LG has started to roll out its new 3D smartphone with the LG Optimus 3D Max in the European market.
The South Korean smartphone maker may not have met a winner in the original LG Optimus 3D, but this does not mean it will stop releasing a second one with upgraded specs.
The Optimus 3D Max comes with a slimmer 9.6mm profile that houses a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch ‘naked eye’ 3D touchscreen and Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but LG will reportedly release an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update soon.
First seen at the Mobile World Congress 2012 at Barcelona in February, the Optimus 3D Max also features two 5-megapixel cameras for shooting 3D videos, a front-facing camera, DLNA, HDMI and an embedded NFC chip.
“We are deliberately pushing the limits of mobile entertainment innovation with the Optimus 3D Max,” said LG Mobile CEO Dr. Jong-seok Park. “Our second generation glasses-free 3D smartphone is as thin and light as any other high-end smartphone while still delivering a spectacular picture in either 2D or 3D.”
The LG Optimus 3D Max is now in stores all over Europe.
