"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."
