T-Mobile G2 to be released on January 26th?

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:10PM EST

Yeah, we’re going to have to go ahead and file this one pretty low on the rumor totem pole, but supposedly T-Mobile is planning to release its second Android-powered handset just over a month from now. According to a leaked document from an anonymous CellPhone Signal tipster, the G1 sequel will be released on January 26th and will be dubbed, you guessed it, the G2. While the manufacturer isn’t specified, if it is real we have to assume HTC will be responsible for having nailed it together. As for specs, it’s no slouch:

  • Android OS
  • 3G, EDGE, GPRS and WiFi
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Touchscreen
  • Enterprise Capable
  • 5 Megapixel camera with auto-focus and flash
  • Secondary front-facing VGA camera
  • Memory card Slot (up to 16GB)
  • Mobile Backup
  • Music and Video Player
  • Picture Messaging
  • Real web browsing
  • Speakerphone
  • PC sync
  • USB interface
  • Video capture and playback
  • Video Messaging
  • Voice Dialing
  • myFaves capable and T-Zones (web2go)

Wow. If it’s real it should be quite an upgrade from the G1, though we worry that there is no mention of a physical keyboard on the document. Of particular note is the presence of a front-facing camera; apparently T-Mobile will also be launching a video calling service towards the end of January and the G2 will be one of T-Mobile’s first video call-capable devices. Yay, the service everyone talks about but no one uses! We’ll keep our collective ear to the ground with the hope that more solid info will come to light soon.
