Pictures of LG P990 Super Smartphone Surface

Several snaps of the LG P990, the first Android-based smartphone capable of competing with the Sony Ericsson X10 or the HTC Desire HD, have appeared online.

The pictures, which can be found on Androidforums.com, show the LG Optimus Star in full details; from what we know it will come with a WVGA capacitive touchscreen and like the Advent Vega, will come with the Nvidia Tegra 2 processor which is a dual core model.

It doesn't come with a kick stand on the back to be used as a photo frame but it should come with Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread), a HDMI port, an eight-megapixel camera with flash, microSD support, the possibility to record full HD videos and a front facing camera.

An early benchmark result (Quadrant) shows that it is significantly faster than the Motorola Droid, the Galaxy S or the Nexus One and the gap is likely to grow even more as the final version is shipped to the market in the first quarter of 2011.
