LG announces dual core processor mobile phone

Consumer electronics giant Lucky Gold Star has unveiled the world’s first dual core processor powered handset, the LG Optimus 2X.

One Mobile Ring reported back in September that LG announced their intentions to produce a mobile phone being effectively powered by two CPUs, where it has now come to fruition.

The LG LG-P900 ‘Optimus 2X’ handset is based on the NVIDIA 1Ghz Tegra 2 dual-core processor, with each core having the ability to act independently for faster Internet access and gaming when necessary – all in order to reduce the power consumption, of running both cores.

3D gaming and other processor intense applications will benefit from the dual-cores, such as flash video and multiple apps running at once with a higher than usual load on a CPU.

LG’s Optimus 2X will be shown at CES in Las Vegas this January, with a 4-inch touch screen, 16GB 8GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, HDMI mirroring, a built-in aerial for digital TV along with an 8 megapixel camera capable of full HD 1080p video recording.

The mobile phone will be released with Android ‘Froyo’ 2.2, although LG insists that ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 will be available soon afterwards. One Mobile Ring believes by the time the LG Optimus 2X arrives, Android 2.3 will be running on the handset.
