LG Optimus 2X Star has been already listed at the Scandinavian online retailer CDON.com today. Priced at 4999 KR without a contract (the equivalent of $730 USD), there is no delivery date specified. Subsidized pricing drops the cost to 3099 KR ($453.16 USD). The Optimus 2X, formerly known as the Star, is the first phone in the world that’s powered by a dual-core processor — the system-on-a-chip Tegra 2 by Nvidia. Although it would arrive on shelves with Froyo on board, the LG Optimus 2X is expected to receive an update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread soon after launch.
The LG Optimus 2X was announced officially only a few days ago, when LG stated that it should become available for purchase starting with January in Korea, with other markets in Europe and Asia to follow shortly after. This high-end smartphone boasts a 4.0-inch 480 x 800 capacitive touchscreen display, a 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, an 8GB of internal memory, a microSD crad slot (up to 32GB), 3G, A-GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, an HDMI port and runs on Android 2.2 Froyo OS
