LG Optimus 2X: 1080p video taster impresses

One of the upcoming phones that has created a lot of attention lately is the LG Optimus 2X which will be the first smartphone to be released with a dual-core processor. Yesterday we wrote about a price and release date and today we saw a video that may interest many of you.

Apart from the dual-core processor a lot of people were impressed that it would be capable of 1080p video recording and Christopher Trout over on Engadget has managed to unearth a video sample from Greece, apparently taken with the LG Optimus 2X, courtesy of GSM Arena and Tech Blog, which you can see below this story in HD.

While the subject matter could have been more interesting (boats!), the video quality itself looks excellent and it will be intriguing to see if any more such videos turn up. On another note, Blake on Into Mobile reports on the dual-core performance of the phone and has seen some benchmark results from Quadrant which show superb speeds and certainly back up the assumption that for now Nvidia holds the cards with its Tegra 2 chip.

Will you be checking out the LG Optimus 2X and what do you think of the video below? We’d be interested to hear your thoughts so please send in those comments.
