MANILA, Philippines – LG’s first quad-core handset is set to hit stores in the Philippines this week as the company seeks to get a firmer grip on the smartphone market.

The Optimus 4X HD is powered by a 1.5 gigahertz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and has a 2,150 mAh SiO+ battery, which is said to be the largest in its category.

LG said all four cores are activated when maximum power is needed, but automatically switches to the fifth, battery-saving core during standby mode.

”The Optimus 4X HD is fast but speed alone isn’t what makes this smartphone great,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Co.

”Differentiated user experience and exclusive features LG engineers have developed for this device set this phone apart as much as its Tegra 3 brain. With Optimus 4X HD, we’ve set the bar quite high for the industry and the competition,” he added.

The Optimus 4X HD is priced at P27,990.
