LG announced to release Optimus 2X on April 2011. Dual-core technology is the next leap forward in mobile technology.The LG Optimus 2X is a proof of LG’s commitment to high-end smartphones in 2011. Optimus 2X is powered by Android2.2, which can be upgraded to 2.3.Equipped with dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor,clocking in at 1GHZ, and 512mb ram, brings a new era of mobile gaming and multitasking.

However, the device isn’t actually 4G but rather HSPA+ 14.4. HSPA+ 14.4 is beyond 3G but not quite 4G.It has a good 1.3 megapixel front camera for video calling. Sadly, it wont stream Netflix as no Android phone does.

Where the phone really stands out though is the screen. It has a large 4-inch screen with [High Definition Multimedia Interface] mirroring and exceptional graphics performance. It also offers an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and led flash, ULP GeForce GPU, 8GB internal storage with support for microSD up to 32GB, 7.1 surround sound, and HD video record and playback at 1080p.

Lg says, it will give console-like gaming experience, taking advantage of accelerometer and gyro sensor. Users can enjoy HD gaming, view videos and the images shooted from it’s powerful lens, in a HD Television mirroring through HDMI.
