T-Mobile WILL Receive The LG G2X, Also Known As The Optimus 2X

Of all the emails I receive lately, one of the most common is, “Will T-Mobile carry the LG Optimus 2X?” As many times I’ve answered yes I often receive responses that are a combination of skepticism and doubt. Well doubt no more as the above image is concrete evidence from a very trusted source which shows that T-Mobile will in fact carry the LG Optimus 2X as the “G2X.” While we’re running short on details other than the above image, plenty of videos, specs and information can be found elsewhere on the site and interwebz to give you the lowdown on the Optimus 2X.

Check out Aaron’s hands on video below for a closer look at what to expect when this drops on T-Mobile. We’re digging into this with super speed hoping to find both pricing and a release date soon!

P.S. No word on what, if any kinds of 4G speeds this phone will have. I wouldn’t expect it to be 3G only though!

      This review was for the Euro Spec one not the one coming to TMO. It looks exactly the same but is Stock Vanilla Android 2.2 with a 2.3 update coming soon after release. That’s all the info I can say at this time.

      • whosaidwhat

        Are you sure it will have stock 2.2? That will be great. I haven’t heard anything about the 2x having stock android.

    Finally, confirmation on the Optimus 2x! That’s great news! Does the new “G2X” name, plus “with Google”, mean that this is going to be a pure Vanilla stock Android experience, with no LG overlay? That would be amazing, and better be the case or else T-Mobile is messing up the DNA of the “G” series. I also wonder how HTC feels about LG, with the G-Slate and now the G2X being a member of the “G” series…

    • Anonymous

      G series isn’t trademarked by HTC it should be under T-mobile trademark if I am not mistaken its the same way we have a sidekick made by Samsung and Motorola instead of I think sharp? and how we have Nexus phone made by HTC and Samsung…

    • whosaidwhat

      Like you, I would rather have a 4.3 inch display but since the 2x will probably come out before any 4.3 inch displays, I’ll just go for the 2x and sell it on flea-bay if a better phone comes out. What I really want is the pyramid or the S2.

      My G1 is starting to die a slow and painful death.

      • HTC Pyramid

        i’ve never owned a samsung phone and i am still using my nexus one…but yeah, i rate the pyramid just slightly ahead of the S2 based upon the rumored specs (accounting for both included and lacking features). also, no one is quite certain yet if t-mobile is even going to get the S2 (although i suspect they will) so it makes my decision even easier.

        • Anonymous

          Samsung is to T-Mobile what Motorola is to Verizon its no question that T-Mobile is gonna get it. To even question it is ridiculous the only question is when. Don’t rate phones for rumours you wait until its out then use it then rate it.

      I don’t know about that. It seems to me to be a tie-in with the Optimus Pad’s T-Mobile name, G-Slate. Now, the G-Slate is vanilla Honeycomb, but so far there’s no non-vanilla honeycomb. so that may not mean anything. I guess time will tell.

      Between the two, I’d wait on the Pyramid. The LG 2X has already recieved reviews of Meh. If the rumors of vanilla Android have any validity, that may fix a lot of the European version’s issues, but the Pyramid is still a complete unknown. I wouldn’t make a decision until both devices launch.

      • The “meh” reviews are largely because of the software. Don’t forget that Android 2.x has not yet been fully optimized for multi-core processing. When more of Android 3.0 is backported into Android 2.x, then we’ll see huge performance gains.

    If its skinned with LG’s ui though, doesn’t that kind of take away from the whole “G” series though, since up to now they’ve been the “pure” android experiance, or at least the purest you can get from a major telecom.

      Except The G2 is the Same phone as the Desire Z without Sense. I don’t find it unlikely that the G2X would be Vanilla and the Optimus 2X has LGs UI.

    I’m thinking this phone has to be right around the corner. It would be smart to advertise the G2X along with the G Slate Tablet sine they’re both LG products. You firgure the G Slate release has to be right around the corner to combat the release of the Ipad 2.

Lol i live in los angeles california so if anyone knows how is t-mobile coverage in La i wud really appreciate it. Or do u recommend at&t? Which one has better reception? And faster internet? Dnt get me wrong i luv verizon signal but its expensive and its 3g is not that fast. And i been wanting to either try t-mobile or at&t but im not sure if i shud switch cuz i heard t-mobile doesnt get good reception insidide buildingd does anyone kno if this i true?? Thanks

    • pooks

      T-mobile…… Att sucks in LA

    • T mobile tends to not get 3G inside brick buildings because the frequency band being at 2100Mhz is weaker than Verizon’s that’s why, happens to me at school in Lab buildings.. bleh.. but otherwise the service in the LA area is great and it’s fast.. I get 3.3mbps on my Cliq and that’s only 3G

      There was an article last year about what wireless provider had the best coverage in southern california.
      (cant find the article to link) These were the results…
      best.
      1.verizon
      2.tmobile
      3.sprint
      4.at&t

      I used to have verizon. Liked it alot. BUT too damn expensive. Switch to tmobile and havent regretted it at all. Verizon does have better building penetrating, but i would also drop calls/service in certain patches around the city (not many) with verizon.
      With tmobile i have never dropped a call. The worst that happens is that I get edge speeds in certain areas. Thats about it. When i get 3g/4g speeds its real fast.

