LG unveiled Optimus 3D Max (which will also be called the Optimus 3D Cube in some regions) which provides a complete 3D entertainment platform. The second edition glasses-free 3D smartphone is a big leap ahead of last year’s Optimus 3D. Featuring a premium design with a slimmer and lighter body, LG is determined to keeping a minimalistic design by keeping the essentials and losing everything else. At only 9.6mm thin and weighing 148g, the sleek body with metallic and rounded edges integrates the best 3D features on top of desirable 2D features. It includes the Icon Customizer which features unique 3D style cubicle icons which users can customize with their own photos. Running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Optimus 3D Max will receive upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich shortly after the launch.
With the flexibility in both 2D and 3D mode, its a pleasure to view on 4.3-inch 3D WVGA Display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Data connection is blazing fast with 3G network speed improved to HSPA+ 21Mbps. For greater user convenience, Optimus 3D Max also includes LG Tag+ which offers NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities. One if its advantages is automatic setting changes by creating predefined tags that are customized to certain modes like car-mode, office-mode or sleepmode. In different locations, the predefined tags will automatically change various phone settings including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and sound volume. Other innovative features include HD converter, Range Finder and Out-focusing Shot.
Using the enhanced 3D Converter, users can convert Google Earth, Google Maps and other road views into 3D. In addition, using the 3D Hot Key enables easy toggling of photos and videos in 2D or 3D. The video contents, applications and games optimized for the 3D Converter available from the 3D Zone at LG Smartphone continues to expand. Running on 1.2GHz Dual-Core processor, other specifications include 8GB Internal Storage, 1GB RAM, 5-megapixel dual-lens camera, HDMI, DLNA and 1,520 mAh battery. Optimus 3D Max will first launch in Korea in March and will gradually roll out in other markets starting in Europe.
