The world's first dual-core handset gets official in Korea - LG Optimus 2X

In time for the Google Nexus S' first day of being available for public consumption, LG have announced their latest Android flagship phone, the LG Optimus 2X, the world's first dual-core smartphone. Codenamed as the LG Star before LG made everything clear, although the current name (Optimus 2X) can be the name of the handset only in Korea, has finally been made official and is expected to launch in Korea next month.

As a refresher the LG Optimus 2X, features a 1GHz dual-core nVidia Tegra 2 processor, a 4" WVGA touch screen display, an 8MP rear facing camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, 1080p (that's a lot of "p") HD video recording, 1500 mAh battery, 8GB of internal storage, it can support up to 32GB of external memory, DNLA, a gyroscope, and HDMI output.

When launched the handset will be running on Android 2.2 Froyo, but since LG have confirmed that their existing Optimus line will eventually get that Android 2.3 Gingerbread update it is inevitable that this handset will also get some Gingerbread love.
