LG Turning to Tegra 2 for New Smartphones

Paul Lilly

The future of smartphones is looking bright, at least if you use these devices for more than just making calls. While today's top-end units sport 1GHz Snapdragon and Hummingbird processors, LG is stepping up the smartphone game by readying new models built around Nvidia's dual-core Tegra 2 platform.

Let that sink in for a moment. We're talking about smartphones with two processing cores as well as an ultra low-power Nvidia GeForce GPU.

"Taking full advantage of the two speedy 1GHz processors sharing the workload in Tegra 2, consumers can experience up to 2x faster web browsing and up to 5x faster gaming performance over single core processors running at 1GHz," LG says (PDF).

LG didn't mention how much these next-gen units will cost, but did say they'll be part of its Optimus series and ship in the fourth quarter.
