LG Optimus 2X rebadged as T-Mobile G2X

T-Mobile may have finally cemented plans to bring the LG Optimus 2X as sales reps have been given a leaked incentive sheet that gave it a final name. Much like the Optimus Pad has become the G-Slate, LG's dual-core Android phone would simply be called the T-Mobile G2X. TmoNews didn't glean any hardware differences, but the metal stripe on the back is unique to T-Mobile and has already been seen on the G-Slate.

If any changes are made, they're most likely to include faster 3G to use T-Mobile's HSPA+ network or to customize the preloaded apps. The Optimus 2X is one of the fastest phones available and has an NVIDIA Tegra 2 that can handle fast gaming and 1080p video. An eight-megapixel camera is on the back, and a front 1.3-megapixel camera gives it video chat and front livestreaming or photos.

No clues were given as to the ship date, but the mention of the G2X in a sales rep contest implied it was close enough to be available soon. The CTIA phone expo is due to start late this month and may serve as an opportunity for T-Mobile to show the LG smartphone and possibly narrow down a release window.
