LG is gearing up for a full-scale attack on the Android phone scene in 2011, starting by revealing the Optimus 2X – a dual-core Android phone powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 2 platform.
Elsewhere on the hardware side there’s a 4″ screen, 8GB of internal memory, a 1500MaH battery, 8megapixel camera with 1.3megapixel front-facing secondary video chat cam and 1080p video recording courtesy of that Tegra 2. And look, a 3D weather widget. If nothing else, it’s the future of weather widgets.
Nice slab, nice mild and inoffensive UI tweak. Could live with. The Optimus 2X is launching with Android 2.2 in Korea in January, and will gradually arrive in other countries and get upgraded to Android 2.3 over the following months of 2011.
The LG Optimus 2X offers 1080p HD video playback and recording with HDMI mirroring that expands content on external displays to full HD quality. The LG Optimus 2X can connect wirelessly to any DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatible digital device such as HD TVs for a console-like gaming experience taking full advantage of the phone’s HDMI mirroring, accelerometer and gyro sensor. The smartphone also includes both rear- and front-facing cameras, microSD memory expandability, Micro-USB port and a hefty 1500mAh battery.
The LG Optimus 2X will be available in Korea next month with countries in Europe and Asia to follow. The phone will initially be released with Android 2.2 (Froyo) and will be upgradeable to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The upgrade schedule will be announced in local markets in due course.
