LG Star, LG-P990: World’s First Tegra 2 Smartphone

GSM IsraelEngadget: The LG Star is the world’s first NVIDIA Tegra 2 smartphone sporting a large 4-inch LCD, an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, HDMI, and running on Android 2.2.

Some observations:

  • The touch response seems to be extremely fast.
  • The large 4-inch LCD might be of the IPS variety as the black levels were impressively dark with decent viewing angles.
  • There seems to be a pinkish tint to the LCD on the LG Star compared to the iPhone 4.
  • I’m not sure if the LG Star’s brightness setting was maxed out, but if it was then it didn’t seem as bright as that on the iPhone 4.

NVIDIA’s dual-core Tegra 2 chipset allows the LG Star to record video in 1080p!
