LG's announcements at this year's CES were definitely one of the most pleasant surprises, if you could call the LG Optimus 2X, which leaked before the show, a surprise. But what will the company bring to the biggest mobile show this year, the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this February?
Take a look at the image LG sent us for their official event below. Does the handset there look familiar? It sure does to us, as the trapezoid form of the earspeaker and what seems to be the proximity sensor hint strongly at the Optimus 2X. Well, not much of a surprise here, but this is just an educated guess, so it might be a different handset. The Optimus 2X has already appeared for pre-order on many websites such as the German Amazon for a price of around $680 (499 euro).
The handset is expected to be the first
with a dual-core processor and the spec sheet is impressive
with full 1080p HD video recording on the 8-megapixel camera and a
4.0-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Stay tuned as MWC is approaching and we will be there to cover all the latest from the mobile phone world.
