Those who are itching for more details on LG’s recently revealed dual-core processor smartphone, the Optimus 2X, may be getting their fix as the rumors begin to spill out.
Sources have suggested that T-Mobile will be the U.S. carrier for the “superphone,” as some are calling it. This doesn’t rule out the possibility of other carriers providing the phone however, as the current Optimus Android models are offered by not only T-Mobile, but Sprint and U.S. Cellular as well.
It also turns out that those interested may not have to wait long for the Optimus 2X, despite the absence of a stateside release date in LG’s initial announcement of the phone. RCR Wireless has reported that sources in South Korea, where LG is based, have supposedly pegged March as a release date for the powerful smartphone in the United States.
The Optimus 2X — which will run Google’s Android OS 2.2 and will be upgradeable to Android OS 2.3 — will sport a 1 GHz, dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, as well as a 4-inch WVGA touchscreen, an 8 GB removable microSD memory card, and a 1,500 mAh battery.
The phone will also feature video conferencing capabilities, as it is equipped with both a rear-facing and front-facing camera.
