Although we're still waiting on the global announcement, LG Korea has already announced the Optimus 4X HD one of the first Tegra 3 based smartphones. The 4.7-inch display is expected to have a 1280 x 720 IPS panel. LG also claims a device thickness of 8.9mm, although it's unclear if that's a uniform thickness or just at the device's thinnest point. 

NVIDIA's Tegra 3 powers the 4X HD, although the version in LG's phone runs at up to 1.5GHz compared to 1.4GHz in ASUS' Eee Pad Transformer Prime. As Tegra 3 varies its max clock speed with the number of active cores, it remains to be seen what the max frequency is with all four cores active.

We expect to see the Optimus 4X HD and learn more about it at MWC next week.

    Visual, Since when is an ad with a couple girls even close to being considered Child Porn?

    You typing the Words "Child Porn," is closer to committing porn than this picture.

    Funny thing, my wife gave me her Senior picture, she looks like a 12 y/o in it. In fact a woman saw it in my Wallet and commented on my good looking daughter, lol.

    4.7-inch display at 1280 x 720 IPS = more than plenty.

    Given what they do tell us, and assuming a 16:9 ratio screen that gives us sides of:

    4.48in x 1.42in=6.36in^2
    1280 x 720 = 921600 pixels
    so that is 144,869.22 pixels per in^2, or:
    380.62dpi Give or take.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but please show me where I goofed Plz.

    For 4.7" screen with 16x9 ratio, I got dimensions of the screen as 4.1" x 2.3".

    4.1" x 2.3" = 9.43 sq in.
    1280 x 720 = 921600 pixels
    921600 pixels / 9.43 sq in. = 97730.64 pixels/sq in.
    square root that and get ~312 pixels/in.

    @Black1969ta - not sure how you got 4.48 x 1.42 since it's not a 16x9 ratio
