LG officially announced the Optimus 2X (formerly called the LG Star), with the number two signifying the dual-core Tegra 2 processor (and it will be the first smartphone to have one too).
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
1500mAh Li-Ion battery
Android 2.2 Froyo
The Optimus 2X can record up to 1080p video and output it to an external monitor at full resolution. The pre-installed Android Froyo OS is upgradeable to Gingerbread 2.3 when it becomes available.
The LG Optimus 2X is set to be released in the first quarter of 2011. There’s no mention of any price yet but I’m sure it ain’t going to be cheap. We haven’t really seen any flagship Android phone from LG here in the Philippines (the Optimus One is mid-range) so I’m hoping LG Philippines will change that next quarter by bringing in the Optimus 2X.
