LG announced their flagship Android smartphone for this year back in December, the LG Optimus 2X, and when it was announced the specifications certainly were impressive, although LG didn’t reveal any details on pricing.
Now the LG Optimus 2X has appeared online and is now available to pre-order from one online retailer with a price of £499.99 which means it would retail for about $780 at today’s exchange rate.
This price is of course for an unlocked handset, and it will obviously end up being cheaper when it is available with a range of mobile retailers when you sign up to a monthly contract. The LG Optimus 2X will feature dual core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, and will also features a 4 inch WVGA display.
The Optimus 2X also features 8GB of built ion storage, and it can take a further 32GB of storage via the built in microSD card slot. On top of that the Optimus 2X comes with dual cameras, including a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera for video chat and a 8 megapixel camera on the back for taking photos and recording video.
The LG Optimus 2X will come with Android 2.2 Froyo out of the box, but LG has mentioned that it will be getting upgraded to Android 2.3 Gingerbread shortly after launch.
