LG Optimus 2X Tegra 2 Android Froyo Smartphone in Asia & Europe by 2011; US May Have to Wait a Bit More

December 16, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

LG’s first handset to pack a Tegra 2 chipset that hides under the hood a 1 GHz dual-core processor is now out in the open for you to taste.  The Asian tech major has lifted the wraps off its new Android-powered Optimus 2X smartphone – and it promises to be something of a charmer!

To arrive in the Asian and European markets in 2011, the Android Froyo bearing smart device will come with enhanced processing power capabilities. The Froyo device might get a Gingerbread update later on during the year.

Spruced up with added processing power, the Optimus 2X comes with capabilities to playback 1080p video sans any lag. The display boasts of a 4-inch, 800×480 screen real estate.  LG has also placed two cams – front and rear –  of 8 megapixels and 1.3 megapixels respectively in the device.

Further, it will also be possible to share visuals to larger displays with the HDMI mirroring feature that has been incorporated. The HDMI connection will also let you play Android games on a larger screen by using the phone as a controller.

On the storage front, the Optimus 2X has 8 gigabytes of internal storage, which can be enhanced yup to 32 GB via microSD. The device runs on a 1500 mAh battery.

Asia and Europe, as we said earlier, will get the device in 2011. However, there has been no word on the US roll out. Nor has any leak happened with regard to the pricing factor.
