This year is certainly shaping up to be the year of the quad-core, as another quad-core device has leaked ahead of its scheduled unveil. Today it’s LG’s X3, a supposedly sub 9mm thick smartphone that’s packing quite a hefty amount of goodies. Aside from NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor, the X3 supposedly packs a large, 4.7-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720, 8 megapixel camera, 16GB on internal storage and ICS on launch. Connectivity is brought to us via Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) and HSPA. PocketNow is also reporting a rather large 2000mAh battery, which means that this particular quad-core device may have more legs than its competitors. PocketNow is saying that this particular device will drop in the 1st quarter of 2012, so it makes sense that we might hear the official word come February during MWC.