      For me this phone isn’t a quantum leap over my Vibrant so it’s not even on my option list.

      Download speeds will be faster but thats with the right conditions.
      Similar UI (Unless TMO actually made this thing stock)
      Same 4″ screen size
      Hummingbird is no slouch if your phone is set up right.

      I personally say hold on to that Galaxy S(4G)?? Not knocking the G2x though.

    This is the replacement to my Nexus One. I want the Nvidia chip. I know the reviews say meth but thats for the software not the hardware. My plans are to root it anyway so i will be happy with my CM on the phone.

    • Folks on XDA seem to think the bootloader is locked down on this device, no CM for you ( or me ). I hope the unmentioned HTC device has ( as ) good hardware specs.

          cyanogenmod. Very popular custom android rom

        • remixfa

          there is no garuntee of CM on the phone with or without a locked bootloader. It is all up to the devs to buy the phone and root it. Heck, the ever popular galaxyS phones are just now getting some minor support. That said there are dozens of fantastic rom builders out there other than CM. CM is the “name brand” of rom builders now. My personal fav at the moment is Team Wiskey on my vibrant. They do incredible stuff.

          For the person earlier whining about not having a 4.3 inch screen, the galaxyS 2 is comming out shortly and its either a 4.3 or a 4.5 (cant remember). and really if your not going to buy a phone for 0.3 inches of horizontal real estate thats just stupid. the diff between 4.0 and 4.3 is negligable in real life.

          Not to argue but an EVO always seems huge whenever i grab one. My desire for the almighty 4.3″ screen is dying though since it’s been since the release of the first ever 4.3″ phone that I’ve been waiting for TMO to get one with Android. I’m just gonna get a Tablet now and hold this Vibrant through the year (maybe).

    This is great news Tmo! As for me, I got a gr8 deal so I went with the G2 and got it all rooted and ROM’d. I’m a happy camper. This is a sweet phone and will be a solid entry in the upper tier. But the quads are coming in Q4 so, the reign won’t be long. I must say that I was a bit disappointed at LG’s announcement that their other phones were guaranteed 1 upgrade. To make that statement says that they felt a need to do so – which gives me that old feeling of XT and Behold 2…which got left behind. These phones are too much of an investment to be DITW at six months. I’ll probably root from now on, its more cost effective and I’m certain to get my updates as long as the phone’s architecture and my ability to install ROM’s will allow.

  • Joelvictor

    This is it! I’ll get this one since I’m due for upgrade now. Hope it’s coming soon! Thanks Tmobile. Good job!

    Anything made by LG cannot be worthy of a “G” name. That G belongs to HTC, and having a “G2x” (must be better than the G2 but simmilar, right?) not made by HTC is just wrong. I am sure it will be a good phone. I am just 100% against the name.

  • I don’t think this belongs in T-Mobile’s
    ‘G” series of phones. I’m completely open to a non-HTC offering, but the “G” line has been the source for purist Android phones and lacks in two areas:

    – No Physical Keyboard
    – Not the “Google Experience” UI (The most egregious violation).

    Call it whatever you want, but likening it to the G1 and G2 is a bad decision to an otherwise solid-looking phone.

    • Anonymous

      Maybe thats why they calling it G2(x) hence the x and not G3. Maybe that will be the next G series phone with a Keyboard. Idk thats just what i think.

  • Anonymous

    Was the LG rep mis-informed when he agreed the display was 4.5″? Or is me thinking this whole time the 2X was 4″? Which I don’t have a problem with either. Two minor things I’m noticing with newer phones is the lack of a trackball. Idk if I speak for myself but I really miss that feature on the vibrant. Also led notification. Does the 2X have led notification?

  • optimusprime

    They call it G2x because it will run vanilla android not the lg UI and the G lines runs on vanilla so I think it will have the vanilla UI just like what they did on the G2 and desire Z.

    But yea no matter what UI I’m getting this phone. And this phone has a 4.0 inch screen not 4.5..

    • Anonymous

      Vanilla would be a huge bonus for LG as well as T-Mobile since we get the Vanilla phones.

