LG unveils the Optimus Q2, QWERTY slider with refreshed 1.2 GHz Tegra 2 processor


Want a QWERTY slider with decent specs? This just may be the device you’re looking for. Yesterday LG unveiled the brand new LG Optimus Q2. While those wanting high-end devices may overlook the LG Optimus series (mainly due to the fame; there are better Optimus devices now), this one is really looking like a great option and definitely deserves some consideration.

One feature that really stands out is the device’s Tegra 2 processor. This is no regular NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, though. This CPU is actually clocked at 1.2 GHz, something that’s not typical forĀ Tegra 2 devices. (They’re usually clocked at 1 GHz). This should definitely make the UI, as well as gaming, much smoother.

It's a refreshed part with faster memory, graphics and CPU--all working in concert to boost perf by 30%.Anonymous

The higher clock speeds are nice, but there seems to be a bit more than that to this Tegra 2 processor. As the anonymous source confirms, this is actually a newly introduced Tegra 2 processor that should perform better than past versions.

Aside from the processor, the Optimus Q2 comes with all the specs you can expect from devices these days. The Optimus Q2 sports Android 2.3 Gignerbread, a 4-inch WVGA display with IPS, a 5 MP rear-facing camera and a VGA front-facing camera. The device also features a bigger keyboard than its predecessor. That device was not only smaller (3.5-inch screen), but the keyboard also included a D-Pad that took up a large portion of they keyboard space.

This device may have some of you excited, but sadly, it won’t be available to most of us yet. The LG Optimus Q2 is scheduled for release next week… in South Korea. As for the rest of us, we’ll have to wait until the device comes to other parts of the world. We’d assume it will be coming to most major markets. Let’s just hope they don’t take too long. We all know how delays affect our expectations.

Overall it looks like a great device, and we surely hope the US (as well as everyone else) gets a taste of it. Would any of you like one of these? Can root users let us know how well devices perform when overclocked to 1.2 GHz? If you do happen to be in Korea, will you be getting this bad boy? Would anyone be willing to import it?
