Featured: LG bringing the Optimus 4X HD to Canada on Wind and Videotron this October


The LG Optimus 4X HD is heading to our northern neighbors in Canada. And it'll be available on Wind and Videotron next month. The LG Optimus 4X HD is still a rather high-end device, it's not LG's top device right now. That would be the Optimus G which is due to be launched any day now, and coming to the US as the LG Eclipse 4G (probably LTE).

As far as spec's go, were talking a 4.7-inch IPS HD Display, 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM for multi-tasking, 16GB of internal storage, an 8-MP camera on the back, powered by a 2150mAh battery. The Optimus 4X HD also comes with LG's QuickMemo app, and Media Plex.


LG only announced that the Optimus 4X HD was coming to Videotron and Wind Mobile in Canada, the company did not announce a price. But I'd be willing to bet it's around the $100-150 mark with a 3-year contract. Any of our Canadian readers looking to pick up the LG Optimus 4X HD when it launches next month? Stay tuned for the Press Release below.

LG's First Quad-Core Smartphone Coming to Canada This October

LG Optimus 4X HD with Advanced User Experience (UX) Offers Fast Performance, Superb IPS Display and High Capacity Battery


TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2012 /CNW/ – LG Electronics (LG) Canada announced today that the Optimus 4X HD will debut in Canada in October and will be available through WIND Mobile and Videotron.

Beyond the fast NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, LG's latest Android 4.0 device boasts a higher density battery for more power and longer run times and a superb high resolution viewing experience with its 4.7-inch True HD IPS display. Since its debut at Mobile World Congress, the Optimus 4X HD has been upgraded with new SiO+ battery technology, Quick Memo to enhance productivity, and Media Plex for an advanced multimedia experience.

"The Optimus 4X HD offers incredible speed and performance without compromising battery life," said Geoff McMurdo, Vice President Mobile Communications, LG Electronics Canada. "Users want intuitive software and beautiful hardware and the Optimus 4X HD is another proof point that LG is a strong player in both areas."


The Optimus 4X HD is fitted with NVIDIA's 4-PLUS-1 Quad-Core mobile processor, the Tegra® 3, which utilizes a fifth core for the best blend of outstanding performance and power efficiency. For maximum performance, Tegra® 3 runs on all four cores, but when in standby mode the processor defaults to the fifth, battery-saver core. In a future upgrade, LG will introduce Eco-Mode specifically for the Optimus 4X HD which will allow users to manually shut down any of the Tegra 3's cores for even more control over power consumption and performance.

Enhanced User Experience

  • QuickMemo – allows users to write, draw, or jot a memo with their finger directly on any captured screen for instant sharing as an attachment or URL
  • Media Plex – a collection of software features that take image and video playback on the smartphone to a level that until now was only possible on a PC or laptop. Some innovative features include:
    • Fingertip Seek that shows a preview of any video frame simply by touching the progress bar;
    • Live Zooming allowing viewers to zoom in and out by pinching during video playback;
    • Video Speed Control for precise control of the playback speed of videos; Thumbnail List Play which enables users to view thumbnails of videos playing while watching another video full screen.
  • Time Catch Shot – captures images just before camera shutter button is depressed on the 8.0 MPBSI (backside illumination) camera – ensuring you get the best shot every time
