Late last week LG posted a comment in their quarterly results that hinted a few more powerful smartphones were coming to North America sometime in “the second half” of this year. There was no confirmation that this specifically included Canada, but we’ve now been tipped that LG’s first quad-core device will indeed be launching here. According to our source, who sent us a few pictures, the Optimus 4X HD will be coming carrier shelves “this fall” in white. This means sometime after September 22nd as this is the first day of fall 2012. In addition, there was no word on who the carrier is, but you can most likely bank on it being either TELUS, Rogers or Bell.
The specs of the Optimus 4X HD have it running Android OS 4.04 Ice Cream Sandwich with Optimus 3.0 overlay, comes with with a quad-core 1.5GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 4.7-inch True HD-IPS display (720×1280 resolution), NFC-enabled (via LG Tag and you’ll get 3 NFC tags in the box), 8MP camera that shoots 1080p HD videos capture, 1.3MP front-facing camera with 720p HD video, 2150mAh battery.
We’ll have more info soon…
