It won't be long before our smartphones take over what we do with our netbooks. Now official, the LG Star as it was known in the rumor mill is now the LG Optimus 2X, and that "2X" in the name is a statement in itself. Let's get straight into this, it basically contains a dual-core Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1GHz. Now what will this handset use the power for? For starters, it is fully capable of recording videos in crisp 1080p with its 8-megapixel rear camera unit. There's also a front-facing one at 1.3 megapixels for the video-calling people. More information and press release after the jump.
Aside from the raw power it can provide, it also has a 4-inch WVGA display. Storage is provided by an internal memory of 8GB, expandable to 32 GB with microSD cards. Peculiarly, the battery has a capacity of 1500mAh, which is typically the ones for single-core smartphones. We now wonder what power conservation will this unit have with the multitude of processes that the dual-core will undergo.
