LG set to bring out dual core processor phones

LG has announced they will be launching dual core based Nvidia Tegra 2 mobile phones, later on this year in their Optimus range of handsets.

The Nvidia Tegra 2 is a twin core mobile processor, which is now being brought into an Android mobile phone by Lucky Goldstar. This could be the world's first dual core CPU handset, when it arrives.

Toshiba has recently aired the Folio 100 Android tablet with the Tegra 2 inside, at Berlin's IFA event but no phone manufacture has announced the new chip will be in a mobile. Microsoft's Zune HD made use of the first Nvidia Tegra chip, as did the Samsung Vodafone 360 M1.

Nvidia's Tegra 2 features a ultra low-power NVIDIA GeForce GPU and is the first 1080p HD mobile video processor, which makes use of two 1GHz processors. This can offer 1080p HD video playback, twice the web browsing speed and up to five times the gaming performance over a single core processor, according to the company.

LG recently announced there will be 10 Optimus handsets launched this year, with this dual core unnamed and unknown mobile being just one of them. The Android powered Optimus handset is to arrive around Q4 of this year.
