Quad-core LG 4X HD could be king of the Optimus hill

Bound for Mobile World Congress, the LG Optimus 4X HD promises a 4.7-inch display, a quad-core processor, and high-end features.

With a 4.7-inch display, the LG is anything but small

We haven't even left for Mobile World Congress yet and LG just keeps the news coming.

On the heels of the LG Optimus Vu, Optimus 3D Max, and the three L-Style handsets, the company also has confirmed the Optimus 4X HD.

The press release was in Korean, but thanks to Google Translate we got a rough, but very promising, look at its specs. And even if something was lost in translation, it's clear that the 4X HD should be at the head of LG's Optimus pack.

On the outside, we'll see a 4.7-inch display with an 1280x720-pixel resolution. That's a massive display that knocks on Samsung Galaxy Note territory, but the candy bar doesn't look too out of the ordinary otherwise. It's dressed in basic black and sports an 8.9mm profile.

Inside is Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), 16GB of internal memory, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel main camera, a second 1.3-megapixel shooter around front, DLNA support, a 2,150mAh battery, and the Nvidia Tegra 3 1.5GHz quad-core processor. Incidentally, that last part leads us to believe the 4X HD is really the previously rumored X3.

Now playing: Watch this: LG Optimus 4X HD

LG has promised to show off the Optimus 4X HD when Mobile World Congress kicks off Monday in Barcelona. We'll be there to give it a shake-down and to bring you the goods on LG's other new handsets. And on that note, it would be a miracle if LG didn't spill more news from now until then.
