The LG X3’s first photos and tech specs have been leaked a few weeks back, making us all very intrigued by what looked like a great quad-core smartphone. However, even though we were waiting for something special, nothing had prepared us for what we received today from MoDaCo.
A few screenshots have been brought to the public through a ‘’secret MoDaCo source’’ and the juiciest of them all shows us some out-of-this-world benchmark scores. The LG X3, also known internally as the LG P880, scored an incredible 4412 in new Quadrant, which is more than double of the Galaxy Nexus’ score, for example.
Whether this piece of information will prove accurate or not it’s pretty difficult to say right now, but I for one buy it, provided that the X3 will come with the rumored features and tech specs of late.
The second leaked screenshot confirms that the X3 will in fact run Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich with a 2.6.39 kernel, which is the latest release from Nvidia, while the third and last pic shows us a behind the curtains view of the X3’s settings menu. All three screenshots look pretty clean and make us hope that the X3 will run an ‘’untainted’’ version of Android ICS, but for the time being this is just speculation.
The MoDaCo confidential source has also confirmed the rumored features and tech specs of this future beast of a smartphone, including a 4.7-inch HD screen with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution, a 1.5 GHz Tegra 3 quad-core processor, a 2000 mAh battery, a 8 MP rear-facing camera with ultra fast shutter, a 1.3 MP front-facing webcam, as well as 16 GB of internal storage space and a microSD card slot slot.
Once again, there has to be said that there’s no way to know if these pieces of information are actually accurate, so before getting overly excited, I would advise you to wait for the MWC 2012 event in Barcelona, Spain, where the nice guys at LG should come with an announcement of sorts.
