Handset pictured with packaging, branding
LG is reportedly ready to ship its Optimus 2X handset through the Canadian wireless carrier Wind Mobile. Leaked images posted on MobileSyrup show the Android 2.2-based device with Wind branding on the startup screen and packaging. Unnamed sources suggest the launch is scheduled for the next few days, however a specific date and pricing information remain unclear.
The 2X is one of the first phones that arrived with NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 processor, which enables 1080p playback via HDMI. The device also offers a four-inch display with 800x480 resolution, dual cameras, DLNA support, and 8GB of internal storage.
Customers located in select European and Asian markets can already purchase the Optimus 2X, which began shipping in Korea early this year.
