Either LG has a very leaky faucet or they’re not trying too hard to spread leaks of their upcoming handset lineup before Mobile World Congress. The latest leak is likely the best we’re going to get before the show proper: three high-quality videos showing off the various features of their flagship devices: Optimus 4X HD, Optimus 3D Cube, and the Optimus Vu phone/tablet.

While we don’t really get a good sense of the Optimus 4X HD’s hardware, since the video was engulfed in darkness, this is our first hands-on of the upcoming Android 4.0.3 software that will ship with the device, and it’s a beauty. LG seems to have done a great job eliminating a lot of the overly-colourful, menu-saturated operation that bogged down its Froyo and Gingerbread builds, and stays very true to Google’s original vision for Ice Cream Sandwich.

As for hardware we can see, the Optimus 3D Cube looks delectable in its lithe, dual-5MP body. While the screen resolution is a disappointing 800×480, the hardware looks more modern and professional than the rather-bulky Optimus 3D.

Check out all three videos after the break (in Italian).

    Since when is 800×480 disappointing? Low res by GNexus standards, but not disappointing.

      It is disappointing when the industries standards for high end mobile devices have been upgraded to 720 x 1280, especially on giant phones like the ones seen above

      It’s not about resolution as much as DPI. 800×480 on 3.7″ is fine, 800×480 on 4.3″ is about a 35% drop in DPI, definitely perceptible.

      The problem with making everything 720p is that there’s not really any GPUs outside the Apple space that can keep up. Once we see Adreno 300 and Mali T-series getting baked into SoC’s it won’t be a problem.

    Shit!! Phones are getting bigger and bigger.

    Lg’s upgrade record is as bad as motorolas

    I think Sony will have a good year and if htpc is not careful they might get passed

    At first, phones with big screens didn’t really seem that functional for me. After buying a Galaxy Nexus, I don’t think I could ever go back. Picking up something like an iPhone – it almost feels like a toy.

    LOL the LG Vu really looks like a piece of sh!t brick.

    Fire whoever came up with that idea (to copy the Note).
