First dual-core Android phone

First dual-core Android phone


When LG first announced their Optimus line of Android phones, two things came to everyone’s mind: one, the name ‘Optimus’ surely sounds cool, the phones will be bestsellers for sure. Two, names don’t sell, what will LG give to back up the good name! Recently, LG just showed what all they plan to give, apart from a great sounding name. A dual-core phone!

Don’t adjust your monitors, you read that right. Apart from being the world’s first dual-core Android phone, this particular handset also may very well bring nVidia’s Tegra 2 into the smartphone arena. Though the phone is rumored to be codenamed ‘Star’, the final name (and many other things) of the phone are still undecided. The back cover of the phone spots a mammoth Google logo. What this means is that most probably, the phone shall have an untouched representation of the Android OS (though the version is still unknown). The phone also has a front camera and a 1500 mAH battery. The main camera is 8 MP capable of video recording at 1080p. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
