Here is a video of the LG Optimus 2X perhaps also known as the LG Star (SU660). Alledgely set for the Korean market, the video above displays this device working with HDMI the way phones should work with HDMI. It’s seamless, smooth and works rather well. This device looks very similar to the LG Star that we have already given some read-time too. The difference allegedly being that the LG Optimus 2X is a dual-core equivalent. In a video presented after the break, we get to see the Optimus 2X apparently wipe the floor with the Samsung Galaxy S. Of course, eventually there always had to be a new phone that drastically out-performed the Galaxy S, but to see it so soon is a rather surprise encounter.

Although I am not familiar with this particular benchmarking test, the difference in performance as shown by the video is most likely due to the dual-core nature of the Optimus 2X. Either way, it certainly casts an interesting foreshadow of what is to come from these dual-core devices. Remember, in theory they will be much less power intensive too.
