Wuh oh! Looks like LG just fired the starter pistol for the trend that’ll almost undoubtedly rule 2011: phones with dual-core processors. Claiming the title as the world’s first dual-core smartphone: the Android-powered LG Optimus 2X.
Now, at this point this thing is about as secret as Julian Assange’s hair color — but up until now, it was known by its internal name: the “Star”. Ready for a spec-fest? Peek behind the jump for the full details.
The Tech Specs:
- 1Ghz Dual-Core Processor (Nvidia Tegra 2)
- 4 inch WVGA screen
- 8 gigs of memory (though it supports up to 32 GB via microSD)
- 1500mAh battery
- 8 megapixel rear camera and 1.3 megapixel front camera
- HDMI mirroring (read: what’s on the screen is what’s piped out over HDMI. In other words, how HDMI-out should work)
- 1080p MPEG-4/H.264 playback and recording
- DLNA for wireless content sharing
Look for this thing to hit Korea next month (running the ever-so-slightly out-of-date Android 2.2, though LG is promising Gingerbread updates), then the rest of Asia and Europe shortly thereafter. As for North America.. your guess is as good as ours.
Yeah, so, I want this. Anyone else? Drop a comment on why or why not down below.
