Take a look at LG‘s current Android offerings. Now take a look at the “Star.” LG is about to get serious. Finally unveiled in leaked picture form today, the LG Star, or so it’s being internally called, is a monster: NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GHz dual-core processor, 8MP camera with LED flash, 1080p video capture, front facing camera, and 1500 mAh battery. The Star is also rumored to come with a “nearly” stock version of Android on board, hence the big metal Google logo gracing the back of the device.
According to AndroidAndMe, the Star is not headed to Verizon like earlier rumors may have suggested, but is instead T-Mobile bound by Q1 2011. Engadget has the Star pegged as the first dual-core device to hit retail shelves, but as Taylor Wimberly points out, the Motorola Olympus and Nexus S could both sport dual-cores, and both land first.
What’ll be really interesting isn’t who comes to market first, but how Samsung’s dual-core Orion will stack up against NVIDIA’s Tegra 2. What do you guys think? Nexus S, Star, Olympus, or HTC holdout (which is, by the way, not a codename of any sort)?
