T-Mobile briefly posted some additional details about the upcoming T-Mobile G2 on its website, but has since removed the page. Still, the carrier moved too slowly to prevent the information for getting out,
It’s now confirmed that his smartphone is going to run Android OS 2.2 — which shouldn’t surprise anyone, as this is the current version of Google’s mobile operating system.
T-Mobile also inadvertently revealed that this smartphone is going to be based on an 800 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which uses this chip-maker’s Scorpion core.
Last month, this carrier pre-announced the G2, but gave almost no details on it. All that T-Mobile has officially said so far is that the G2 will be the follow-up to the original device running Google’s mobile operating system, and that it will support HSPA+, which means it will will be able to wirelessly transfer data fast enough to rival or surpass current 4G networks.
What the Rumors Say
Unconfirmed reports indicate that this smartphone will have a 3.7-inch, WVGA touchscreen, an optical touchpad, and a sliding keyboard.
Like its predecessor, the T-Mobile G1, this model will be produced by HTC, but the official images of it that leaked out do not show it running HTC Sense, this company’s user interface that enhances Google’s standard one.
All the other specifications are equally unknown, like storage capacity, camera resolution, etc.
Pricing and Availability
According to several unconfirmed reports, the T-Mobile G2 will launch on September 29.
Information leaking out of this carrier indicates that this model is going to cost $200 with contract, like most high-end models released in recent years. Without a contract is will supposedly sell for $500.
