LG's first quad-core smartphone, the Optimus 4X HD, is now available for pre-order via UK retailer Phones 4U, with a confirmed 23 August release date.
Phones 4U opened pre-orders for the Optimus 4X HD on Tuesday. The smartphone is available for free on a 24-month £27 per month contract that offers 200 minutes of talk time, unlimited texts and 500MB of data.
The deal is available via multiple network carriers including Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone.
The Optimus 4X packs a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), not Google's new Jelly Bean version.
The Optimus 4X HD is 8.8mm thick and features a 4.7in display. It also packs an 8MP rear-facing camera with HD 1080p video, 16GB of internal storage expandable via microSD and a 2140mAh battery that the firm claims will last for at least one day from a single charge.
"The Optimus 4X HD is fast but speed alone isn't what makes this smartphone so great," said Jong-seok Park, chief executive of LG.
"Differentiated user experience and exclusive features that LG engineers have developed for this device set this phone apart as much as its Tegra 3 brain."
