The LG Optimus Black was announced for international carriers earlier this year. At that time LG said it would also bring the device to the US but didn’t specify which carrier. Friday, Pocketnow and Unwiredview reported that the LG Optimus Black is headed to no less than 4 US carriers. Sprint, Virgin Mobile, US Cellular and Alltel will all receive the LG Optimus Black.
As a refresher the Android phone features Android 2.2 out of the gate with an upcoming upgrade to Android 2.3, Gingerbread, 4″ touch screen, 5mp rear facing camera, 2mp front facing camera, 1Ghz OMAP processor by TI, and 512mb of RAM.
What’s a little odd is that demos of the LG Optimus Black were shipped with GSM so we naturally thought it would be headed to T-Mobile and AT&T. Obviously somewhere along the line a CDMA version was produced.
There’s no release date or pricing available just yet but as soon as we hear, we’ll let you know.
