LG’s looking to release another glasses-free 3D smartphone and while we’ve heard tons of names and leaks, it will officially be known as the LG Optimus 3D Max. We got our first official look at the new 3D phone at Mobile World Congress (linked to below) and now we are seeing it clear the FCC on its way to AT&T. Sadly it appears to only be rocking 3G and HSPA+ speeds, no 4G LTE here.
With names such as the Optimus 3D 2, the CX2, and 3D Cube we’ve seen our fair share of information about this phone. While it doesn’t have any huge changes over the original Optimus 3D (aka LG Thrill 4G for AT&T) it does look like a pretty solid phone, especially if the 3D feature is of any interest to you.
The new 3D Max will be faster, thinner, and lighter than the original. While it had a dual-core processor the new 3D Max comes with a faster 1.2 GHz dual-core chip – although we aren’t sure if that is a Qualcomm or another Texas Instruments OMAP 4. The phone still features a 4.3″ screen with a low 480 x 800 resolution, but it does offer stereoscopic glasses-free 3D video and picture viewing, not to mention LG’s own 3D UI and games tailored to use the 3D effects. According to the FCC filing it will be using AT&T’s 3G and HSPA+ 4G speeds, with no mention of LTE so that wasn’t good news, but things could change before a release date.
Are you interested in a 3D phone with dual 5 megapixel cameras? Or still just think it’s a gimmick?
