LG Star makes promising first showing in benchmarks

14 December 2010 - 09:51:13

David Wright

The next generation Android-based LG Star smartphone has undergone some rigorous testing and proved that it will be able to blow the current generation of handsets away when it comes to raw processing power.

What makes the LG Star a step above the rest is its dual core Tegra 2 processor from graphics chip manufacturer Nvidia. This gives it two physical processing cores, allowing it to tackle multiple tasks simultaneously, without breaking a sweat or even grapple with much more advanced graphics in games and apps.

Tech site Engadget managed to put the LG Star under the microscope and reveal that although the display is not based on the much-lauded AMOLED technology, it does appear to be a superior version of traditional LCD components.

Using benchmarking software the testers were able to rank the handset against its contemporaries like the Nexus One and Samsung Galaxy S and it managed to more than double the score attained by these rivals. This is perhaps to expected when the processing core count is doubled, but it is good to see this theory borne out in hard facts.

The dual core processor will be put to work in a variety of ways. Unfortunately, the test model used in the benchmarking was not able to play any type of video file, which mean the experts were unable to check up on rumours which suggest that the LG Star will be able to handle Full HD video, although it definitely has the hardware to allow this unique feature.

All eyes will be on the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas early next year, as the LG Star and a host of other upcoming smartphones are expected to get a full showcase before the eager eyes of the world's media.
