If you never really got excited at the prospect of owning the Galaxy S III smartphone from Samsung and have been waiting for a decent alternative to land in Europe, be on the lookout in June. June is the month LG is going to launch the Optimus 4X HD smartphone. The device will land in Germany, Sweden, Great Britain, Italy, and Poland before rolling out to other countries.

We spent a bit of time with smart phone in our hands back during MWC 2012, and the device was appealing for sure. It has a 4.7-inch screen with 720p resolution and uses a quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. The phone also has 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage.

The rear camera is an 8-megapixel unit that can record full HD video, and the phone has a 2140 mAh battery. The operating system is Android 4.0 ICS, and all the hardware is packed into a thin 8.9 mm package. The phone also uses LG software, including Media Flex allowing the control of video with gestures on the screen. Pricing is still unknown at this point, but considering this is a high-end device we expect pricing to be on par with other high-end phones such as the S III and HTC One X.
