LG Optimus 4X HD not coming to Australia


At Mobile World Congress LG announced a number of phones including the L-Series, Optimus Vu and also the Optimus 4X HD. The L-Series launched here in August and we know that the Optimus Vu isn’t coming to Australia, so what about the 4X? Originally slated to launch here in Q3 the Optimus 4X HD has been getting some pretty good reviews overseas, however when I approached LG Australia about a possible release date they advised that the ‘4X will not be available in Australia’.

As a reminder the specs on the Optimus 4X read pretty well :

  • 1.5GHz Quad-Core Tegra 3 CPU
  • 4.7″ IPS HD 1280×720 Display @ 312PPI
  • 1GB LP DDR2
  • 16Gb on-board storage
  • 8.0MP BSI rear camera and 1.3MP front facing
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 2,150mAh battery
  • 8.9mm thick

If you are still interested in securing an LG Optimus 4X HD then you can look at importers like Mobicity who have it on their website for $419 + Delivery with a 12 month warranty. I`m actually really disappointed about both the Vu and now the 4X HD, both intrigued me, was anyone else interested in the LG Optimus 4X?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
