LG’s next smartphone wave has been leaked online, prior to an expected showcase at Mobile World Congress 2012.

Codenamed the X3, the handset is purportedly packing a 4.7 inch display running at a HD resolution of 1280 x 720. A quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset powers the handset, squeezed into a slim 9mm thick chassis. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and NFC tech will both be on-board, alongside an 8MP main camera and 1.3MP front facing one.

Will LG’s latest smartphone fare better than the Optimus 2X, which paled in comparison to Samsung’s Galaxy SII despite being officially the world’s first dual-core handset? If LG can prevent the software problems that plagued that handsets launch, it’s all up for grabs.

We’ll inevitably bring you more on the handset come Mobile World Congress 2012, which kicks off next month.
