Sprint's unannounced LG Marquee is a LG Optimus Black doppleganger
A video montage from a Radio Shack Business Summit in Dallas a couple of weeks ago shows a handset called the LG Marquee. What makes it interesting is that the buttons on the left side of the bezel (volume rocker and "G" button) resemble the ones on the LG Optimus Black, which could indicate that a CDMA version of the phone is coming soon to Sprint.

A CDMA flavored LG Optimus Black is expected to launch this month for U.S. Cellular as we reported, and there has been speculation about an LG Optimus B for Sprint. In the meantime, check out the video of the LG Marquee and compare the buttons to the ones on the LG Optimus Black.

If the LG Optimus Black does come to the nation's third largest carrier-no matter if it is called the LG Marquee-it is really not much of a surprise since we told you early last month about Google's phone site showing the device as part of Sprint's lineup. The device offers a 4 inch NOVA display with 700 nits of brightness, and resolution of 480 x 800. A single core 1GHz processor is running the show and there is 512MB of RAM onboard. There is both a rear and front facing camera coming in at 5MP and 2MP respectively. Unfortunately, the build of Android on the device is 2.2 although Optimus UI 2.0 runs on top of it.
