Fasten your seat belts for the faster and smarter smartphones that would go dual core in year 2011.
LG Star would be the first android phone with Nvidia Tegra2 dual core processor clocked at 1Ghz x 2. The UI on this phone is much like the Samsung Galaxy S, but the most interesting part of this phone is its dual-core processor.
GSM Israel has got the first handson video for the LGP990 (aka the Star) compared side-by-side with an iPhone 4.
The handset is powered by a 4-inch display and 8MP camera, as well as a front-facing counterpart and an HDMI port. At this time its running on a non-optimized Android Froyo, and is expected to improve speeds with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which would be optimized for dual core Tegra2 processors.
Nvidia Tegra 2 offers full support for real-time run Full HD 1080p encoding, In terms of build quality, its sturdy, combines elements of plastics and metal.
The screen is very bright and very high quality and even though it (apparently) is not a Super AMOLED or SLCD.
Despite running non-optimized Froyo 2.2, it is still very fast relative to all other Android device we’ve seen and iPhone 4 at everything. It performs equally well vs. iPhone 4 even when Flash is turned ON. Now that’s a big thing. With Gingerbread, native support for Dual core Tegra2 will be embedded into the kernel, and hence make the dual core phones perform much faster than iPhone 4 or any other device in the market.
