Finally…a dual-core Android phone for T-Mobile USA? TmoNews is reporting a leaked document that clearly showcases a picture of the T-Mobile G2X, which would be a rebrand of the LG Optimus 2X. Other than the picture of the device and logo, there is no other information given.

As expected, T-Mobile expands their Android roster today with the Galaxy S 4G. The obvious successor to the Vibrant, it features nearly identical hardware. While it won’t sway many current Android owners, it should attract those looking to leave behind a feature phone.
