Although it will now compete with other smartphones running on Android's 2.3 Gingerbread platform, the Froyo running Optimus 2X has been described as 'blisteringly fast' in the UK. However, LG says it will announce an upgrade path to 2.3 later in the year.
It is powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2 modile dual-core CPU, which has clear advantages in web browsing and console-like gaming experiences.
It also offers multitasking between applications and instantaneous touch response along with vivid graphics.
Users also get the benefit of a full HD multimedia experience with 1080p video recording and playback.
The Optimus 2X has superior connectivity and file sharing features, and a content mirroring feature via its micro HDMI port, through which you can hook the phone up to a TV or PC monitor.
This feature is aimed at giving gamers a quality, big screen experience that rivals handheld gaming consoles from Nintendo and Sony Ericsson.
Nathan Dunn, general manager of LG Mobile Communications, said: "The LG Optimus 2X's enhanced speed, advanced graphics and high-end features such as content mirroring through an HDMI interface are the kind of high-end features that appeal to Australian consumers looking for the very best in smartphone technology."
