Optimus 4X HD will debut in Canada in October and will be available through WIND Mobile
and Videotron.

density battery for more power and longer run times and a superb high resolution viewing
experience with its 4.7-inch True HD IPS display. Since its debut at Mobile World Congress, the
Optimus 4X HD has been upgraded with new SiO+ battery technology, Quick Memo to enhance
productivity, and Media Plex for an advanced multimedia experience.

The Optimus 4X HD offers incredible speed and performance without compromising
battery life, said Geoff McMurdo, Vice President Mobile Communications, LG Electronics
Canada. Users want intuitive software and beautiful hardware and the Optimus 4X HD is
another proof point that LG is a strong player in both areas.

efficiency. For maximum performance, Tegra 3 runs on all four cores, but when in standby
mode the processor defaults to the fifth, battery-saver core. In a future upgrade, LG will
introduce Eco-Mode specifically for the Optimus 4X HD which will allow users to manually
shut down any of the Tegra 3s cores for even more control over power consumption and
