LG Optimus 2X with Tegra 2 Offers Top Mul­ti­me­dia Fea­tures for a Bet­ter User Experience 

SEOUL, Dec. 16, 2010 — LG Elec­tron­ics (LG) today unveiled the LG Optimus 2X, the world’s first smart­phone with a dual-core pro­cessor.

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,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO and Pres­id­ent of LG Elec­tron­ics Mobile Com­mu­nic­a­tions Com­pany. “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.”

Users will exper­i­ence 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 smart­phone also includes both rear- and front-facing cam­er­as, microSD memory expand­ab­il­ity, Micro-USB port and a hefty 1500mAh battery.
