  • Dual-core processor
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 1080p full HD recording

LG’s Optimus 2X smartphone is said to be the world’s first mobile phone to use a dual-core processor, which means it is a faster, more powerful performance, and robust multimedia entertainment features than similar handsets, claims the company.

It will be available initially through Harvey Norman in May, with plans for the handset to be expanded to other retail channels via open distribution in the near future.

Powered by the NVIDIA Tegra 2 mobile dual-core CPU, the LG Optimus 2X is said to offer performance improvements in web browsing and gaming, with these improvements made clearer when comparing the LG Optimus 2X to single-core smartphones running at the same clock speed. Users can multitask between applications and an instantaneous touch response, along with vivid graphics and a console-like gaming experience.

The LG Optimus 2X offers a Full HD multimedia experience with 1080p video recording and playback.Optimisedfor connectivity and file sharing, the device features content mirroring via a Micro HDMI port, which allows content on the phone to be easily viewed on larger TVs or PC monitors with a single cable. With its gyro sensor, HDMI mirroring allows users to play motion-sensitive games on larger screens.

It also features 7.1 multi-channel virtual surround sound, and is the closest product to feature theatre-quality entertainment on a mobile device. Furthermore, file-sharing is said to be made easy with DLNA connectivity, which lets users transfer stored content to and from compatible digital devices.
