LG Optimus 4X HD heading to Europe in June, gets spec bump in battery life and now media features

LG has officially confirmed that the Optimus 4X HD, unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February, will go on sale in Europe next month.

The Optimus 4X will launch in key Western European markets beginning in June. There was no list of countries that will support the sale, but we can reasonably assume the United Kingdom is among those “key markets” considering that the news comes courtesy of the official UK blog for LG. Clarity on availability should arrive soon as LG wants to get this phone into as many hands as possible.

LG UK also announced that the company has been hard at work since Mobile World Congress, quietly upgrading its flagship phone. The Optimus 4X HD has been upgraded with SIO+ battery technology, Quick Memo, and Media Plex. SIO+ is designed to make the 2,150 mAh battery have more power and extend its run time. Quick Memo is a system-wide feature that allows for note creation in any app and save memos placed over a serene image. This newer version allows for URL to be embedded into the device. MediaPlex enhances the way users play video. It can pinch zoom on live video, adjust playback speed, see thumbnails of other videos without disturbing current playback, and seeing a screenshot preview while seeking a specific point on a video progress bar.

All of these features are designed to sweeten the pot on the many specs already revealed for the LG Optimus 4X HD. That includes a 4.7 inch True HD IPS display, NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 16GB of internal memory, MHL, and more.
