The LG Optimus Black may finally make its way to the United States this fall, according to a leaked internal roadmap obtained by BriefMobile.

The Optimus Black packs a 4-inch 800 x 480-pixel resolution NOVA screen, a 1GHz single-core processor, a 5-megapixel camera, and more. Read on for the leaked roadmap image.
