LG Optimus 4X HD Video Shows Astonishing Quad-Core Speeds

The first hands-on video with the newly-announced LG Optimus 4X HD has demonstrated the incredible speed of the handset’s quad-core processor.

Italian mobile site Telefonio obtained some one-on-one time with LG’s entire MWC line-up, including the Optimus 4X HD, 3D Max and Optimus Vu phone/tablet.

However, it’s the detailed look at the 4.7-inch Android 4.0-toting Optimus 4X HD which really caught our imagination.

Usain Bolt? Speedy Gonzales? The speed of light? Whatever time-honoured simile you’d prefer to use, this thing is fast.

As you can see from the above video, the camera is barely able to keep up as the Italian tester whizzes through the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system at speeds we’ve simply never witnessed on a smartphone.

Speaking of ICS, it seems LG has placed a very thick skin on the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.

We were especially impressed by the new touchscreen unlock mechanism which neatly avoids slide-to-unlock and hence should keep Apple’s lawyers away.

3D Max and Optimus Vu showcased

Telefonio was also able to shoot video with the 3D Max and the Optimus Vu tablet before they hit the LG stand when MWC kicks off on Monday.

You can see those hands-ons below.
