LG Optimus 2X, the First Dual-core Smartphone: See Specs, Features, Price, and Availability

LG Optimus 2X, the First Dual-core Smartphone: See Specs, Features, Price, and Availability

We have to admit. It’s not something that will twinkle in the sky, so the Korean company won’t call it as LG Star – instead they named it LG Optimus 2X.

Though it doesn’t exactly resembles its ancestor by name, the LG Optimus One P500, in terms of form factor – the LG Optimus 2X looks similar with Apple’s iPhone 4 at the first glance.

This newest gadget from LG is the first in the world to run a dual-core Tegra 2 processor at 1GHz clock speed. It initially runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo), but is upgradable to Android 2.3 or Gingerbread.
