Jensen shows HDMI 1080 Optimus 2X

Written by Fuad Abazovic


CES 2011: World's first Tegra 2 superphone
We just got introduced to LG Optimus 2X. old news if you ask us. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang and an LG VP showed the phone that they described as a beauty on the outside and monster inside.

Huang also showcased the phone's HDMI output, which enables you to easily connect it to a TV or monitor. He then demonstrated Angry Birds in full HD and of course you can also play 1080p movies.

Nvidia claims Optimus 2X has console gaming quality, 1080p support, HDMI as well an 8MB camera. LG thinks the design is great, they want you to fall in love with it. This was what the design team came up with, while technicians tinkered with the Tegra 2 platform and showed off what it can do. A game demonstration showed that the new phone is five times faster than previous generation phones based on single-core processors.

All in all it's a fast, good looking phone and it also supports Flash, unlike some devices that come to mind. We are expecting to see LG's new Optimus 2X in retail in several weeks and other vendors will also introduce dual-core phones soon.

So it can play a 30GB 1080p on a 4" 480x800px screen... wow! With the 2GB left people can just store SD porn, but unlikely to be enough.

Jen-Hsun Huang is a clown...

You must be new to the internets and have little knowledge of video file sizes.

First of all, the phone has HDMI output, so you can output that video to your TV.

Second, a 1080p movie is generally between 4-6GB's. It's merely that on Blu-Ray disc's the video has no real compression applied to it, so it's stored at a very large size.

Converting to H.264, with no loss in quality allows you to achieve a 1080p movie in the 4-6GB range.

And phones/tablets with 1080p screens aren't far off either.

4-6GB is 720P friend. 1080P starts around 8GB. Check out the bulk of scene releases.

your arguments is correct, if you completely ignore the bit rate of the blu-ray. your average blue ray movie at 20mbps starts at 10gb, however from my experiance most tend to be arround the 15-20gb mark.

Also, tegra 2 is well and good, as long as it has the battery.

@kak, what your saying is downright stupid!

HD video compression comprises of several algorithms, out of which VC1 is one of them, the same one that is used for BR media. The one you refer to for the 4GB file size, probably pirated media, is H.264 and that one requires a lot more processing for decoding than a mobile chip could achieve under the power constraints that it is.

Then you have to learn that right now there are no 1080p tablet screens, let alone phone screens... at most the iPad and Galaxy have under 720p, that number derives from the physical pixel count a screen has as its height, and is not coughed up from jhh's ass.

See how much someone you naively think of as a little-knower can teach you?

You get an D- for trying so hard.

And here we go with the hypocrasy lol. Firstly I'm quite well aware of the various widely used compression algorithm's for HD content. I've done a lot of video conversion work with VDUB and AVIDEMUX, I understand the formats.

And actually no, if you read a little bit more about Tegra, you'd learn it's been able to do H.264 decoding/playback since day one. 720p with the low end version and 1080p for the higher end.

I know damn well what 720p and 1080p mean. Don't try to patronize so much.

Also you must have misread the last line in my post, I never said there were phones and tablets out right now with 1080p screens. I said:
"And phones/tablets with 1080p screens aren't far off either."

And actually a lot of Blu-ray movies use H.264/AVC.

You can acheive lossless H.264 with a much lower bit-rate, in the average of 7-15Mb range. By using a more computationally intensive compression. The movie industry has a lot of room to work with on Blu-ray and encodes their movies in the quickest decodable way to support even the cheapest of BD players.
