LG to launch Android phone with dual-core Tegra 2 and 1080p video in early 2011
We have heard about the 1.2GHz dual core processors coming out in Q1 next year, we have also heard about the Tegra-2 GPU running phones coming out next year. LG had promised a phone with tegra-2 GPU with dual core processor, a new leak from LG’s desk shows that such a smart phone is around the corner.
I would like to tell you before reading further that this is just a rumour and this phone has not been announced officially yet. The smart phone goes by the code name of ‘STAR’ which may be changed during the release time or official launch. The LG star is rumored to have the dual-core Cortex A9 CPU (CPU frequencty is unknown but A9 usually is 1GHz) coupled with the Tegra-2 GPU which can encode and decode HD videos quite easily. The LG star has an 8 mega pixel camera and full HD recording with 1080p. The LG star will be running android OS and you can also see Google written on the back of the phone, which pumps the heart of every android geek. The OS will have minimum customization so that the upgradation can be a lot more faster and easier.
The LG star also has a front facing camera, MicroSD card slot, MicroUSB port and 1500mAh battery. The Tegra-2 GPU offers double the performance of the older 1st generation GPUs,but it is shipped as ultra-low powered. How the processor and the GPU affects the battery is also of great importance.
Well the next year will be the battle of the Dual Cores, are you ready for it? Who will gain,and who will loose, we will also be seeing the 1.2GHz and 1.5GHz processors. The eventful year awaits.
