LG Collaborate with NVIDIA to Demonstrate the Power of Speed

Manila, Apr. 28, 2011 — LG Electronics today announced in Manila the imminent market availability of the world’s first smartphone with a dual core processor, the LG Optimus 2X (P990).

LG Optimus, meaning ‘best’ in Latin, is comprised of devices running on a range of popular operating systems and Android Tablet PC. The Optimus series is the result of extensive consumer research and development that delved into the way average people gather information in today’s digital age.

Not only does the LG Optimus 2X mean more powerful multimedia features, the Tegra 2 processor makes for faster, smoother web browsing and multitasks with virtually no screen lag. The LG Optimus 2X offers 1080p HD video playback and recording, adding to the industry new contents mirroring through HDMI interface and expanding content on external displays to Full HD quality. The LG Optimus 2X can connect wirelessly to any DLNA-compatible digital device such as HD TVs for a console-like gaming experience, taking full advantage of the phone’s mirroring through HDMI, accelerometer and gyro sensor.

In addition, it incorporates a 4-inch WVGA LCD Full Touch Screen as well as an 8.0 mega pixel camera: a perfect pairing to capture those all-important moments which can easily be shared on social networking sites anywhere, anytime.

Mr. Richard Javier, mobile communications head of LG Electronics Philippines explains, “This is only the beginning in our intelligent smartphone series. LG is a pioneer in mobile communications and we aim to continue developing innovative technology and providing convenient mobile communications experience for our customers in the near future.” Javier believes that the LG Optimus 2X is a great achievement for the company and exceeds expectations in the smartphone industry.
