LG and Nvidia today unveiled today at CES the first smart phone with a dual-core processor. With this new capability, first for mobiles, the LG Optimus 2X offers multimedia functions with more efficiency, without delay, or less than any other mobile phone device.
With the 1Ghz Tegra 2 graphics processor by Nvidia, the LG Optimus 2X consumes less power and offers high performance audio and video. According to the specifications, the device can record and play back high-definition video (1080p) and digital devices can be connected via DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance). Moreover, as in the recent late models of smart phones, it will come with an 8.0 megapixel rear camera and a 1.3 megapixel front camera.
One of the most attractive features is ‘HDMI mirroring’ (HDMI TV-out) that will bring the entertainment device to HDTVs. The use of the accelerometer and gyro sensor will make it more interesting to play on the big screen.
During Nvidia’s presentation, the capabilities of the mobile phone were exhibited in more detail. Different games were shown in order to demonstrate the graphics, ‘Angry Birds’ (developed by Rovio Mobile) and ‘Soul Craft’ (developed by MobileBits), and the comparison of the online game ‘Dungeon Defenders’ (Trendy Entertainment) on PC, PS3 and on the Tegra 2 at the same time. It seems like the Tegra 2 processor works fluently at the same speed as in the other two versions.
Other companies are supporting this technology by developing games and apps for this device, like Skype.
Due to the great performance of this new dual-core processor, Nvidia has given a new category to this phone: “super phone”, the next generation of smartphones.
