Computex: LG Optimus 4X HD

Computex: LG Optimus 4X HD




We had about less than half a day to go around Hall 3 of Computex here in Taiwan and we’ve already seen so many new gadgets to make any geek drool. The NVidia had so many Tegra 3 tablets and smartphones on display, including the LG Optimus 4X HD.

The Optimus 4X HD is the 3rd smartphone I’ve seen that sports a quad-core processor (it uses an NVidia Tegra 3 processor). The design and form factor somewhat reminds me of the LG Optimus L7 although I felt it was somewhat a bit thicker, despite it being just 8.9mm on paper.

The white piano finish looks nice but that silver line around the edge kind of make it look a bit less elegant (for lack of a better term). The UI is still the same Optimus UI 2.0 but it feels very responsive and snappy.

The IPS LCD isn’t that impressive based on quick tinkering I’ve done on the handset (mostly viewing photos). Maybe I’ve have a different impression once I get more time with it.


 

I wasn’t able to take sample photos with its 8-megapixel camera so can’t really say if it’s any good.

Here’s a really short video that shows how fast and snappy the UI of the Optimus 4X HD is:

The hardware configuration of the Optimus 4X HD is almost similar to the HTC One X, although we applaud the fact that is comes with a high-capacity battery (even slightly better than the Galaxy S3).

LG Optimus 4X HD specs:
4.7″ IPS LCD display @ 1280×800 pixels
Tegra 3 processor
NVidia GeForce GPU
1GB RAM
16GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
MHL, DLNA
Bluetooth
HSDPA/HSUPA
GPS w/ aGPS support
8MP autofocus rear camera
1080p video recording
1.3MP front-facing camera
2150mAh Li-Ion battery
Android 4.0 ICS

It’s possible the unit featured in the NVidia booth is still an engineering unit so it’s not that polished.

Of course, we’re still waiting for LG Mobile to launch the Optimus 4X HD in the Philippines (it’s gonna happen sometime in July this year).

    Hmm the first time I saw the phone (the picture), it reminds me of myPhone very first dual sim…i agree with you sir yuga, the silver trim in the side males the phone a little less elegant.

      1. ok ka lang kuya? GS3’s internet browsing wouldn’t even take 5 seconds tapos mas mabilis yang 4X ng 5-10 seconds? baka nmn nung nagbrowse ka sa GS3 e super slow ng connection mo. Globe ka no?

      2. loko ka. IPS LCD lang ang display nito ang sa OneX IPS LCD2 tapos mas maganda pa to?

      3. alisin mo yung HTC OneX dahil IPS LCD din yun. mas accurate at natural tlga ang kulay ng IPS LCD kesa sa AMOLED. sa AMOLED over-saturated at unnatural.

      4. i wouldn’t congratulate LG at this point of time if i were you, epic fail kasi ang super late release nila nito e. if they released this with OneX or at least together with SIII, baka mas marami pang nagconsider nito against the other 2. like me, for instance. kaso its already the 2nd quarter of the year saka pa nila nirerelease sa ibang countries.

    they could have put some more curves on the edges and removed that silver lining to make it look more, well, elegant. Can’t tell about the screen, haven’t seen it in person but i hope it’s like the OneX’s (definitely better than SIII’s superAMOLED which is so unnaturally cartoonish) though OneX has IPS LCD2 and this one’s just got IPS LCD. If the screen would be as great as OneX’s and if it would look more elegant in person, i might switch from my OneX to 4XHD. But, it’s definitely going to be hard to top the screen and build quality of OneX, it’s the definition of gorgeous.
