LG Optimus 2X Coming The Magenta Way?

In the last 24 hours the LG Optimus 2X has gotten plenty of play in the wireless world but RCR Wireless has the best news of all, a source that says T-Mobile is the landing spot. We can’t say anything for sure and a launch date is at least a month or two away at best but this wasn’t the first we heard of it today. However, our ninja wasn’t sure but RCR Wireless went to print with it so now so shall we. The dual-core device is said to be a beast of a phone running on Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processor and is capable of running a spaceship, washer and dryer and a barbecue all at once. With CES just three weeks away I’d keep a sharp eye out for news on this device and hope, do a dance or whatever you can to bring some good luck to us T-Mobile folk that we see this launch soon.

LG LAUNCHES WORLD’S FIRST AND FASTEST DUAL-CORE SMARTPHONE

LG Optimus 2X with Tegra 2 Offers Top Multimedia Features for a Better User Experience

SEOUL, Dec. 16, 2010 — LG Electronics (LG) today unveiled the LG Optimus 2X, the world’s first smartphone with a dual-core processor. Along with more powerful multimedia features, the LG Optimus 2X’s high-performance Tegra 2 processor makes for faster, smoother web browsing and applications and lets users multitask with virtually no screen lag.

“Dual-core technology is the next leap forward in mobile technology so this is no small achievement to be the first to offer a smartphone utilizing this technology,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO and President of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “With unique features such as HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) mirroring and exceptional graphics performance, the LG Optimus 2X is proof of LG’s commitment to high-end smartphones in 2011.”

Developed by graphics processor powerhouse NVIDIA?, the dual-core Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip found in the LG Optimus 2X runs at a clock speed of 1GHz and boasts low power consumption and high performance for playing video and audio. Users will experience faster web browsing and smoother gameplay compared with single-core processors running at the same speed as well as instantaneous touch response and seamless multitasking between applications.

The LG Optimus 2X offers 1080p HD video playback and recording with HDMI mirroring that expands content on external displays to full HD quality. The LG Optimus 2X can connect wirelessly to any DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatible digital device such as HD TVs for a console-like gaming experience taking full advantage of the phone’s HDMI mirroring, accelerometer and gyro sensor. The smartphone also includes both rear- and front-facing cameras, microSD memory expandability, Micro-USB port and a hefty 1500mAh battery.

The LG Optimus 2X will be available in Korea next month with countries in Europe and Asia to follow. The phone will initially be released with Android 2.2 (Froyo) and will be upgradeable to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The upgrade schedule will be announced in local markets in due course.

Key specifications:

l 1Ghz Dual-core Processor (NVIDIA Tegra 2)
l 4-inch WVGA screen
l 8GB memory (up to 32GB via microSD)
l 1,500 mAh battery
l 8 megapixel rear camera and 1.3 megapixel front camera
l HDMI mirroring
l 1080p MPEG-4/H.264 playback and recording

    its not a beast phone if it doesn’t have a 4.3+ screen

    • http://tmonews.com David

      I tend to think thats pure opinion! I have small hands, 4.3 can be tough, the HD7 is great, but the size of the phone does get to me sometimes!

        yea thats my point, to me it isn’t. Weren’t there some rumors about it that it would have 4.3 screen?

    YES. glad i waited and didn’t get the nexus s. I’ve been waiting for a long time, ever since those project emerald and sidekick twist rumors. Passed out on g2, Mytouch4g, a jail broken iphone, and of course the nexus s. Now all this things needs is HSPA+ then i’ll be set. Dual Core phones FTW!

      While my NS will be here tomorrow, and I will try it out for the next 30-days to see if I want to keep it or not – this would be a good 2nd phone (should I decide to also keep the NS).

