LG introduces the speedy LG Optimus 2X, the first handset with a double-core processor
Available in Korea starting next month, the LG Optimus 2X has been officially introduced by the Korean based manufacturer. Formerly known as the LG Star, the device will be the first to have a dual-core processor under the hood. In this case, a NVIDIA Tegra 2 will be powering the phone, making it the fastest dual-core smartphone in the world.

Europe and Asia are expected to get the device after Korea, and the LG press release made no mention about a U.S. launch although speculation centers around an eventual T-Mobile release. The LG Optimus 2X will come to market with Android 2.2 installed with an upgrade to Android 2.3 expected eventually.

The official specs now include the dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor and a 4 inch WVGA display. The phone sports an 8MP camera with 1080p MPEG-4/H.264 video recording and playback, 1.3MP front-facing one, 8GB of native storage expandable to as much as 32GB using a microSD card, and HDMI mirroring. The handset will come with a replacable 1500mAh battery.

If you checked out the video we recently showed you of a browser war between the LG Optimus 2X, the Apple iPhone 4 and a Samsung Galaxy S, the amazing speed of the Optimus 2X clearly makes its presence known when a web page is rendered almost instantly.

The CEO and President of LG Electronics Mobile Communications, Dr. Jong-sek-Park said, "Dual-core technology is the next leap forward in mobile technology so this is no small achievement to be the first to offer a smartphone utilizing this technology. With unique features such as HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) mirroring and exceptional graphics performance, the LG Optimus 2X is proof of LG’s commitment to high-end smartphones in 2011."
