

    If it has a 3D display then it might just be something to fap to.

    • sead

      The problem with 3D is that it’s pretty much useless in anything (exept Theaters… even then it’s a $$$ grab) better resolution is the way to go!

    I’m pretty happy with my dual-core Galaxy Nexus…it plays 1080p vids smoothly, which is all I would really would want the horsepower for. Quad core? Unnecessary, unless you plan on using your phone for video encoding or something???

    4.7″ screen? I’ll pass.

  • Wia

    Wow did you guys see the LG Prada 3.0 :O

  • Ramy

    Quadcore…pass. Getting a Quadcore phone is just the same like getting an intel I7 laptop for just browsing the web and playing GTA San Andreas…aka useless

    • Martin

      But, if you doing photo editing on the run, an i7 laptop is pretty handy dandy. I can attest to that.

  • bummy

    I love EVERYTHING about it except its branding. Can’t trust LG anymore 🙁 No customer support.

    why the HUGE screen!
    everyone complained that the galaxy nexus was a bit too big, and that was 4.6 inch.
    i think the sweet spot for a cellphone screen is somewhere around 4 and 4.2 inch!

    • Chris C.

      And yet the Samsung Galaxy Note has 5.3 inch screen and it happens to sell pretty well. Thus your point is invalid. Not everyone have small hands you know.

      If you complain about the large screens, you should perhaps just stick to an iPhone instead.

    My LG Optimus LTE is awesome. Zero problems and solid as a rock. Dumped my HTC Sensation 4G for it after I had it in for repairs twice.

  • Todd

    Oh look! A phone that looks like every other phone!

    Where is the style innovation?

  • hallway

    Personally, I never go for an LG phone again.

    I had an Optimus 2X, and waited for ages for the update which never happened.