      Wish this LG had 4.3″, but NOT a deal-breaker for me, as long as it has HSPA+ and the “near” Google experience it’s rumored to have (as I read somewhere…?). I think 2011 is going to be an awesome year for the mobile industry – bring it on! :)

  • clark

    who here rather wait for the dual core iphone? just curious

    Glad I didn’t pull the trigger on the Nexus S. I hope this phone has HSPA+

    1. I’m waiting for all the dual cores to come out or atleast be mentioned through some leak
    2. That wait in my time is only till feb lol
    3. hoping crossing fingers grabbing a rabbits foot knocking on wood wishing on a shooting star for a dual core with physical keyboard coming to tmo ( im a gamer)
    4. hoping these high res (i think thats what they are) games look sleek and console like or portable like ( psp nintendo ds etc)
    5. hoping the phones look sexy ( ex. g2, vibrant, windows phone 7 for tmo, ) … ( not an ex. anything mytouch, anything iphone give us something new)
    6. costs in the range of 199.99 and below ( treat us right tmo .. if your reading this)
    7.(if physical keyboard please let that baby have FIVE rows thats 5,cinco, funf, pese ..im runnin out of languages here)
    8.ffc isnt a must but it would be great to keep up with technology ( and ffc’s have been around for years why not implement them onto phones)
    9. DONT SLACK ON YOUR JOB if your going to make a good phone or (for tmo) endorse it THINK about what your endorsing so we dont have another ( motorola) cliq incident
    10…….just listen to us so you dont have people like me writing essays in blogs that 9/10 your not gonna read and everyone think im either a troll, a very smart citizen with punctuation and grammatical errors that i dont care about, or someone who doesnt know how to use to and too right…..thanks for your time ..good day too you all…(and yes i meant that too/to on purpose lol be blessed hope i made someone laugh)

      Oh yeah, if you all like this phone you should check out “LG B”. Now thats a sexy beast!

    I love the features though I feel itll give apple enough time to come out with a device to counter this one. It needs 2.3 stock in my opinion, but this phone can be the gateway to game developees

    Looks like what the Vibrant should be. Superfast(er), HDMI out, TWO CAMERAS!! Oh well, I got my Galaxy S FFC installed yesterday and suprisingly it works without a problem with the Obsidian ROM. I got video chat working and its not a horrible picture(640×480). Only problem is that There are some red horizontal lines on the rear 5MP camera but I’d say its 15-25% bothersome. The ability to do video chat makes up for it.

    1080p recording sounds fantastic but I am more concerned with the quality of the optics. Is it a glass lense? Name brand? What is the sensor size? Has the camera software been optimized by a team of software programmers that know camera processing algorithms? Those are the questions that I think of first. Also, it is great to have dual-cores, only if there is software that is programmed to take care of it, otherwise it is likened unto a V12 650HP with a speed govenor of 100MPH…..

    • Anonymous

      They can’t even get 720p recording smooth so I doubt 1080p is gonna be much better. One day.

  • thereugo

    Sounds great, but with all the phones coming out next year….people might be getting phones every 6 months. Tmobiles HSPA+ isnt even runnning at full capacity so why get a phone that will not take advantage of that network, give it till the end of next year and then see what phone is out and if the Network is running strong. I picked the G2, will do fine until then. Google, HTC updates sooner than this thing. After a while with this G2 then I will be looking for the next thing, maybe.

        Full discount doesn’t happen until 22 months. You can get a partial upgrade discount at a year but not full discounted upgrade price.

        • Greg

          What is the partial upgrade discount? Does it vary by phone? I’d assume this is gonna be $500 like most other T-MO phones you purchase without extension, but I’m wondering what I could get it at with a partial discount (not full discount eligible).

        • Anonymous

          0-11 mo, 12-17mo, 18-21mo and then 22+. It does vary but my best example is I’m at 12-17 and I can buy a G2 for like $309 then I believe it will be about $260 and then $199. I can’t wait till may or june to get my full upgrade and have a crazy selection to choose from.

          Don’t get me wrong, I would love to have this phone as soon as possible. This may actually be the phone to replace my MTG3 (been patiently watching all the new phones coming out and just not feeling any of them until I saw this one), but based on what I read in that press release, it may be a little longer before we see it.

