At NVIDIA's CES press conference today, LG and NVIDIA gave us all the first look at the LG Optimus 2X, which they call the "world's first Tegra 2 superphone". It's the first phone to use NVIDIA's Tegra 2 chipset, and it's impressive to say the least. The plan, according to LG's Yongseok Jang, was to create beauty on the outside, and a monster on the inside, and it looks like they succeeded. The specs:
- 1Ghz Dual-core Processor (NVIDIA Tegra 2)
- 4-inch WVGA screen
- Android 2.2 (Froyo), upgradeable to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
- 8GB memory (up to 32GB via microSD)
- 1,500 mAh battery
- 8 megapixel rear camera and 1.3 megapixel front camera
- HDMI mirroring
- 1080p MPEG-4/H.264 playback and recording
No word on carrier, or pricing, but we're on the lookout. Hit the break to read the official press release, and see the Optimus 2X pass the latest in smartphone benchmarks -- Angry Birds on the big screen.
