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.

Sort of want, but where does this fill a niche that Sprint doesn't already have covered? Especially with the HTC Hero 4G coming out too at the same screen size and single core processor. The Evo 4G I'd getting old but its still for sale and overall is still a great phone and would be a competitor to the Marquee. The Evo 3D and Photon are right above 4.0" screen size and have great dual core specs and are also very new. Plus the Epic Touch at 4.5" over shadows them all at only $199, their all touch, 4"ish line up is getting pretty full. I'm tempted because I like to burn out my eyes at full brightness, but single core and 512mb of ram is just too poor of specs for today, even if it was priced at $99 on contract.

The main point of the phone is the really bright and clear display. Probably sell it for $50 on contract. I actually think this phone might be a sleeper hit. Because, its good avg specs, seems like a mid range phone, but the screen comes from very high end phones that rivals Super AMOLED Plus on Samsung phones. Most mid range phones have some type of WVGA or something.
