LG’s first quad-core smartphone which was announced in February at the Mobile World Congress, the LG Optimus 4X HD, is finally set to arrive in the Philippines later this month.
The LG Optimus 4X HD features NVidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, a 4.7-inch True HD IPS display (720 x 1280), an 8-megapixel camera, and of course a large 2,150 mAh battery (largest among quad-core phones) with their proprietary SiO+ technology. What’s more, LG will roll-out an update soon that will add an Eco Mode application which users can use to manually disable each individual core of their phone for better control of the phone’s battery.
This quad-core phone will be loaded with LG’s new Optimus UI 3.0 which includes some neat features like QuickMemo, which allows the user to instantly doodle notes on the screen without having to leave the app they are using. LG also added the Time Catch Shot feature on the camera app, which works by letting you select the best shot among the images taken before you press the shutter key.
