LG Optimus 3D Max Reaches Europe, Offers Slight Upgrades
The LG Optimus 3D Max rolled out in Europe on Monday, marking the first region to receive the 3D capable smartphone that offers several upgrades over the first-generation version of the device.
The new 3D Max features a slightly faster 1.2GHz TI OMAP dual-core processor that now offers 3D movie editing capabilities. The device also allows 3D games to be converted into 3D in real-time while offering the same type of 3D capabilities for Google Earth and other mapping applications.
First shown off at Mobile World Congress the device also offers a 4.3-inch 3D WVGA display created with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 which is super tough and even more scratch resistant. The device also comes equipped with a rather small 8GB of internal storage but features a microSD expansion slot that can provide up to 64GB of added memory.
The LG Optimus 3D Max also comes equipped with a pair of stereoscopic 3D cameras that offer 5-megapixel resolution alongside a front-facing VGA camera for self portrait taking and video calling. All of the devices features then connect to HSPA+ data networks with 21Mbps support, not quite the 4G LTE we were hoping for but still a decent data offering.
The phone is also equipped with NFC (near-field communications) technology and that tech works with LG’s Tag+ system which allows for fast switching device settings.
All of the Optimus Max 3D’s new options are then wrapped up nicely in a design that is actually 2mm slimmer than the first-generation of the device.
