LG Optimus 2X Coming to T-Mobile: Now named G2X

There has been a lot said about one of the first dual-core processor phones to be released, the LG Optimus 2X. This impressive handset has excited many people who are avidly awaiting its release in the U.S. and we have now heard that it looks very likely that it will be carried in the U.S. by T-Mobile and known as the T-Mobile G2X.

The LG Optimus 2X is an Android smartphone with a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 4-inch display and an 8-megapixel camera and we’ve already given readers a review, a comparison with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, and also included it in our roundup of some of the best LG phones. At the weekend we also took a good look at the performance levels of two of the new dual-core processor phones, the LG Optimus 2X and the Motorola Atrix 4G, as opposed to some single-core handsets, and if you’re interested in the Optimus 2X you’ll be pleased to know that it came out top in many of the tests.

Now our attention has been drawn to an article over on TmoNews which shows a leaked internal T-Mobile screen image of the T-Mobile G2X from LG, which Tmo tells is one and the same as the Optimus 2X. There are still no details of pricing and a release date but it can’t come soon enough for the many people eager to get a taste of a dual-core handset. You can also see a hands-on video at the TmoNews link above. Alex Dobie of Android Central also notes that so far there has not been any confirmation that the Optimus 2X or T-Mobile G2X will have HSPA+ support but feels, as we do, that that is more than probable.
