MOBILE PHONE FIRM LG Electronics has revealed its Optimus 2X smartphone and trumpeted its use of a dual-core processor.
LG's inclusion of the Tegra 2 dual core processor makes the phone a world first, the firm added, and will improve the user experience by smoothing out web browsing, improving application performance and enabling multitasking.
"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 utilising this technology," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO and president of LG.
"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."
The Nvidia Tegra 2 graphics processor runs at 1GHz clock speed and offers low power consumption when playing music or video, making it the ideal fit for handsets, apparently. Users will also benefit from better touch response, the firm added, as well as the aforementioned multitasking.
As for the phone, which users will apparently get for free with this fantastic chip, LG said that it enables 1080p HD video playback, has front and back facing cameras, and includes an accelerometer and gyro sensor.
On release, the phone will hit Korea first and Europe later, and it will come with the Android 2.2 operating system. µ
