Celcom to offer LG Optimus 2X in Malaysia


Celcom has placed a simple teaser on its front page that they will be bringing in the LG Optimus 2X. No dates were given but if it is happening this month, Celcom is seriously jumping in front of the Android pack as being the first to offer a dual-core Android smart phone in Malaysia. Currently the other dual-core smart phone, Samsung Galaxy S II is slated to be released much later in May. Who knows, Samsung might revise their plans and offer the Galaxy II earlier?

The LG Optimus 2X is powered by a dual-core Tegra 2 processor and comes with a 4″ WVGA screen. It supports 1080p HD video recording with its 8MP camera and also comes with a dedicated HDMI port as well. When it was announced earlier, it was mentioned to be running on Android 2.2 with Android 2.3 Gingerbread expected to be roll out later. Let’s hope it will be running on Android 2.3 when it gets here.

So who will be the first to bring in dual-core Android? LG or Samsung? Another question would be what’s happening with Celcom’s iPhone 4 launch?
