LG Optimus 4X HD Touches Down August 23rd

By Jon Partridge on at

Not quite hitting the June release date we previously mentioned, LG's beastly flagship is finally on its way to our fair British shores in late August and is available to pre-order from Phones 4u now.

The 8.9mm slim Optimus 4X HD is toting Ice Cream Sandwich, a massive 4.7-inch 720p screen and 16GB of internal storage, and its also packing a quad-core Tegra 3 chip which should ensure that it absolutely flies. If you fancy getting the phone for free, contract deals start from £20.50 for 300 mins and 3000 texts on Vodafone, but have a look-see to get a deal that tickles your fancy. And to sweeten the deal, the first 50 pre-orders will get two tickets to see Cheryl Cole at the, err, LG Arena in Birmingham. Brilliant!?

Phones 4u's site reckons that it'll be in your hands on the 23rd, but you'll have to wait a little bit longer if you want to catch it in white, as that's not shipping until early September. Now, about those Cheryl Cole tickets...[CNET Crave]
