Quiz time: Can you name that phone?
Almost each and every day, we witness the announcement or the debut of at least one smartphone somewhere in the world. Naturally, this influx of new gadgets might get a bit of overwhelming even for the biggest tech-head pundits that wake up and jump into bed with the thought of a shiny mobile gadgetry.

Here's why we decided to regularly test your knowledge about the smartphone world and some of its "godfathers". We'll be dropping you a hint or two about a certain interesting device from the past.

Of course, you'll be the ones who'll have to solve the riddle and guess what phone we're asking you about. We've also provided a few pictures of the device in question, but with a catch - naturally, you won't see the brand.

Without further ado, let's see what's today's quiz! Can you name the following device?

Update: Our first quiz proved to be quite easy for many of you that instantly recognized the phone below. Indeed, that's the LG Optimus 2X, the first dual-core phone ever.

This is an excellent device at its time, save for the below average battery life and little or to no software updates (in some regions).

Optimus 2x is the very first dual core phone in the guinness book of records. It was launched alongside with its brother, the optimus black which was then dubbed as the thinnest phone at 9.2mm and the lightest and brightest lcd phone back then ^^
