With HTC and Samsung already expected to announce their own quad-core devices at MWC 2012, LG want to be left out of the party. HTC is expected to announce the Edge, Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S III, and LG is rumored to announce the X3.
According to a leaked render received by PocketNow, the LG X3 boasts a large 4.7 inch display and is fueled by NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 processor previously found in tablets. Other details include Android 4.0 on board, 8MP rear facing camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, three capacitive buttons found on the bottom, and NFC. In addition, it is rumored to contain a 2000 mAh battery to provide for some serious juice and likely has 1GB of RAM.
Even though it will launch with 21Mbps HSPA radio, PocketNow suspects it could easily contain an LTE radio depending on the region in which it launches. Unfortunately, we have no idea at this time where the LG X3 could launch — if this rumor even pans out.
At this point, an introduction at Mobile World Congress 2012 seems in order and hopefully launch and pricing details will be announced. There are several reports indicating a possible launch with T-Mobile as the successor to the G2X. Given its code name of X3, we could see it launch on T-Mobile as the G3X, but only time will tell.
