LG's next high-end smartphone has been leaked and name dropped a few times but today we have received a full slew of specs, and screenshots that basically confirms all previous reports and rumors. Following its older sibling the LG G2x and the Optimus 2x we are now hearing they'll be releasing the LG X3 quad-core Tegra 3 smartphone soon. While that isn't new, the full specs and screenshots below are brand new.

Thanks to popular developer Paul at ModaCo we now have almost the full spec sheet for this upcoming superphone from LG and NVIDIA. The leak confirms the huge 4.7" 1280 x 720p HD display, NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a large 2,000 mAh battery. Add in 16GB of internal storage, micro-SD support and an 8 megapixel camera the LG X3 will be a top-tier device surely to please.

Just like the LG G2x it appears to be mostly stock Android but does have some tweaks by LG, which worries me given the T-Mobile G2x disaster. The new LG X3 will land with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and the shots above are showing the latest, 4.0.3 on board. You can see from the other screenshots from ModaCo the settings page has a few LG tweaks to lock screen, gestures, and power saver. The last one most likely power saving measures for the quad-core processor under the hood.

Looking at the Quadrant results we see some highly impressive benchmark scores. The X3 scores well over 4,400 completely stock thanks to that Tegra 3 processor and stock Ice Cream. The latest Quadrant Benchmark suite now is as accurate as ever with multi-core and ICS support, and we can clearly see that from the X3 benchmark results.

Hopefully LG will be announcing and showing off this new smartphone at Mobile World Congress. They've teased us that they'll have a "revolutionary smartphone" on display and we can't wait to see more in a few weeks.

    I have a g2x, I can’t even video chat since LG left us with 2.3.3 and this was the first dual core phone. I don’t think support for the first quad core phone will be much better.

      I had a G2x and I absolutely loved it. In January my wife & I had to switch to Verizon so I sold my G2x. I got the Galaxy Nexus and ICS is awsome but it seems slower then the G2x (I’d like to see a benchmark comparison). Not tosxe Ooo mention that I got too accustomed to the Gorilla Glass on the G2x because I have a nice scratch on my G-Nexus… As a former LG G2x owner, I can say without doubt that the LG X3 (LG Optimus 4X) will be my new phone. It’s what I’ve been waiting for! If I could change one thing with the X3, I’d keep the OS as close to stock ICS as possible (like the G2x). Take care, -Eric

    I still have a g2x and it is brilliant. Problem is, it’s only brilliant because of the heavy modding I’ve done to it on my own. LG has 0 support for their phones, I would not recommend buying anymore LG phones as they are known to break their promises. They said that the g2x would be supported for 18 months, they failed miserably at keeping that promise.

    I would not recommend purchasing any phones from LG until they prove their support.
