LG’s first quad-core smartphone to hit Europe next month

LG has announced that its new quad-core smartphone, the Optimus 4X HD, will be introduced to Europe in June.

It was first unveiled at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February, and will become the manufacturer's latest Android 4.0 device and comes complete with the largest battery among quad-core smartphones.

Since it was showcased at MWC, the Optimus 4X HD has been upgraded with new SiO+ battery technology.

"Beyond the fast processor, superb display and largest-in-class battery, the Optimus 4X HD is the first LG smartphone to feature the new User Experience (UX)," said Dr Jong-seok Park, president and chief executive of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

The new device will feature LG's Quick Memo feature, which gives business users the ability to jot memos or notes over a screen image for saving or sharing with others. It also allows URLs imbedded in memos to directly connect to web pages.
