LG Optimus 2X UK release date confirmed for March

Dual-core LG smartphone to hit the UK this month

Already available in Japan, LG has officially announced that the world’s first dual-core smartphone, the LG Optimus 2X, will launch across Europe later this month.

With its 1GHz dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processing party piece accompanied by a 4-inch 800 x 480p capacitive touchscreen, the Optimus 2X, originally thought to be heading to the UK in late February, has been confirmed by LG to be hitting British soil this month although an exact release date or price has yet to be revealed.

Officially unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show back in January, the LG Optimus 2X will add to its impressively strong spec sheet with the inclusion of an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera with Full HD 1080p video recording capabilities and a second, front-fitted 1.3-megapixel camera to allow for video calling. The 8GB of internal storage can be expanded up to 32GB by microSD.

Somewhat disappointingly set to launch with Google’s Android 2.2 mobile operating system, FroYo, the Optimus 2X has already been confirmed for an imminent 2.3, Gingerbread, update. The full array of Wi-Fi, 3G and HDMI connection options complete the handset’s impressive specs haul.

Will the LG Optimus 2X help launch the breed of dual-core smartphone or is dual-core just a passing mobile trend? Let us know your thoughts via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
