The first word of availability regarding the LG Star has popped up, recently, as Korean outlet Cetizen reports the device will be available “sometime soon” for South Korea’s top cellular provider, SK Telecom. What’s more is that their version is a wee-bit different from the “prototype” we’ve seen in earlier pictures and videos.
For starters: this thing was certainly influenced by the Samsung Galaxy S. If LG’s custom user interface didn’t tip you off to as much, then the “plasticky” look of the outer-shell will. Even the set of buttons on the front mimic the “iPhone-wannabe” style that the Samsung Galaxy S i9000 introduced earlier this year.
And finally, it’s not Google branded. We’re not sure why considering the version we’ve seen is. Anywho, everything else is still the same: an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, HDMI port, a Tegra 2 processor, will run Android 2.2 (with a high chance of it seeing Gingerbread before too long) plus more. No pricing information to be had yet. [Cetizen via Unwired View]
