Engadget was lent a testing version of the LG Star that was revealed recently by an anonymous tipster, and they managed to do a fairly in-depth hands-on of the device. The testing unit of the LG Star they received has Android 2.2 with a skin from LG installed, but everything software-wise is not finished. Also, the tipster indicated that Android 2.3 may come installed on the handsets at launch.
In benchmark testing, the device soars, thanks to the dual-core Tegra 2 processor and Android 2.2. Unfortunately, features such as video playback and were not able to be tested due to software issues stemming from the nature of the leaked handset.
Some specs that have been confirmed for the device include a 4" 800 x 480 LCD display, 8MP camera, microUSB port at the bottom, 3.5mm audio jack and HDMI port at the top, and a single "loud and punchy" speaker at the bottom, accompanied by what appears to be the microphone grill.
Engadget believe this device to be one of the "highlight devices" for next year, unless next year's devices will all be like this. Head on over to the source link to see plenty more photos of the LG Star, and videos of it.
