lg optimus 4x hd front

Before you rush out to snap up a new Galaxy S III later this month, take a moment to check out one of its latest competitors, the LG Optimus 4X HD. First announced at Mobile World Congress back in February, LG's latest flagship handset has all the ingredients necessary to give devices like the Galaxy S III a run for their money, and it's coming to Europe next month.

Those ingredients include a 4.7-inch 720p IPS display, a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of 1080p video recording, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

All of that is packed into a svelte 8.9mm-thick shell, and it's powered by the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. The handset also offers a selection of LG's own Android applications and services, like Media Flex and Quick Notes.

The Optimus 4X HD will make its European debut in Germany, Italy, Poland, Sweden, and the United Kingdom during June, though LG is yet to provide a specific release date. The company is also keeping quiet about the handset's price, but we're expecting it to be priced in the same region as the Galaxy S III or the HTC One X.

Are you looking forward to the LG Optimus 4X HD?
