The LG Optimus 4X HD has been announced back in February this year and it made its debut on the market in June. Don’t worry, in case you haven’t heard much about it it’s because everyone was busy with the Samsung Galaxy S3, so don’t blame yourself.
Back in June initial reports were indicating that LG’s newest flagship phone will hit the UK market via Clove during the mid-to-late July timeframe. Unfortunately that was not the case and the Optimus 4X HD has not yet been launched in the United Kingdom. Fortunately, if you’ve waited for the next-gen Optimus to hit the market then you’re in for a treat because Phones4U has recently announced the release date of the device in the UK alongside various price tags.
