LG’s high-end Android smartphone offerings have been somewhat disappointing in the past. As such, when we caught wind of the upcoming LG X3 superphone we were unsure how to react in expectation of this new device. However, based on the information provided Paul O’Brien of MoDaCo, the anonymously leaked screenshots and benchmarks for this handset, LG may have a winner on its hands when they unveil the LC X3 as their new flagship device at this month’s Mobile World Congress.

Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.
Through our multitude of industry contacts... we were able to secure information relative the feature list will include:
- 4.7" HD 1280x720 screen
- Tegra 3 Quad core processor (1.5GHz on single core, 1.4GHz when on 2-4 cores) + SMP Core (core companion) for IDLE task operations which will save battery life
- 2000mAh battery
- 16GB internal memory + microSD slot
- 8MP camera with ultra fast shutter
- 1.3MP Front Facing camera
We were also able to secure some informative screen shots
What can we glean from the screenshots? They suggest that the X3 will have either a lightly skinned version of LG’s overlay running or simply stock Android ICS (4.0.3). The quad-core processor previously mentioned should mean great performance for everyday tasks. And with 16GB internal memory that can be expanded to 48GB thanks to an internal microSD slot, a power processor helps ensure that users have the space to download, stream, and share their music, photos and other data.

Interested consumers may look forward to seeing a 2000mAh battery, 8 megapixel rear-facing camera that supposedly rocks an uber fast shutter. The front-facing camera isn’t as impressive, but will get the job done in a pinch. Through in an NFC chip and you can one of those neat NFC chip enable smartphone protective case wallets that bring a new meaning to fashion and function.
We are optimistic that LG will bring a worthy contender to the Mobile World Congress and dispel the misgivings and fears of those that been scared off by less than stellar mobile OS experiences with LG. If they fall flat, at least we will not be adrift in an Android-less sea of smartphone offerings from other manufacturers.
