LG Optimus 2X enters the Guinness Book of Records

LG Optimus 2X first past the post in dual-core processor race

LG has managed to coerce the venerable Guinness organisation into awarding it a World Record for being the first mobile phone to hit the market with a dual-core processor. They were even awarded a shiny certificate to record their ‘achievement’.

Now we didn’t count LG as Roy Castle and Norris McWhirter fans, but the South Korean giant is obviously desperate to prove they are out looking down on rivals in the processor speed race. They’ll also be equally keen to thumb their noses at their perennial Seoul-based rivals Samsung, who are soon to release their hugely capable Galaxy S 2 dual-core model in the UK.

The flagship Optimus 2X was released here last week at Carphone Warehouse and packs a blazing NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 4.0 Super AMOLED screen and an 8MP camera. The phone boasts Android 2.2, but with all that power at their disposal, new owners will also be hoping for a 2.3 Gingerbread boost in the coming months.

Is this a record worth shouting about or is smartphone success down to far more than processor speed? Let us know what you think of this story on our Facebook and Twitter pages now
