Phew, that's quite the headline. Engadget has once again scooped some shots of a forthcoming Android device, this time the oft-rumored LG Optimus dual-core device. While there are still a few specifics we'd like to know (like the screen resolution), there is plenty in this leak to get excited over:

  • 4.0" widescreen display. Unknown resolution at this point, but lest we forget, LG are responsible for the rather fantastic 960x640 panel in the iPhone 4
  • 8 MPx rear camera, capable of video capture up to 1920x1080. Front facing camera also included
  • Dual-core Cortex A9 CPU as part of the NVIDIA Tegra 2 system-on-chip
  • Stock Android (can I get a "Hell yeah!"?)
  • 1500 mAh battery to power your pocket rocket
  • Standard microUSB and microSD interface
  • LTE connectivity (indicated by a previous rumor)


This is all set to arrive early next year, with hints pointing towards LG's press event on January 5th before CES officially kicks off. While no specific operating system version is mentioned, Gingerbread certainly makes sense. Hopefully they'll have optimized the OS to run on dual-core processors by then.
