LG Optimus 2X

The LG Optimus 2X is the world’s first smartphone powered by a mobile processor with a dual-core CPU. Along with more powerful multimedia features, the LG Optimus 2X’s high-performance Tegra 2 processor makes for faster, smoother web browsing and applications and lets users multitask with virtually no screen lag.

“LG understands that as Singaporeans live a fast-paced life, they value mobile gadgets that enable them to multitask and do more on the go,” continued Mr James Park. “As the first smartphone which enables hyper-speed and seamless multi-tasking abilities, the LG Optimus 2X is proof of LG’s commitment to high-end smartphones and providing the ultimate user experience for Singaporeans.”

Developed by visual-computing leader NVIDIA, the Tegra 2 processor found in the LG Optimus 2X features a dual-core CPU, each running at a clock speed of 1GHz, along with an eight-core GPU. It also boasts low-power consumption and high-performance for playing video and audio. The result is faster web browsing and smoother gameplay, compared with single-core processors running at the same speed, as well as instantaneous touch response and seamless multitasking between applications.

“The Tegra 2-powered LG Optimus 2X brings mobile computing to a whole new level. We are proud to partner with LG, one of the world’s leading electronics companies, to launch a new super phone providing experiences that have never before been seen,” said Francis Yu, Vice President, Asia Pacific Sales and Marketing, at NVIDIA.

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 1500mAh battery.

The LG Optimus 2X will be available in Singapore on March 2011 at recommended retail price of S$888.00 at all telecommunications outlets.
