CES 2011: World's first Tegra 2 superphone
We just got introduced to LG Optimus 2X. old news if you ask us. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang and an LG VP showed the phone that they described as a beauty on the outside and monster inside.

Huang also showcased the phone's HDMI output, which enables you to easily connect it to a TV or monitor. He then demonstrated Angry Birds in full HD and of course you can also play 1080p movies.

Nvidia claims Optimus 2X has console gaming quality, 1080p support, HDMI as well an 8MB camera. LG thinks the design is great, they want you to fall in love with it. This was what the design team came up with, while technicians tinkered with the Tegra 2 platform and showed off what it can do. A game demonstration showed that the new phone is five times faster than previous generation phones based on single-core processors.

All in all it's a fast, good looking phone and it also supports Flash, unlike some devices that come to mind. We are expecting to see LG's new Optimus 2X in retail in several weeks and other vendors will also introduce dual-core phones soon.