    • kuni

      Vanilla Android on this phone is wishful speculation. The phone has been announced with an LG skin (soundly criticized by Engadget in their Feb 7 review of the 2X) and it makes little sense for a mfr to have two software versions of the same phone floating around. No precedent for that which I can recall.

      Also note the 2X was announced with froyo (2.2) not gingerbread (2.3). Vanilla would surely be the latest version, no?

      I hope we get the Samsung Galaxy S II, but given the Galaxy S 4G launch, I’m doubting that will happen.

      • Hellbunny

        Not saying G2X will run vanilla android but there is at least one precedent, and it is an very obvious one: G2 vs Desire Z.

        EFFF THE THUNDERBOLT AND VERIZON AND ALSO ATNT WITH THEIR ATRIX. lol

  • Mr. Strat

    This is the one I’ve been waiting for. I’ve been off contract for a few months, and the ol’ G1 is about to give up the ghost.

    • We’re in the same boat. Hoping it’s released this month and drops mid month, not at the end.

    I just sold my nexus S, I had about 4 other smart phones before that and i hate how batteries cant handle the phones these days. For all this 2X aka G2X can do, you will have to charge the phone 3 times a day.
    I went back to my blackberry because I love not having to charge my phone for 3 days.

    • beastly

      Yeah, I hear that. My Defy actually holds battery pretty well, though. 1550 mAh, and the processor and screen don’t suck juice the way HTC phones do.

    • Did you at least get a full day of usage from your Nexus S? because I was considering getting one. I don’t need more than 1 day of usage out of the device, just 1 full day with moderate usage with HSPA left on.

      • Emma

        I work for T-Mobile… I’ve had the mytouch 4g, the samsung vibrant, the htc g2 and i can tell you the batt life on the Nexus S is the best out of all these phones by far!

        • Thanks! That’s all I needed to know. I really appreciate it.

        • Anonymous

          My bad I forgot to tell you how my battery is I get a full days use and few hours into the next day on a overnight charge I use my phone’s GPS and search a handful of sites and I’m not running a CR nor am I using an optional home screen or many other things that take a huge toll on my battery oh and I use the facebook app a lot

        • That’s great. Thanks. I’m slowly narrowing down my choices. The Nokia C7 just made it into my list though. I’m really leaning towards the Nexus S, but I kind of like manufacturer OS overlays. This T-Mobile Optimus G2X looks really good, but I’m interested in the battery life since it has a dual core processor & all. I would love the Sidekick 4G (would love a flash on the camera, thought about using phlash) & as much as I love keyboards I think I can do without with all the touchphone alternative keyboard options & I like the long slightly wide touchscreen smartphone build. I want FFC,great battery life (at least a full day of moderate usage) flash on the camera, smartphone, high-end or very good mid-high end, & plenty of relevant apps.

          I noticed better battery life on my Nexus One after installing Gingerbread on it. That may or may not have something to do with the Nexus S having better battery life over those Froyo phones.

    Maybe they put the G in front of 2X because its accompanying the G slate, not because its from the Tmo G line.

    • and the G slate is in the G line also……
      G line devices are always real good devices with stock android on them
      G1 = first android phone (stock 1.5)
      G2 = first 4G phone on t-mobile (stock 2.2)
      G2x = first dual core phone on t-mobile (stock 2.2 or 2.3)
      G-slate = First tablet with Honeycomb on t-mobile (stock 3.0)

    i wonder if g2x is coming in march and if pyramid is coming in may? does anyone have a comparison between the 2?

    • The guy (Taylor) from androidandme.com knows stuff about the pyramid… im guessing not alot from his comment.
      “Pyramid is in testing and I know people in the US who have the phone. I expect it will be revealed at CTIA, but don’t expect it to launch until the summer.”

    • Nardva

      I’m pretty sure the G2X drops this month. You figure the G Slate will drop this month and they will push both products from LG. I’m thinking the Pyramid doesn’t drop until the 2nd half of the year. July probably the earliest.

      Tmobile always gives well in advance notice complete with sign up sheets for these kind of phones so I can’t see a March release IMO.

  • Anonymous

    I am thrilled. This phone will be a big seller for T-Mobile. I would bet many new customers would sign-up for the ability to use this phone on a fast network. I can hardly wait. Currently own a Nexus One (still #1) and the MyTouch 4G. I would buy this phone in a heart beat. Please T-Mobile bring this baby to us right away.

    Hey T-Mobile Workers,

    International Students can currently display their “Qualifying Visa” (F-1 or J-1) and receive 2 lines of Postpaid service from my understanding. Will this still be true, or will they be required to pay a deposit starting March 13?

