    If 2011 was the year of the dual-core processor, then 2012 is shaping up to be defined by quad cores, with the HTC Edge/Endeavor, probably the Samsung Galaxy S III, and now, we've learned, the LG X3 all going quad in the first half. Despite its powerful chipset (a Tegra 3 by nVidia) and large, high-resolution display (4.7 inches at 1280x720), the X3 allegedly maintains a sub-nine-millimeter profile. The rear and front-facing cameras are said to be eight megapixels and 1.3 megapixels, respectively, while storage reportedly weighs in at 16GB (supplemented by microSD).

    X3 should run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box; like many ICS-powered handsets set for release this year, it would utilize physical capacitive, and not touchscreen, buttons.

    Radio-wise, we're supposedly looking at 21Mbps HSPA -- although regional bumps to LTE are certainly a possibility-- 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and the latest Bluetooth standard, 4.0. At 2000mAh, the battery sounds like one of the more capacious in this class. Rounding out the specs, according to a trusted source, is an NFC transceiver.

    Don't look for the X3 (under its retail name, naturally) until sometime in late spring or early summer, we hear, although a Mobile World Congress debut next month looks likely.

    yeah. Man, im really getting concern on the phones expenses as far as buying a phone and 4-6 months later it will become obsolete.

    It's not obsolete if you invest on a good phone and don't go for a quick cheap buy. Carriers try to sell you a phone like a retail store with computers. Know what you are getting and what new technology is being researched before you make your choice, so you won't have buyers remorse and spend more to upgrade a recently purchased phone.

    of course, that's the key. to wait for a relatively BETTER phone which stands out and can hold up for 1-2 years with no need of upgrade. But as technology progresses nowadays, that'll be a hard task to do. Nonetheless, they are really good quality phones that are/were worth upgrade like the galaxy s2. Only few of the bunch of phones coming up are going to be declared the best, it's up to us to make our WISE decision before jumping out of the wagon.. :D

    This is why buying the klconnect is a waist. By the end of the year metro will most likely get a quadcore with a good screen not a crappy small screen like the connect.

    Don't Get me Wrong I'm all in for new tech specially when it comes to the PC. But seriously What n the world do we need with a quad-core Phone ??( not saying I'll never get one lol) but foreal ? I know we do a lot with our phones but com'on. I think duo-core is just, fine just my opinon..

    We dont need quad core phones but nevertheless people will buy them so they make and sell them. Just another way to depart you from your hard earned cash. Not saying I wouldnt jump all over one. ;)

    Lol. That's the same thing that happened to DSL and cable internet. People were really interest in those sort of stuff but as time passed, it became like really important nowadays. Years later those phone will be no surprise.

    I 100% agree with those of ya that say we dont need the quadcore phones but these companies know they got 90% hooked pure bs we dont need but we still spend our money on it so aslong we the consumer buy useless junk they continue to raise the bar in mobile technology. I guess their real goal is to marry a tablet and a cellphone and fuse them to make????? aio multi-media/phone????? to be honest if i want a tablet ill buy one. i just want a lite super compact phone to make calls txt messages and in occasions check my emails or if im bored ill play angry birds for 10-12 min and put it away. Other than that the extra multi-tasking power is not needed beacause in reality all of us do one task at a time on our phones..... its not like we are going to be burning a dvd while composing an email and playing call of duty black ops all at once on our phones...

    I have an Xbox, PS3, and a PC if I want to play games. Other than games I see no reason why a quadcore would be useful. Again, that doesnt mean I wouldnt buy one lol, just saying. :p

    IMHO, I don't think quadcore phones are going to seriously take off until they come up with one that gets really great gas mileage, or invent a really big(ger) tank (battery) - imagine the power that thing would/could use... but my main concern is - how are they going to cool it?
    I have heat issues with my single core Snapdragon at the stock 1.0GHz.
    I can just imagine the heat sink issues on a quadcore... what's next? A water cooled phone? lol
    :p

    Honestly, you have to think in smartphone terms. While you may not think you multi task much, my phone has weather updating, widgets running, email polling, photos/videos synching, signal status updating, gps going, and possibly music playing all while I'm browsing the web, checking a forum, reading the news, or playing a quick game of choice. If I just want to make the occasional phone calls or send a text message then wtf do I need a smartphone for.

    uh huh specially when traveling, doing alot of playing will bypass the time a little.

    You are absolutely right and the phone I have does all those things perfectly.

    Well, you're lucky then. Believe me, I think this is a good phone but I know a few times a day that sync symbol is going to pop up and whatever I'm doing is going to drop to a snails pace. And I'm not some super-crazy multi-taker so I know there are people who use their phone a lot more than me. I'm not trying to start an argument, just giving another perspective on the situation.I never thought I would feel the need for a 10ghz processor with a 1tb hard drive but just from messing around with Androids I've burned through over 500gb of memory and need more ram to do certain things that I want to do. I understand both sides of the coin though, my wife doesn't feel the need to even upgrade my old Optimus that I gave her.
