"More photos have been posted of an "LG Star," rumored to be the
first Android smartphone to offer a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2
processor. Meanwhile, a more imminent LG Androider called the
LU3000 has been tipped in South Korea, and the FCC has posted
details on two Samsung Android phones, one of which appears to be
the rumored Nexus S.
"LG Electronics' LG Star was first tipped two weeks ago by
Engadget, which suggested it would be the first smartphone to run
on Nvidia's Tegra 2 dual-core processor when it ships in early
2011. Based on dual ARM Cortex-A9 cores, the Tegra 2 is generally
clocked to 1GHz. The Optimus-branded phone will offer an
eight-megapixel camera, microSD expansion, and a 1500mAh battery,
and support 1080p video recording, said Engadget.
"Now Phandroid has published some new photos of the Star showing
the device actually running Android -- or more specifically Android
2.2. The photos also point to another uncovered feature: an HDMI
port, shown below."