  • MrNiceGuy

    What bothers me is that even though this looks like a good device…..it’s one of the first devices harboring dual core processors and the very fact that its running at 1ghz makes me thing….oh wait a minute….shouldn’t the device be clocking somewhere between 1.5 to 1.8 minimum. I mean this is a dual core???? Am I correct? This is going to need a really damn good battery for it not to drain immensely from normal usage. And because LG is probably going to be the first to release such a device, it calls for a period of trial and error. There will be things going wrong here and there but this in turn gives LG and it’s competition feedback in avoiding those same mistakes on future devices. Also this could be significan’t for the everchanging revolution of such devices which are pretty much in the case mini-computers/tablets by now. Dual core will be the norm come the next few years until people start bitching and want a quad core….I mean, devices nowadays cannot even be called a cellphone anymore….and last but not least…I’d probably buy the device….but then again…..something better comes out a week later and I kinda hate that part of this market. Moral of the story is…..there is no perfect phone but I do believe (and hoping) we will see something close to that by Q3/Q4 of next year. I just want to buy a phone and stop waiting but it’s like the cycle never ends and I just can’t make up my mind because there are too many damn good devices to choose from and something has to give at some point.

    • Oce

      Quote from RCR Wireless articel…”LG’s new dual core offering touts itself to be a world’s first, boasting two 1GHz Tegra 2 processors.” If this is correct then 2 1ghz processors ought to make this baby blazing fast!

    • Anonymous

      Clock speed isn’t everything. In this case the dual processors make better use of the speed since its a shared load. Each processors requires less power to run and therefore will use LESS battery power. Im sure it wont be too long before 2Ghz dual cores are announced but for now the 1Ghz is the king chip. I don’t know the specs but I bet that it can over clock to beyond 1.5Ghz.

        I would not call the Nexus S a great phone, in fact I consider my Nexus One better. The Nexus S has no SD Card, no 720p recording, no FM Tuner, LED Notifications. The Nexus S is a big let down for me, this is not a flagship Google phone.

        • Anonymous

          I agree with everything you said. I wanted to buy the Nexus S so bad but I said forget it, just doesn’t make sense, I have the Nexus One, still IMO one of the best devices out there and I also bought the new MyTouch 4G which is a better device by far then the new Nexus S.

        • Anonymous

          Nexus S IS a flagship google phone whether you like it or not and it is a great phone, just because you don’t like it doesn’t make it otherwise. Google put their name on it so it is a Google Phone, Its called the Google Nexus S, not a Samsung Nexus S. Nexus One is in no way shape or form better than the Nexus S aside from MicroSD Slot, Nexus S will get 720p via OTA just like Nexus One, FM Tuner can be added as well just like Samsung Galaxy S had done it, as far as LED Notifications there are alternatives in the market. Especially when you compare it with what it shipped with from day1. You can keep your Nexus One but as far as being better than the Nexus S? HAH! you keep telling yourself that, it won’t make it true though. Maybe a let down for you but thats not stopping it from selling nor does it stop it from being a Google Flagship Phone.

        • Anonymous

          jBrown1012, Saying things like it can be added and it will be added with an OTA, and alternatives, does not constitute a Flagship device my friend. A flagship phone has everything its previous sibling had and more. The Nexus S does not, it is a stripped down version of the original Nexus One in my opinion. Also ascetically you cant compare the original Nexus one by HTC with this cheap plastic Samsung phone.

          Flagship phone or not it is a failure I’m afraid.

        • Anonymous

          Nexus One did NOT have 720p out of the box yet its still a flagship device. Care to explain that? As well you obviously don’t know what constitutes a flagship device based on your description. A flagship device is the companies current high end device and that is the Nexus S it does NOT have to have everything its predecessor had at all. That is your personal opinion and that is fine but at the end of the day it is still google’s flagship device by facts with opinions aside. Lol the fact that you call the Nexus S stripped down is hilarious because it has the same amount if not more features with a better build quality than your Nexus One. Calling the Nexus S cheap while thinking your HTC Nexus One wasn’t is funny in itself. Oh how I remember the countless, numerous reports of how crappy the hardware was, “Oh but its made of metal!” yeah sure while these issue were prevalant among many users:

