The dual-core Tegra 2 LG Optimus 2X smartphone powerhouse has just been given a January release date, ending speculation that the phone would only be a treat for those living in the Korean manufacturers homeland.
“The exclusive music will be preloaded on LG smartphones starting with the LG Optimus 2X set to debut next month in Europe,” said LG’s official press release.
With an estimated selling price of around £470, it’s a pricey but powerful handset, running Android 2.2 on a 4 inch touchscreen.
It may also be the most tuneful smartphone out next year too, as LG have bizarrely bagged lengendary spaghetti western composer Ennio Morricone to write some ringtones for the phone.
“LG smartphone users will be able to enjoy a total of 25 of Morricone’s creations — 15 ringtones composed specifically for LG and 10 of his best-known tunes from the world of cinema,” explained LG.
“Signore Morricone is one of the best-loved soundtrack composers of all time,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Reproducing his work with such amazing clarity on the Optimus 2X, gives smartphones a whole new level of respect as the primary device for on-the-go music.”
