LG lining up X3 powerhouse for MWC reveal?

LG lining up X3 powerhouse for MWC reveal?Mobile World Congress is little over a month away now, and there's already plenty to look forward to at the Barcelona showpiece.

And now the rumour mill has churned out another name to add to the list: the LG X3, a quad-core, 4.7in screened Android Ice Cream Sandwich behemoth that's packed with high-end specs.

Whether it retains the X3 name remains to be seen, but it's clear that it's the spiritual successor to the Optimus 2X, which appeared just before at last year's MWC claiming to be the most powerful smartphone in the world.

Now it looks like the 3X will be raising that bar significantly, boasting a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, that huge 4.7in screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720, an 8MP/1.3MP camera combo and 16GB of storage, all within a sub-9mm thick chassis.

Some Ice Cream Sandwich action should help sweeten the deal still further, though it's touch and go whether it will launch with the OS on board or whether you'll have to wait for an update.

It certainly doesn't leave much to complain about – we just hope the LG 3X adds up to more than a sum of its parts.

Just think, if this is as bad as the 2x in 12 months time you'll be able to buy one for sub-£200.

True, LG mess up every phone they make and the Tegra 3 processor is going to be seen as being just as bad as the Tegra 2 (comparatively) in a few months time.

LG & Nvidia need to learn, being first to market doesn't make for the best products.

true and HTC needs to learn just because your last with kick ass headphones doesnt mean your phone will be better than the market leader...

sensation xe vs sgs2 anyone?

Yup, Beats audio doesn't even sound that nice in all honesty. It's just overpowered bass and everything else is forgotten about. I guess that's what happens if your put "Dr".Dre's name on things.

I'll stick with my S2 thanks :p.

I'll stick with mine its likely going to last longer :p

Treab  Jan. 22, 2012 at 18:31

matt101101 / MOD  Jan. 22, 2012 at 20:16

That open source software ;)?

i think you'll find a fair usage policy when you first turned the phone on ;) well unless you had an android phone in the past which meant you by-passed it...

Developing on Android isn't illegal, whatever they write in the FUP. Profiteering from development on the other hand could well be far more questionable.

Sub 9mm and 4.7in screen? Another bendy creaky Twiggy with no stamina?
Boring! People want better battery performance.
