LG’s first Quad-Core smartphone will take portable performance to a whole new level, while LG’s new design identity, ‘L-Style’, will be introduced on a number of new, visually striking devices.

“LG will be taking premium smartphones to a whole new level in 2012 with a combination of powerful performance, unparalleled display quality and sophisticated design,” said Brad Reed, Senior marketing Manager, LG Electronics Australia (Mobile Communications). “Our 2012 smartphones and the technologies they offer will establish a number of benchmarks to set LG Mobiles apart from our competition.”

LG Optimus Vu - Ideal Combination for Your Viewing Pleasure

Backed by the  speed and performance of LG’s advanced LTE technology, the large 5-inch display with bright 4:3 aspect ratio makes viewing documents, books, websites and multimedia content easier and more comfortable. The 4:3 aspect ratio screen is optimised for easy viewing and jotting down notes, making the Optimus Vu not only a great smartphone, but a great productivity tool as well.

LG Optimus 4X HD - LG’s First Quad-Core Processor Smartphone
LG’s next milestone is the Optimus 4X HD, which reinforces the company’s multi-core leadership with a powerful quad-core processor running on the latest version of Android OS, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It offers a high definition viewing experience powered by True HD IPS technology.

Equipped with the latest NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, the LG Optimus 4X HD delivers PC-like performance in a smartphone package by efficiently allocating workload to its four cores. The Tegra 3 processor is the world's only 4-PLUS-1™ quad-core mobile processor designed for high-level multimedia performance that also utilises a fifth battery-saver core to handle less demanding tasks. When running at full speed, the 12-core graphics processing unit (GPU) in Tegra 3 delivers a visually rich experience and console-quality game playability.

LG Optimus 3D Max - Complete 3D Entertainment Platform
LG Optimus 3D Max is the latest result of LG’s commitment to portable 3D entertainment. With true performance muscle and the latest in mobile technology, Optimus 3D Max not only offers great 3D viewing but also includes 2D features as well. The Optimus 3D Max provides  viewing enhancement with LG’s bright display. Users can convert Google Earth, Google Maps and other road views to 3D through the enhanced 3D Converter and use the 3D Hot Key to easily toggle between 2D and 3D modes. At MWC 2012, LG will also provide a sneak peek of some upcoming features, such as the HD Converter, Range Finder and DSLR Shot.

L-Style - LG’s New Design Strategy for Timeless Value
LG’s focus on strengthening its design leadership has resulted in ‘L-Style’, the company’s new design identity for mobile devices. The core essence of ‘L-Style’ is a timeless design appeal with attention given to the finer elements of handset design to differentiate LG’s mobile devices.    L-Style’s design philosophy is comprised of five aesthetic elements: Modern Square Style for comfortable grip, Floating Mass Technology for a slimmer look, Seamless Layout for more intuitive key arrangement, Harmonised Design Contrast utilising metallic accents and Sensuous Slim Shapes that grab attention and create desire within the consumer.

At the MWC 2012, LG will unveil three smartphones that embody the initial L-Style concept: LG Optimus L3, LG Optimus L5 and LG Optimus L7.
