LG Optimus 2X launched, priced!

LG Philippines today launched the LG Optimus 2X, it’s flagship Android smartphone that comes with a Tegra 2 processor — the first dual-core Android handset in the market.

Together with the Optimus 2X, LG is also launching the Optimus Black (as a more affordable, mid-range handset).

LG Optimus 2X (LG P990) specs:
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

LG reps tell me that the estimated price for this phone, when it comes out in LG Concept stores next week, is about Php27,990.

    im rooting for this baby’s internal life usage and battery life.. since dual core sya!! ang alam mo mabili mag init yung mga ganyan.. cutting the usage and life ng phone..

    since detachable naman yung
    battery mas angat 2 sa IPHONE..

    pero heck!!..

    if ur a gadget lover why think thrice..
    im planning to buy one pag formally narelease na xa sa market :))

    fyi, don’t buy this.. got one just few days ago.. parati mag-hung pag your doing multi-tasking.. usually, nagiging black yung screen for a couple of seconds.. then sometimes, bagal ng response when you flick the phone..

    or it’s just me – how i use it..

      According to the popular Korean website Danawa.com the handset (samsung galaxy s II) retails for 455,000 Korean wons sim-free, which equals €290 or $425.

    globe exclusive ulet ang sgs2 dito sa pinas.

    kung ibbase nio naman sa pricing sa ibang bansa asa 33-36k ang presyo ng sgs2.

    can you upgrade it to gingerbread?

  20. Avatar for technobaboy technobaboy says:

    considering it’s dual core and a 4-incher, mukhang pwede na ang price

  21. Avatar for name name says:

    this is no where near SGS2, but it’s price is really appealing, and of course the SGS2 will come with a BIGGER pricetag. but i’d rather go HTC when it comes to Android, but why don’t HTC make a better battery life and screen? WHY?!?! Anyway, LG should really prove their self, they’ve been out of the limelight for so long now, they can’t afford to loose another year. Goodluck LG and thanks for making the landing of the first dual-core smartphone here in RP earlier than expected :)

    Optimus Black (as a more affordable, mid-range handset).

    —–Since when did the Optimus black become a mid-range handset? =))

    -same screen (type and resolution) as the 2x
    -single-core 1ghz vs Tegra2 (2x)
    -same RAM (512MB)
    -2GB vs 8BG internal memory
    -5MP AF w/ LED vs 8MP AF w/ LED

    -That isn’t exactly a mid-range phone. =)

    • Avatar for lawrence27 lawrence27 says:

      It is already a mid-range phone considered that it has a single core processor. My HTC desire hd was considered a high-end phone when I bought it last january but now it is just considered a Mid-range because of the dual-core phones that are coming out lately, most specially the 1.2ghz dual core ones.

    • Avatar for Carlo Angelo Carlo Angelo says:

      And the to-be-released HTC Wildfire S has been demoted to a low-end phone? And the current LG Optimus One and HTC wildfire to what? – dumbphones/featurephones? :)

      IMO, the Optimus Black is still within the high-end spectrum, price-wise, I think it’ll be playing around the 19K-22K price point. But, that’s just me. =) I’m not speaking in behalf of everyone. =)

    • Avatar for Carlo Angelo Carlo Angelo says:

      In fact, they’re both priced the same in Germany. Both phones cost €499. (Which suggests that the Black might be in the same price point as the 2x; or maybe around 2,500PHP to 3,000PHP less than the 2X)

      company ang nagddictate kung pang anong range ba yun particular model nila. kahit na ba quad core na tegra yan pag sinabi nilang midrange model yan e midrange yan.

      o ayan 20k lang daw ang optimus black accdg to lgph pang midrange nga talaga yun presyo.

    i still have to wait for the price Samsung Galaxy S2.

  26. Avatar for Jon Jon says:

    Nice specs. Doesn’t look appealing though. Agh. The interface looks ugly as well. Sana nag stock Froyo na lang.

    Speaking of, a dual-core phone only sporting Froyo? Sayang, sana Gingerbread na lang.
