Engadget’s just uncovered a beast of an LG phone – internally being called the LG Star – and its specs do not fail to impress. It’ll supposedly be equipped with NVIDIA’s dual-core Tegra 2 chipset, will have an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen, and stock Android (though no version was discussed.) There also looks to be a front-facing camera packed into the front of this thing. Engadget has all of the tasty spy shots of this thing right here. I think 2011 will be a very good time for Android fans if this early peek of what’s to come is anything to go by.