      These ads are usually made 3 weeks prior to them coming out. My guess would be the last week of March.

  • Bizzy

    I think too many people are getting hung up on the name of the phone. They could call it the LG Smart for all we should care. There isn’t a ‘set’ G series for T-Mobile. The fact of the matter is that it’s produced by LG, so it will run LG’s UI. Couple that with some solid specs, and you have a winner in my book.

    • but since its apart of the G series
      it has to be stock android!
      even the “Nexus” series is stock!

    Some sources say this phone is coming to T-Mobile in April. That’s accurate, IMHO, because T-Mobile is in a hurry to get as many 4G phones in its lineup, immediately, if not sooner.

    Having lots of 4G superphones complements T-Mobile pushing 4G in ads and TV commercials. As I said before, T-Mobile wants to give the customer the widest selection of 4G phones when they walk into the stores, after seeing ads trumpeting video calling or “the largest 4G network.”

    I would not be surprised to see some commercials quite soon saying “T-Mobile – the largest 4G network and widest selection of 4G phones.”

        LOL… you do realize I was talking about commercials and advertising not who actually has how many and the most devices.

        To be sure, I can’t comment on that because I do not know all the 4G devices that each carrier has.

        Why don’t you post those numbers (4G device name and carrier) as it would be interesting to compare.

        Lastly, regardless of how many devices T-Mobile has, I still submit that T-Mobile wants to load up its 4G selection, so to give the customers the widest choice and to complement its 4G ad campaign.

        Oh, in terms of “fastest 4G devices” I am not sure even T-Mobile would agree with you, as evident that I am not seeing ads by T-Mobile claiming it has the fastest 4G devices. I suspect that even T-Mobile would think that claim is going to far.

        Remember, what you call “fastest 4G devices” are actually fast 3.5 G devices. Recall that in summer 2010 T-Mobile was calling its CURRENT 4G network “the fastest 3G network.” I opined that T-Mobile marketing and management realized that it was going nowhere fast with the term HSPA+ and it having the fastest 3G network.

        So T-Mobile in November 2010 pulled a fast one (in light of the ITU agreeing with U.S. carriers that “4G” is a generic term and simply means faster than 3G). T-Mobile simply changed “the fastest 3G network” to “the largest 4G network in the U.S.” Note that T-Mobile did NOT claim, as you say, it had the “the fastest 4G network” (by logical extension network claims applies to handset performance).

    • LC

      It would have to be coming out end of March/early April because the shot in the article is a sales competition they have going on for the sales associates…Can’t give them a phone if it’s not close to being released. Obviously giving it away a month or two before release is one thing, but you can’t be saying they’ll win this phone and not have it be released until Q3/Q4, ya know? I’m picturing a kind of bundled release of the LG G-Slate with the Optimus 2X/G2X. It would make sense as stepping stones if you will in the same “line” of devices.

  • I guess I’m the only one who loves the manufacturer skin overlays than just pure Android. The only plus with pure Android Vanilla is the fact you’ll get updates quicker. But, pure Android is boring to me. I loved the customized HTC sense they put on the MyTouch 4G

    • Anonymous

      Actually false with stock Android the device runs a lot smoother than anything with a skin I will admit that expression sense is great but its nice to not have to worry about lots of lag although from what I hear mt4g is among the few skinned androids that doesn’t have much lag

      • Anonymous

        It runs like a champ. After getting over the screen swipe transition animation I realized that its pretty fast and responsive. BUT that MT4G battery is horrible.

      • That too depending on the processor, but that doesn’t mean that anything I said is a false, I just left something out.

    • optimusprime

      Well sense is ugly to us! Not just me but US. Sense eats battery alot! And also so much lag like forreal! Lag! So don’t mess with vanilla roids.

      • How can you speak for the whole US? You’re just 1 person, & was it that necessary for you to use exclamation marks? We’re not in a huge case or debate, & you’re not a defense attorney pleading your clients case to make a 6 figure salary, so what’s the excitement use of this “!”? & once again, my opinion. That was all.

      I much prefer Touch Wiz’s added feature over vanilla and I agree the updates are the only real bonus. If every UI got timely updates along with stock Android then I bet ppl would dump all over Vanilla.

      They just use the game as an example in the hands on video to show the increased speed of the phone with the dual core processor, but it will do more than just allow you to play multi player games more conveniently.

      This is going to be such an amazing device. LG has quite the little line up going with T-Mobile between the 2X/G2X and the G-Slate.

    CTIA Wireless takes place in a couple of weeks on March 22-24, so you can bet that all the carriers will be announcing their new lineup of Android phones. I expect that T-Mobile will announce the G2x and it should go on sale several weeks later.