          1) 3G connectivity issue

          2) Touch Screen unresponsiveness/sensing incorrect input

          3) unresponsive trackball

          4) WIFI connectivity issue

          5) Lock button response issue

          6) Proximity sensor sensitivity issue

          7) Ambient light sensor issue

          8)bluetooth issues: fails to operate; inadequate volume; intermittent failure to accept commands

          9) speaker: horrible sound quality

          10) ringer: insufficient volume

          11) earpiece: insufficient volume

          12) headset connector: headphones cord activates pause or other functions

          13) manufacturer says phone cannot go in pocket

          14) Phone mutes when calling people and can only be unmuted by turning mute on then off!

          15) missed call notification trackball does not flash

          Yeah… Htc was “great” build quality huh? all that problems in exchange for a metal casing oh joy oh joy

          /s

          If you want to talk about cheap then actually think before you go post ridiculous crap.

          Whether you like it or not just because YOU don’t like it, does NOT make it a failure. You are nobody to even speak about failures with your reply. It is absolutely full of fail.

          The Nexus S is not even a HSPA+ phone. give me a break.

        • Anonymous

          I will not give you a break. Hspa+ doesn’t need to be on here especially when most people get less than 7 mbps on average by the time t-mobile gets up to 14 mbps average it will be near the end of next year. Its an unnecessary feature until the network averages it. Its like complaining about it not having a dual core when the os doesn’t even support it yet or like complaining about a product that doesn’t have an ffc when nobody uses it. there is so much better with the nexus s than the nexus one. At the ends of the day you are complaining about what out doesn’t have

          You sir are an ignoramus. You sound like an old man trying to get the best deal at an electronics shop by dropping features. “I don’t need this and I don’t need that” “just wrap it up you wiper snapper”.

          Well I want the latest and greatest, and if a manufacturer cant offer it Ill take my business else where. Mr, jBrowne1012 may i interest you in a nice Jitterbug phone, it has big buttons. LOL

          I will not give you a break. Hspa+ doesn’t need to be on here especially when most people get less than 7 mbps on average by the time t-mobile gets up to 14 mbps average it will be near the end of next year. Its an unnecessary feature until the network averages it. Its like complaining about it not having a dual core when the os doesn’t even support it yet or like complaining about a product that doesn’t have an ffc when nobody uses it. there is so much better with the nexus s than the nexus one. At the ends of the day you are complaining about what out doesn’t have

          jBrown1012, Saying things like it can be added and it will be added with an OTA, and alternatives, does not constitute a Flagship device my friend. A flagship phone has everything its previous sibling had and more. The Nexus S does not, it is a stripped down version of the original Nexus One in my opinion. Also ascetically you cant compare the original Nexus one by HTC with this cheap plastic Samsung phone.

          Flagship phone or not it is a failure I’m afraid.

          I’ma have to agree with someinternetdude here JB. The Nexus One and the Nexus S are equal at best. I mean the only things the NxsS has on the N1 is a front cam and a .3″ bigger screen. Just about a year after the N1 comes out and it is by no means an outdated phone. The “N2″ doesnt have all the year later bells and whistles and therefore I feel its equal at best and only deemed a “Flagship” because its newer and not greater. If the NxsS came out in 5 or 6 months then its pretty obvious(with up to date hardware) which is a geater phone.

          Sure maybe but my point is that regardless nexus s is googles flagship device ruben if the upgrades are incremental. Nexus s may not have a lot of upgrades but the upgrades it has are more than enough enough to say its better than on. Its something you have to use to see how they are different a demo does not do this device justice

          When you say Google Flagship, let’s be clear it is on the software side. The NEXUS product is supposed to be a showcase of their Software. It is up to Samsung or HTC to include Hardware that meets up to the device.

          Actually Nexus One is way better than the Google Nexus S. Please do you’re research, of course it will sell, afterall its new on the market.

        Don’t forget the G2, many think that is the best phone. T-Mobile rules.

    thats a hot phone and the dual-core should make the battery last longer because both cores with share the load and it should be super fast!!!
