The LG Optimus 4X HD is the first quad-core smartphone from the South Korean consumer electronics giant which will be arriving in Europe later this year, and I would say that it has definitely taken a long time considering how it was first announced at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February earlier this year. Just to go through the specifications, you will find the NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor running inside the LG Optimus 4X HD, coupled with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system right out of the box to get you started without worrying about waiting for a software upgrade. The 2,150mAh battery as well as a 4.7″ True HD IPS display are another two strong points in its favor, and we shall take a closer look at the other specifications in the extended post.

LG Optimus 4X HD has seen an upgrade to the new SiO+ battery technology since the MWC announcement, while Quick Memo has been thrown into the mix to enhance productivity and Media Plex delivering an advanced multimedia experience. At the back lies an 8-megapixel shooter with BSI (backside illumination), and you also have MHL (Mobile High Definition Link) and DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) thrown into the mix as well.

The money question would be this – just when will it arrive Stateside, and for how much?
