LG Optimus 2X gets a January launch

LG-Optimus-2X1

LG’s beast of a phone, the Optimus 2X (also known as the LG Star) apparently will arrive in Europe in January 2011. For those unfamiliar with the phone, it will be the first Nvidia Tegra 2 equipped smartphone to go on sale here in the UK. That means of course that it will be the first dual-core smartphone. Another quirky detail are the Morricone composed ringtones preloaded onto the phone. Running an LG-overlayed Android 2.2, it is equipped with a 4 inch WVGA display, 8GB of storage, an 8MP camera with full 1080p video recording, and a 1.3MP front facing camera. LG have stated that 2.3 Gingerbread will come soon in an OTA update, but other important details like RAM have not been released though estimates of around 512MB will probably turn out true. This spec monster of a phone will be powered by a 1500mAh battery so it will be interesting to see how long it lasts with both Android and those top end specs.

See after the break for the PR mentioning it’s trip over to Europe.

 

To ensure that the beautiful music is paired with a suitably impressive platform, LG engineers have been hard at work perfecting the audio performance on its latest mobile phones. The exclusive music will be preloaded on LG smartphones starting with the LG Optimus 2X set to debut next month in Europe. LG smartphone users will be able to enjoy a total of 25 of Morricone’s creations – 15 ringtones composed specifically for LG and 10 of his best-known tunes from the world of cinema.”
