During the next global mobility show which will take place in Barcelona in February, South Korean manufacturer LG will demonstrate a new top of the line smartphone nicknamed X3.
Adopting an ultra-thin format with bare finish, the device will be powered by a 1 GHz quad-core processor with 1 GB of RAM.
Equipped with a 4.7 inch 720 x 1280 pixel multitouch capacitive tactile LCD screen, the phone will come with 2G, 3G and Wi-Fi A-B-G-N connectivity, a GPS chip, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 as well as a micro-USB 2.0 and mini-jack connector.
An 8 mega pixel camera lens with autofocus will also be on board, with LED flash and geotagging, a 1.3 mega pixel webcam, DivX/XviD compatible multimedia player, FM radio with RDS function and 16 GB of internal memory. For users that still need more space, it will be possible to insert up to an additional 32GB of memory by using the microSD/microSDHC slot.
As for the OS selected to power all of this, the manufacturer has gone with Android version 4.0, code named Ice Cream Sandwich.
