LG to offer dual-core Tegra 2 flavored Android in 2011 with 4 inch screen and 1080p video
LG plans on launching the first Android device with a dual-core CPU early next year. The handset is called the LG Star for the time being, and that name is expected to change before the phone is released. It is an Optimus branded device powered by a Tegra 2 processor and is expected to have a well-sized display measuring 4 inches, large enough for you to watch the videos you made in HD 1080p. A 1500mAh battery powers the model which will include a microSD slot to expand storage capacity

If you are a fan of Android just the way Google intended it to run, you'll be happy to know that the Google logo on the back means that the phone will run a practically unaltered version of the OS. Sounds like LG is aiming for the high end Android crowd with this model, which will no doubt face some tough competition when it is rolled out, presumably early next year.

Why does the Google logo on the back mean its going to be running an almost unaltered version of Android?? My old Droid Eris has a Google logo on the back and that certainly didn't come with an unaltered version of the OS.

Hopefully this phone doesn't powercycle constantly like most of LG's new line of phones. This phone almost looks like an oversized Touch Pro 2. I'll pass on LG smartphones for now.

I think because it doesn't say "Powered by Google" or "with Google", they insinuate it'll be stock Android. My girlfriend has the LG Ally and I don't believe it has any branding, not sure about other LG phones.

And in addition to previous comment, I can't imagine why companies would start to leak this stuff out right before the holidays. They're going to have to drastically slash prices to get early and mid-christmas sales out of it, because I'm certainly not wasting my $199.99 for a two-year contract on a single-core 2.2 Android if Gingerbread and dual-core nvidia processors are going to be out in like 2 months.

Too bad all LG makes is garbage. Regardless of how good the specs look, it'll be poorly constructed, and probably brick itself a week after the warranty period. I wouldn't bother.

In my experience, LG's cheap phones were always just that, cheap, flimsy, featureless, all around awful. But their high end phones were quite the opposite, being some of the best flip phones and multimedia phones put out.

I have to agree. I currently own the LG Envy Touch. Trash, complete fail, whatever you want to call it....it sucks.
