Rumor: LG Star Android Phone Has Dual-core CPU, 1080p Video

LG promised a dual-core smartphone with Tegra 2 - and a recent leak shows that such a phone is closer to completion than you might have thought. It runs Android, records 1080p video with an 8MP capturing camera and it looks like the smartphone of our dreams.

It's just at the rumor stage correct now, so these dreams might not come true. Anyway, this recent LG, which goes by the codename of Star for now, packs impressive computing power - a dual-core Cortex A9 Central Processing Units (CPU) of yet unknown frequency (but A9 maxes out at 1GHz) and NVIDIA Tegra 2, which encodes and decodes Full HD videos for breakfast. As an fascinating side note, the LG Optimus Pad tablet is also assumed to be powered by the Tegra 2 platform.

Rumor has it, LG Star is a dual-core droid with Full HD video recording

The LG Star has an 8MP capturing camera that will be able to record video in Full HD resolution. The other thing on the phone's back, the Google logo, is a joy for Android fans. Reportedly, the Operating System (OS) will have minimal customizations so the software upgrade path seems clear.

The LG Star (a codename that will change by launch time) also features a video call camera, microSD card slot, microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) port and a 1500mAh battery.

The Tegra 2 GPU offers double the performance of the 1st generation but is marketed as Ultra-low power. How it and a dual-core Central Processing Units (CPU) will affect the battery, we'll have to wait to find out.

Early next year is the reported timeframe for the LG Star launch. Next year, we're expecting mobile Central Processing Units (CPU) speeds to reach 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) and now dual-core processors too - we can't wait.

Note that an earlier leak of the same phone had a slightly different looking hardware (supposedly an earlier beta) and was branded by Verizon. This one comes without a brand, so we it's possible we'll see both a CDirect Memory Access (DMA) and a Global System for Mobile communication (GSM) version.
