LG Expected To Introduce Quad-core X3 Smartphone At MWC

CES 2012 may be over, but Mobile World Congress is just around the corner. We're already expecting a number of big announcements in the smartphone space, with most of them surrounding the idea of quad-core handsets. Rumor has it that HTC and Samsung have some quad-core smartphones up their sleeves, and now, new information suggests LG may be joining them.

A newly leaked image shows the all new LG X3,which is expected to feature a NVIDIA Tegra 3 chipset and a 4.7-inch, 1280x720 high-resolution display with physical capacitive buttons below the screen. The X3 is also said to feature a profile that's about 9mm thick. We're seeing a lot of phones with 8MP rear-facing and 1.3MP front-facing web cams, and the X3 isn't likely to be an exception to this trend. Reportedly, the X3 will feature 16GB of onboard storage as well as a microSD card slot.

It's a little unclear whether the X3 will feature 21Mbps HSPA or LTE, though both options are plausible. Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity is also likely. The X3 is expected to run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) out of the box, and will likely ship sometime in late spring or early summer.

Though 2011 was the year of dual-core, 2012 will bring quad-core processors to smartphones. Nvidia’s Tegra 3 processor is said to be five times faster than the dual-core Tegra 2, which debuted in 2010. So if i'm not mistaken a 6 cores could be in process for 2013 or 2014 :-p will like to hear if this could happen :-p

@ AKnudson i dont think the 8 megapixel camera is something new, maybe for you O_O..... My htc evo 4g has 8 MP camera and if im not mistaken the HTC evo 4g was released in June 4, 2010.
