Straight Talk getting LG Optimus 2X

It appears as though Straight Talk is gearing up for another Android handset release. This one will be the LG Optimus 2X, and it comes with a little twist. It will actually have an LTE radio, so it will be a rare prepaid Android smartphone running on a 4G network. According to PhoneNews.com, it will run on AT&T’s LTE network. The phone itself isn’t particularly high end in terms of new Android handsets, but it’s near the top of the prepaid food chain: 1GHz processor, 800×480 display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080 video capture, and a front-facing camera. The big thing, of course, will be the LTE data on Straight Talk’s $45 plan. There is no word on pricing or availability, but as usual you can sign up to reserve your copy.
