The LG Optimus 4X HD is now up for pre-order in the UK almost a week before its August 23 release.
UK phone retailer Phones 4U announced the availability of the quad-core smartphone on its pre-order listing, which makes it the first retailer to offer the handset.
The LG Optimus 4X HD can be yours for free at the cost of £27 with a two-year O2 contract that includes 200 minutes, unlimited texts and 500 MB of monthly data.
Subscribers can opt to set the device for Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone, but Phones 4U does not offer it on pay as you go.
The Optimus 4X HD, which comes with a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), is the new LG flagship smartphone to rival the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X.
It features an 8.9mm thick frame, a 4.7-inch IPS display, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video, 16 GB of internal storage (microSD expandable) and a 2140 mAh battery.
“The Optimus 4X HD is fast but speed alone isn’t what makes this smartphone so great,” said Dr Jong-seok Park, CEO and president of LG. “Differentiated User Experience and exclusive features LG engineers have developed for this device set this phone apart as much as its Tegra 3 brain.”
