After numerous rumors today that the LG X3 would find itself launching as the LG Optimus 4X HD (and later, T-Mobile’s LG G4X) LG has finally taken the lid off their quad-core monster, now officially, the LG Optimus 4X HD. LG hasn’t exactly had the best track record for announcing cutting edge smartphones with matching good looks, but the Optimus 4X could be changing all that.

Featuring an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and 4.7-inch True HD IPS display, the quad-core device will launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Gone is LG’s stale pseudo TouchWiz UI, replaced with something more reminiscent of Go Launcher EX than stock Ice Cream Sandwich. The device also features a hefty 2,150mAh battery while still managing to keep a slim figure at only 8.9mm thick. Somebody up at LG is finally listening.

We’ll get a better look at this device at MWC 2012 when the rest of the Phandroid team arrives on the scene in just a few more days. I’m hyped.
