If your Hebrew is up to date, you might be able to understand what the reviewer is saying about the LG Star in this video. Considering that this is the first dual-core handset, with its Tegra 2 processor, we felt that even if you couldn’t understand the audio, you could still get an eyeful of the video and catch the speed of the device for yourself.
GSM Israel got their hands on the unannounced device (model LGP990) and have given it some serious video treatment. Front-facing and rear 8MP cameras? Check. HDMI out? Check. LG’s custom UI? . It’s running Android 2.2 Froyo — not Gingerbread, but that’s not much of a surprise because we’re all waiting on Gingerbread.
After a tour of the model, we get an appearance by the Apple iPhone 4 to compare webpage load times. In the one head-to head test on the video, it looked like it might have been a photo finish with the iPhone the winner by a fraction of a second. On the other hand, where the latter device has empty space, the LG Star browser shows flash animation.
While the 4 inch display of the LG model is currently showing you Android 2.2, most likely we will see Android 2.3 on the device when the phone is launched early next year as we reported.
