LG Optimus 2X coming this May

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.

LG Optimus 2X (LG P990)
4.0″ display @ 480×800 pixels
ARM Cortex A9 1.0GHz dual-core processor (Tegra 2)
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
8MP autofocus camera w/ LED Flash
1.3MP secondary front-facing camera
GPS w/ aGPS support
HDMI port
1500mAh Li-Ion battery
Android 2.2 Froyo

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.

  6. i think its better than the iphone
    i love andriod phones

  7. isn’t the Samsung Galaxy s 2 coming out sa august pa daw?

    But it would be nice if it came out this month along side the optimus 2x, may point of comparison agad. :D

    Ang sakin lang, since this the first ever dual-core phone that has come out, malaki ang chance na hilaw pa siya. And i think kaya agad ni-release toh ng LG is para maunahan ang Samsung, HTC, Motorola, etc sa Superphone market.

    Not saying it’d be a disappointment right away but tulad ng sabi ni csseyah, good decision ang maghintay :)

  8. gusto ko magkaroon niyan soon …

    dapat masang masa din ang presyo.. ano kaya sir yuga kung mag premo ka ng ganyan dito :)
