LG has showcased a new Android smartphone that is already being touted as the fastest handset yet to run Google’s OS and which apparently also outpaces Apple’s iPhone.

Clips of the LG LU3000, which was unveiled at the KES2010 electronics expo, show it comfortably speeding ahead of both handsets for launching apps and initiating web searches.
And it seems to do it all on what’s a pretty standard spec sheet. Although unconfirmed, it is thought that the handset packs a 1GHz OMAP 3630 processor, putting it on an equal footing with the currently available top of the range smarties.
Also reportedly on board is a five-megapixel snapper with autofocus, and a WVGA screen measuring 3.8-inches across. Somewhat surprisingly, it’s set to ship with Android 2.2 under the hood, rather than the forthcoming 2.3 and 3.0 iterations of the operating system.
According to Akihabara LG has no plans to release the LU3000 outside its native South Korean market.
