As OEMs switch their focus to 3D Android phones, LG seems to have the stolen the march on them as they look set to release yet another 3D Android phone. LG brought the Optimus 3D, the first 3D phone, to market in April, last year. We now have another member of the Optimus 3D family, with LG announcing the arrival of the Optimus 3D Max (with naming variations of Optimus 3D 2 and Optimus 3D Cube, for different markets). But is it worth it ?
Featuring a 4.3-inch screen and dual-camera’s capable of shooting 3D video and images, both upgraded to 5MP, does the Optimus 3D really deserve the “MAX” title is yet to be seen ! This certainly doesnt look like LG’s best effort with the HTC Evo 3D a way better 3D smartphone with a similar price tag.
Its other specifications include:
- 1.2 Ghz dual core TI OMAP 4430 processor
- 1 GB RAM
- 4.3″ IPS LCD Screen (Glasses-free 3D screen)
- 800×480 resolution
- Android 2.3 OS
- 802.11 b/g/n
- 1520 mAH
- Dual 5MP Camera, with 720p 3D recording
As every other OEM looks set to move to quad-core processors and Android 4.o Ice Cream Sandwich, LG really disappoint their small-faithful following. This would really not seem worth the money for people looking to buy high-end 3D-capable phones as LG has yet to reveal its flagship device the LG Optimus 4X HD. Wile this may not be in 3D it still seems better than this Optimus family member.
The LG Optimus 3D Max has just received GCF (Global Certification Forum) approval and an eventual FCC approval is only a short while away. While there is no official announcement on a release date or price, a Q2 2012 release is expected.
Would you prefer a 3D-capable Android smartphone with disappointing features or a high-end Android smartphone which is considered the swissknife of phones ? Let us know via the comments section below.
