We already brought you a quick look at LG’s latest flagship smartphone, the Optimus 4X HD, during Mobile World Congress in February. We brought our high-end video and camera gear to CTIA 2012 here in New Orleans, though, so we figured we’d bring you a much better look at the device. As its name implies, it packs a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.7-inch IPS display with a 1280 x 720-pixel resolution, an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording HD video, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and more. Overall we really enjoy the device, it feels light in the hand but has a plastic back instead of the more premium materials adopted by HTC in its new One series of phones. The volume rocker was also really hard to find (it blends right in with the border) and use. We really do think it’s a compelling option for anyone looking for alternatives to the Galaxy S III or the One X, however, so we’re interested to see if this lands on U.S. carriers. Enjoy the hands-on gallery below and our video walkthrough above.
