Though less specific, I’m guessing it’s just a matter of week or two that the release of LG Optimus 2X in the country gets official. Or, it could be a better surprise if it hits stores tomorrow ‘till the end of the week. And if LG manage to do that, it means one thing: the Optimus 2X would have a better position in the local market over Samsung Galaxy S II, another 2-core smartphone from LG’s South Korean contender which launched the handset in its territory last week.
Just in case you’ll ask why I’m really interested about this phone, that’s because it’s the first smartphone being powered by NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chip; making it the first smartphone with a blazing speed of a dual-core processor under its hood according to the Guinness World of Records.
The Optimus 2X will be available as Android Froyo device; however Gingerbread update will be available through OTA (over-the-air). Full specs and featured video after the break.
Update: The LG Optimus 2X launched in the Philippines with a SRP of Php27,990.
