LG Optimus 4X HD, 3D Max, Optimus Vu captured on video

Get the first close-up look at LG's new quad core and 3D smartphones

If you were wondering just how fast quad-core smartphones are going to be, check out the first hands-on video with the LG Optimus 4X HD, captured before MWC

LG officially announced its new range of smartphones for Mobile World Congress on Thursday and the first hands-on videos with the devices have appeared on the web, courtesy of an Italian gadget site.

The Telefonino website has managed to score some one-on-one time with the LG Optimus 4X HD, which is the company's first handset to arrive packing the quad-core Tegra 3 processor. The video below will allow you to check out just how fast this smartphone actually is.

The device also boasts a large 4.7-inch display, 1GB of RAM and a massively customised version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We particularly liked the new screen unlock method, which should keep Apple's lawyers away.

Alongside the Optimus 4X HD comes a detailed look at the 3D Max smartphone and the Optimus Vu phone/tablet rival to the Samsung Galaxy Note, all of which weren't set to go public before they appeared on the LG stand at MWC on Monday.

Gaze upon LG's finest new wares in the videos below and tip your hats to the snooping Italians responsible. We can't wait to get our hands on these at MWC next week.
