LG has unveiled a host of new handsets at Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona. All of the new phones run Android, with the Optimus 4X and Optimus L-series handsets sporting Android 4.0. The 4X HD is a powerhouse, pairing a quad-core 1.5GHz Tegra 3 processor with a 1280 x 720 IPS display. The Optimus Vu looks to challenge the Samsung Galaxy Note for supremacy in the 5-inch market, though offers an iPad-like 4:3 display ratio. The Optimus 3D Max offers a spec bump over the original Optimus 3D, along with NFC capability, though you'll be stuck on Android 2.3 for now. Finally, the Optimus L7, L5, and L3 bring a touch of style to the company's Android range. Keep track of all LG's announcements right here.
LG's Optimus 4X HD is now rolling out across Europe, with Germany the first to get the Tegra 3-powered device.
If the Prada phone wasn't your thing, perhaps its three cousins from LG are up your alley. The L-Style linue comes in three sizes, each targeted firmly at the middle of the market if the specs and styling is anything to go by.
LG's Optimus 3D Max doesn't have the highest-end specs of LG's offerings here at MWC, but it is a marked improvement over its predecessor, the Optimus 3D
The LG Optimus Vu is not a shy phone / tablet. Like the Galaxy Note, it has a 5-inch screen, but its 4 by 3 aspect ratio makes it a very difficult device to hold in one hand.
LG's Optimus 4X HD is here with a 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 chip inside and a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 IPS display on the outside.
Whether you're ready for a deluge of quad-core Android handsets or not, LG is getting things started with the Optimus 4X HD. The Tegra 3 processor is clocked at 1.5GHz and it's sitting behind a 4.7-inch IPS "True HD" 1280 x 720 display and within and 8.9mm-thin body. Thankfully, it will launch with Android 4.0, which should sing quite nicely on the quad-core chip along with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
LG will be showing three new L-Series Android handsets at MWC named the L3, L5 and L7.
LG has formally announced the Optimus Vu, it's new LTE smartphone with a 5-inch, 1024 x 768 display, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor, and 8-megapixel camera.
We've been hearing a lot about the rumored LG X3 leading up to its expected introduction at Mobile World Congress, and now MoDaCo has uncovered some specs and screenshots that corroborate what we heard earlier
What you see above is supposed to be LG's Optimus 3D 2. The biggest change between the this and its predecessor, the Optimus 3D, is that it's rumored to be 2.1mm thinner and 20 grams lighter, which lines up well with earlier rumored specs for the device.
We're not sure what focus group studies are providing fuel for this race toward 5-inch smartphones, but at least now we can compare two of the most fashionable candidates side by side: LG's Optimus Vu and Samsung's Galaxy Note.
If the Galaxy Note wasn't pushing the big-phone trend far enough for you, LG has something in store: it just posted a teaser for the new Optimus Vu, a smartphone with a 5-inch, 4:3 aspect ratio display.
Details and images of the LG CX3, the alleged successor to the company's Optimus 3D smartphone, may have leaked.
If PocketNow's latest intelligence is accurate, LG's preparing a monster of a phone — the X3 (pictured above) is rumored to include a quad-core Tegra 3 processor along with a 4.7-inch 720p display.
