Will the myTouch HD be the first U.S. 4G enabled phone with dual-core?

Will the myTouch HD be the first U.S. 4G enabled phone with dual-core?
Last week there was some speculation that the LG Optimus, a handset powered by the Tegra 2 processor, would be the first dual core phone to grace the pipelines of a U.S. carrier. But some information from a leaked T-Mobile document suggests that the nation's fourth largest carrier might beat LG to the punch with the myTouch HD.

According to the document, the myTouch HD has some heavy duty specs. Powered by a 1GHz dual processor, the device is expected to be equipped with a 3.8 inch S-TFT display and running Android 2.2. The rear facing camera should be 5MP with AF and flash while the front facing camera is expected to be VGA. The model is supposed to have 4GB of internal memory and be graced with a pre-installed Swype keyboard. As a safety feature, the Genius button has been updated to allow you to answer a text message using your voice.
The myTouch HD originally had a November 5th launch date based on T-Mobile's road map, but as we reported, the word is that the phone will be released on the 3rd of that month. T-Mobile will also start acknowledging that HSPA+ is basically 4G as ads for the device say it will be "operating on America's largest 4G network." The network has a current theoretical speed of 21 Mbps which is expected to double next year.

Santa will probably be lugging some T-Mobile handsets in his bags this holiday season. Between the first HSPA+ enabled handset in the T-Mobile G2 and the dual-core HSPA+ enabled myTouch HD, there is going to be some super powered Android phones under the tree this year.
