Clove likes their gadgets too, but apparently they've got some inside information: they say the LG Optimus 4X HD will hit their shelves in an unlocked version by June. The price is currently listed at £380 before value-added tax. That's just over $600 US, and fairly typical for a UK superphone. All this is subject to change - Clove and other retailers have a history of guessing at release dates, which are prone to unexpected delays in any case. Unfortunately, they also say that the new LG Optimus 3D Max isn't coming along for the ride.

Mobile World Congress 2012 with multiple phones. We haven't seen much from them in the tablet market unless the new Optimus Vu 5" Phablet counts though. While we expect to see everything from LG at MWC next week apparently the lucky folks from Telefonino.net got an early look of the entire lineup.
PocketNow reports that the LG X3, rumored to be the South Korean manufacturer's new flagship when it appears at Mobile World Congress, will be rechristened the LG Optimus 4X HD. Why 4X? Who knows. Changes from a codename to a more generic name for actual release aren't uncommon, and our American readers should remember that LG tends to bow to carriers when it comes to US branding - see the Optimus LTE and its Nitro HD and Spectrum names on AT&T and Verizon, respectively.
