LG Optimus 4X HD hands-on from CTIA

LG's latest flagship made its American debut here at CTIA 2012, and we couldn't resist taking another peek. The Optimus 4X HD crams the best of LG's mobile technology into a superphone form factor that takes on the likes of the HTC One X, and not just because it's also using an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. The phone is scheduled for release in South Korea and Europe this summer.

The phone is LG's first quad-core device and it's first phone to launch with Ice Cream Sandwich, though it's got a similar skin to the ones displayed on previous LG Android phones. The 4.7-inch display naturally uses LG's 720p IPS panel, making for a brilliant and accurate view. 16GB of on-board storage compliments an 8MP rear camera and 1.3MP front-facing camera. The phone is an impressively slinky 8.9mm.

Check out the video hands-on below:

The Optimus 4X HD hasn't been confirmed for an American release, but LG phones tend to get several months of delay between European/Asian and US releases. A more interesting question is whether or not the 4X HD will remain LG's flagship in the interim. Just after Samsung's Galaxy S III event last week, LG pulled the wraps off the Optimus LTE2, with 2GB of RAM, wireless charging and a similar 720p display.

    I do like LG’s recent offerings, their screens just look gorgeous and dare I say, better than Samsung’s! LG Vu, LG 4X Hd and no doubt the LG Optimus 2 LTE will look even better in person once fully unveiled. Plus I hope we’ll see this intelligent self aware smartphone they have planned. Once more OEMs adapt that idea of a truly intelligent phone, we will have truly moved to the next stage of mobile computing.
