LG began releasing the Optimus 4X HD smartphone in Europe back in mid-June. But as of today, we have some good news for those that who happen to live in the UK and have been waiting to get their hands on this device. Your time will come soon. In fact, it will come later in the month. UK retailer Phones 4u have announced the upcoming availability.
Simply put, you can pre-order the LG Optimus 4X HD as of today and the handset will be available for purchase beginning on August 27th. The initial batch will be available in black and will be offered for free. Well, for free for those willing to shell out £26 per month on a carrier commitment. As for the white variant, Phones 4u noted that will “follow shortly after.”
The Optimus 4X HD features include Android 4.0 ICS along with a 4.7-inch (1280 x 720) True HD IPS display, quad-core 1.5GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 2150 mAh battery, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and an 8 megapixel rear-facing BSI (Backside Illumination) Sensor camera with LED flash.
