2012 is surely going to the be the year of the quad-core smartphone and so it comes as no surprise that a quad-core smartphone called the LG X3 leaked out today. What is a little surprising is how much detail leaked out. Not only do we have the meat of the the X3’s specifications, but we also have a nice image to marvel over before it arrives, likely at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.
So what you see here is a phone codenamed X3 that will likely be hitting shelves sometime during the third quarter of this year. Yeah, unfortunately, it’s not going to be here for awhile.
A shame, considering the specifications on board.
In addition to the phone’s Tegra 3 quad-core chip from NVIDIA, we also have a massive high-resolution display which sits at 4.7-inches and boasts 1280×720 resolution. It’s also said to have an 8MP rear camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, 16GB of internal storage space, and will apparently have a massive 2,000 mAh battery.
All of that will likely come in a form factor that is just 9mm slim, a design that will also supposedly house an NFC chip and a radio for HSPA+, although LTE will likely be in the mix as well.
It’s also probably going to be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich when it arrives and we hope it does, especially if it’s going to be out in Q3.
The X3 looks to be a very solid device and it has got us excited about what’s in store at this year’s MWC.
