LG Optimus 4X HD poses for some pictures, shows up next to the HTC One X

We've already seen LG's upcoming Optimus 4X HD' get benchmarked, which made the device look quite impressive. The specs leaked along with the benchmarks were quite good too, but just in case you weren't yet convinced that a smartphone from LG could compete with the flagship offerings of other companies in the design department, images released today may serve to change your mind. 

You can see above the Optimus on the right compared to the One X on the left, but the set of images (the rest of which can be found below the break) include much clearer shots of the front and back of the device, as well as a walkthrough video in Korean. It is clear from the shots that the Optimus 4X includes a front camera, rear camera with flash, and capacitive buttons, but that is all to be expected. Disappointingly, it seems that Android 4.0 has been heavily skinned, and is hardly recognizable behind LG's customizations. 

The build, however, seems stellar. Not only does the device look thin, the design is just subtle enough to look elegant. It does look a bit like the white iPhone 4/4S, but the back cover at least is clearly LG's own design. Whether the device is built from plastic or metal isn't yet clear, but from these images the 4X at least looks the part of a quality smartphone.

Despite potential software letdowns, the Optums 4X HD is still shaping up to be one awesome device. Between the 4.7-inch 720p display, 1.5GHz quad-core Tegra 3, and what we now know is beautiful hardware design, it should be a worthy competitor to the likes of the HTC One series. 

As I mentioned before, you can find the rest of the images and video below the break, or refresh LG's news page waiting for them to announce a US release date.
