We got a quick tip from LG Philippines that their new flagship
smartphone superphone, the LG Optimus 2X, will be released in the Philippines next month.
LG did not give an exact date but they’re already preparing for the big launch this May 2011. The Optimus 2X is among the very few dual-core smartphones to be available in the market soon.

8MP autofocus camera w/ LED Flash

It’s still not clear if they will upgrade it to Gingerbread out of the box or it will go thru OTA. They’re also mum about the suggested retail price. For now, at least we can expect something in a couple of weeks.
Interestingly, Samsung is also set to release the Galaxy S2 next month. That should be an interesting battle between the two.
