Smartphones Cross Into Dual-Core Territory With LG Optimus 2X

South Korea's LG Electronics unveiled the LG Optimus 2X, a smartphone with a dual-core processor.
This uses Nvidia's (Nasdaq: NVDA) Tegra 2 processor, making for faster, smoother Web browsing and a better multitasking experience.
The Optimus 2X will be released with Android 2.2; it will be upgradable to Android 2.3 later.

Optimus 2X Tech Specs
The Optimus 2X will offer 1080p high-definition video recording and playback with HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) mirroring.

This will let users run the videos on external displays at full HD quality. It will also allow a console-like gaming experience on external DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance)-compatible digital device, such as HD TVs.

The Optimus 2X will be able to connect wirelessly to external DLNA devices.

The phone includes an accelerometer and gyro sensor. It also has a micro-USB port. The phone has a 1500mAH battery, LG said. It has a 1.3MP front-facing camera and an 8MP rear-facing camera.

Other Optimus 2X features include a 4-inch WVGA screen, and 8GB of memory expandable to up to 32GB using a microSD card.

Optimus 2X's Heart
The Optimus 2X uses a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. This is claimed to be the world's first mobile dual-core CPU. It is a dual-core ARM (Nasdaq: ARMHY) Cortex A-9 CPU.

The Tegra 2 includes an ultra-low power GeForce graphics processing unit (GPU). This lets it offer up to two times faster Web browsing and up to five times faster gaming. The GPU also includes what's claimed to be the world's first mobile 1080p HD video processor.
