LG Optimus 3D 2nd generation could launch as early as Q1 2012


LG is working on a new version of Optimus 3D glasses-free device, which could be available as early as first quarter of 2012.

The new version will be considerably slimmer (around 7mm thick) than its predecessor (which is a little bulky I would say at 11.9mm thick), and it will arrive with a few improvements on the hardware side. In an interview for Pocket-lint, LG developer Dr. Henry Noh confirmed that his company is working on an improved variant of its 4.3-inch handset.

“Eventually, we want to make it so that having the 3D won’t necessarily mean that it’s going to be thicker,” Noh explained. “That’s going to be a differentiating factor that comes for free to the user.”

“These days, all the phones look the same. They have a huge screen – 4.3-inches is normal these days – and next year they’re moving even larger. And they have a fixed number of touch buttons. They’re the same thickness. They have the same camera. And even the same OS. It’s so boring.” Noh concluded.

This could be the next flagship device for the Korean handsets maker and might get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwhich. Would you consider buying a slimmer and improved version of LG Optimus 3D? Leave your comments down below.
