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.
