South Koreans just got their version of the LG Star officially announced. Dubbed LG SU660 Optimus 2X, the smartphone made its first official appearance on the Asian shores, but the even better news is that its worldwide availability is fast approaching.

Unfortunately LG kept their tradition and revealed next to none of the new handsets's specifications (not to mention the lack of an official photo). Good thing a preview surfaced the other day and did the job for them.

We did stumble upon a new video though, which showcases the Optimus 2X computing prowess. In case you’ve been wondering how much of an improvement the dual-core Tegra is over the current best CPUs, you should definitely check it out. The Hummingbird-powered Galaxy S gets a trashing it won’t be forgetting anytime soon. While one synthetic benchmark is not necessary too meaningful for the real-life performance, the SU660 Optimus 2X certainly possesses impressive computing skills.

LG had a pretty quiet 2010, but could it produce the smartphone to get in 2011? The good news is that LG Benelux has got itself a new domain - the LGOptimus2X.nl, so an European announcement might not be too far away.
