There might not be a better time to sell your old mobile phone and grab yourself a new model. With handfuls of terrific new handsets hitting the shelves in the coming months, you’ll need some spare cash and some available pocket space to accommodate any brand spanking new mobiles.
There’s no more enticing model on the market then the LG Optimus 2x, which had been operating under the guise of the LG Star. This neat piece of tech features a Tegra2 dual-core 1GHz CPU, and can boast of being the world’s first smartphone to utilize this new chip. The Optimus will also be flaunting Android 2.2, which is as smooth as an otter in a wetsuit and opens up the user to the huge Android app market.
Earlier in the year at the Mobile World Congress, several more handsets were previewed which will include this dual-core technology, but the Optimus 2x will trail blaze the new kit. Due to all this extra oomph, the Optimus can pack in some very impressive features, like the 1080p video recording capability on a monster of an 8MP camera, which is situated on the rear. There is also the opportunity for DNLA media streaming.
The front-facing 1.3MP camera gives you the video call option and there is also the usual 3G and Wi-Fi bumf on board, plus the obligatory MicroSD slot to compliment the 8gb of in-built memory.
If the Optimus 2x is ticking all your techie boxes and want to get your paws on it ASAP then LG will be expecting you to stump up the cash, and with a plethora of new dual-core handsets and exciting new tech hitting the shelves in the coming months it could be an expensive year for the gadget lover.
