It has not been much time when LG Electronics faced a huge criticism and market decline from mobile handset market. Company was rubbed with some rough patches by customers, analyst and even by their own management. But in last couple of weeks, Apparently LG Electronics has turned around the wheel upside down and re-entered the market with much awaited LG Optimus range.
Recently, company has launched the Optimus One, an entry level Smartphone with Froyo (Android 2.2), specially to cater the mid segment mobile users. However, that’s is not going to be the end of the story as LG is gearing up to roar in upper class mobile handset market with “LG Star” to challenge Samsung GalaxyS, Nokia N8 and SE Xperia X10.

The upcoming handset is expected to bring back the charm towards LG handsets in mobile market as it holds some of the superior specification which is currently out of scope from any other mobile handset manufacturer. The LG Star is an Optimus branded device expected to be the first smartphone to run on a dual-core Tegra 2 processor and probably Android 2.3.

A 1500mAh battery powers the model which will include a microSD slot to expand storage capacity.
