LG Optimus 2X announced, dual-core Android phone

LG has taken the wraps off a new dual-core Android smartphone, the LG Optimus 2X.

Nestling under the bonnet of this handset is an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core 1GHz processor, which should mean this phone runs smoother than a twenty-year-old malt being poured down a ski slope.

LG is promising smoother web browsing and application multi-tasking with “virtually no screen lag” (although the company doesn’t make any mention of pouring whisky down artificial ski surfaces, strangely enough). Low power consumption is another boon.

Dr. Jong-seok Park, President of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, commented: “Dual-core technology is the next leap forward in mobile technology so this is no small achievement to be the first to offer a smartphone utilizing this technology.”

“With unique features such as HDMI mirroring and exceptional graphics performance, the LG Optimus 2X is proof of LG’s commitment to high-end smartphones in 2011.”

Other tech specs include a 4 inch WVGA display, an 8 megapixel camera plus a 1.3 megapixel front-facer for video chatting, 8GB of memory (expandable by 32GB via microSD), and full 1080p HD video playback and recording, with HDMI mirroring which can expand content piped to your TV or other display to full HD quality.

It all sounds pretty tasty, although perhaps the one slight disappointment is that it will be running Froyo, Android 2.2, despite the fact that the phone isn’t due out for some time yet over here.

LG pegs the Korean release at next month, with Europe “to follow”, so we’d imagine we’re looking at some time during the first quarter of 2011, well after Gingerbread has been unleashed. Still, an upgrade to Gingerbread (Android 2.3) is promised in due course.
