LG X3 to be a 4.7 Inch 720p Quad-Core Phone

The chums at PocketNow have gotten their hands on information about another yet-to-be-announced Android handset. LG will apparently be coming to market with a beast of a device called the LG X3. We’re not sure what the X3 is for but this thing will have a 4.7 inch 720p display, a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, an 8 megapixel rear camera, a 1.3 megapixel front camera, 16GB of internal storage, an NFC chip and more. We could be in store for a nice treat at Mobile World Congress as they often tend to have a decent showing there. Winner?

    Having a G2x now, I bet the battery life on this thing can only be measured in nanoseconds…but it looks sexy though…

    • ikaden

      I have a G2x too but my battery life is fantastic with a custom kernel/ROM. Still I can’t say I’ve been happy with nvidia/LG when it comes to sharing their driver / reference material. This closed approach is why ICS hasn’t fully come to the G2x in the dev community.

      • http://www.xrks.com/ intangible

        Same here, the G2X has great hardware, but the default LG software install has all kinds of quirkiness (though at least they left off the huge UI changes like MotoBlur or Sense)…
        I just want a manufacturer to give me a rebranded cyanogenmod phone… It’s just AOSP mostly!

        It reminds me of when Windows 95 first came out and the computer manufacturers always put their crappy custom UIs and builds on top of everything for a few years… The crappy pre-installed softwared stayed, but at least the custom OS UI per manufacturer thing died out mostly… example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packard_Bell_Navigator

  • Stephen_Rockefeller

    Why does everyone think that quad core phones will be battery hogs?? Quite the oppsosite actually…..

  • InspectorGadget80

    This is the first best looking phone from LG I’ve seen and hope it comes to AT&T first. Verizon always gets the goods

    • reznorfan0

      nuh uh, you att guys are getting the Note first, we’ve still got nothing but rumors on getting one.

  • toomuchgame441

    Finally, some bigger screen devices. I’m not upgrading to anything that doesn’t have a 4.7″ or greater

  • Aeires

    Simple look, love that it’s only three buttons (no ICS?) and the small bezel.  Also looks thin.

  • http://www.thinknetbook.com Eloquescence

    Capacitive buttons on the bottom are a disappointment — Got a G-Nex and I can’t upgrade to anything unless it utilizes the screen for navigation – the way ICS intends these devices to be. 

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Yeah, but ICS doesn’t REQUIRE it. I like physicals buttons instead of a black bar on the bottom of the screen. Different strokes for different folks..

        I’m with you Chris. No software buttons = more screen real estate for something actually useful.

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZPT7KZSUSYONJBM57UQCO4ZIBQ chris

          Yeah because the galaxy nexus can use that 4.65″ screen on everything, right? Until they managed to allow games, browsers and everything else to fit fully in the screen realestate, no capacitive buttons are useless.

          • Covert_Death

            seems to me that is exactly what he was saying…

      • http://techdomino.com/ Lucian Armasu

        I’d prefer they get rid of buttons altogether and implement only gestures, kind of like the N9 does it. Buttons are a waste of space.

      • Will Sneider

        im going to steal that now

      • MaddmattH

        Agreed. I’d rather have buttons than an empty space below the screen. It would be a different story if they could actually get the screen to take up that space, like what I was hoping to see with the Galaxy Nexus.
        The on-screen buttons on the Nexus are just wasting screen space when they could have been placed on the empty area below the screen.
        Although N9-like gestures would be cool. Swipe up from the bottom instead of having menu key, swipe from the side for task switcher ect…

    • bitch_please

      World’s first problem!

  • Tarik Husejinovic

    The fact that the Dev community does a MUCH better job (we’re talking about lightyears) at coding for the G2x than LG does, makes me want to stay away from anything they make.

  • chris

    Why? Is there something wrong with a 4″ screen that I don’t know?

    • fixxmyhead

      yes its too small. man up sissy

    • bluevoodo

      i know right, im still looking for my next phone but the size’s scare me i want to have everything accessible in one hand, im thinking  of leaving my evo behind and getting a nexus s 4g, yup right size and still pretty current.

  • https://plus.google.com/102290060063255149992 Alek Tritt

    Because the LG 2X was their first duel core phone?

  • Dsparil

    LG is the rock bottom manufacture when it comes to updates, and they make Samsung look good. For a Tegra 3 phone, the Asus Padfone is a month away.

  • The Hater

    LG phone… Never again. This phone (G2X) has made want to even leave my carrier. Jumping to Sprint as soon as the GNex is released there…

  • hulk smash

    8 megapixel rear camera, a 1.3 megapixel front camera. That is so dual core! Lol. Man up LG!

  • melvin young

    Is it that hard to break the 8 megapixel barrier for the camera . Imagine the big advantage you would over all these new phones coming out. Even if you only increased it to 9 megapixel, people would buy it simply for that reason. I know megapixels dont mean a whole lot but the average consumer doesn’t know that, used your head phone makers.

    • A_Hardy

      Sony already announced at 12 Megapixel Sony Xperia Ion at CES

  • BigCiX

    My first and last LG phone. The Thrill!!!

  • godrilla

    Lol lg stop making me laugh

  • http://www.facebook.com/tonyperani Anthony Peran

    At least there are only 3 of them. 

  • stusmygsgbrd

    Good to see quads getting out there, but I hope they get good software and ram, thier 3D offering only had froyo/512 Mb ram. Htc evo 3D has gingerbread/1 Gb ram, although I will say LG were first with 2D to 3D conversion. Sony ought to hang thier heads in shame on some of the old software they used in thier phones.

  • g1andonly

    Who gives a shit about LG anymore on the phone front. Lets stop this crap and demand better performance out of our not even year old g2x before they try to make everyone excited about a new phone. Release drivers, fix problems and focus of phones that are already on the market. ICS in the spring, get real, by then it will be time for the next update. Phones should be good for more than 1 update.
