We’ve just scurried out of Nvidia’s CES 2011 conference with exciting news that Nvidia has just shown off what it’s calling “the world’s first Tegra 2 super phone” – the LG Optimus 2X. A phone that has beauty on the outside, but is a “monster” inside with performance to kick any smartphone into touch. And we’ve just seen it in action for ourselves. Read all about it. This way.
You may have already heard of the LG Optimus 2X, but today it was shown off in front of our very faces, with performance to match the hype.
Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang used took to the CES stage to talk up its Tegra 2 chip. Or rather, the “Tegra 2 mobile super chip” as Jen Hsun Huang put it. He believes that mobile devices today need to be able to perform all tasks with ease and without fuss. That’s where “The world’s first Tegra 2 super phone” comes in.
The LG Optimus 2X is a is a powerful Android “super phone” with the ability to multitask like no other smartphone can. LG Vice President Yonkseok Jang hailed its beauty, also calling it a “monster” inside thanks to its Tegra 2 muscle.
Without going too much into the phones features we got to see the LG Optimus 2X displaying 1080p high definition (HD) video playing effortlessly while running 10 apps simultaneously. Huang said that the Tegra 2 chip has one of the fastest image processors in the world.
He demonstrated so by flicking through the 8-megapixel LG Optimus 2X photos on the device as quickly as his finger could swipe with zero judder or that annoying blur you get when swiping through your mobile photo gallery. Games and apps effortless boot up within a second or two, as demonstrated with a projection display of Angry Birds on the LG Optimus 2X using a HDMI connector to let you play Angry Birds on the television. Though Nokia N8 fans will say they can already do the latter.
Mobile phone fanboyism aside, Huang believes that “super phone” devices such as the LG Optimus 2X are the future of mobile devices. “It’s “the world’s first mobile device that is completely multitasking,” introducing a new generation of “super phone.”
