For Optimus branded Android phones
LG has announced that its upcoming Android phones will be powered by Nvidia Tegra 2 processors. In a strange coincidence, the upcoming Tegra phone is codenamed Optimus, just like Nvidia’s power switching technology.

LG plans to use dual-core Tegra 2 parts clocked at 1GHz. The processors feature 1080p decoding, support for HDMI out, displays up to 1680x1050 and cameras up to 12MP. This practically means that the LG Optimus will be the only Tegra-based smartphone, which really can’t be considered a massive success, since the architecture has been around for two years. Of course, there’s the Kin, but it died an untimely death and it’s not something Microsoft or Nvidia like to talk about.

Sadly, we still don’t have any details on LG’s upcoming Tegra phones. It appears that the Optimus lineup will feature several phones, but it’s unclear whether they will all use Tegra chips.
