Patient LG fans in Germany will be unwrapping the Optimus 4X HD today with the UK, Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands next in line for a release of LG's answer to the powerful HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3.
With specs like an 1.5GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor, a big 2,150mAh battery and a 4.7in 1280x720 IPS display, the 4X HD is without a doubt a serious bit of kit for 2012. You've also got the delights of Optimus UI 3.0 to look forward to plus Android Ice Cream Sandwich and an 8MP camera to keep up with the smartphone Joneses.
Unlike the curvier Galaxy S3 and HTC One X, it rocks a squared off design and is also 8.99mm thick so this will by no means embarrass you walking down the street despite the grunt and hard-working battery.
Watch out for our in depth review of the LG Optimus 4X HD coming up on Stuff.tv, possibly including a handy nickname to avoid typing out LG Optimus 4X HD all the time.
