LG Launches More Phones Ahead of MWC: Optimus 3D Max and Optimus Vu
It’s only a few more days to MWC 2012 and LG seems to be letting its cats out of the bag. LG has announced the sequel to the Optimus 3D, the Optimus 3D Max[also known as Optimus 3D Cube] and the Optmius Vu.
The Optimus 3D Max runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread[upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich promised] and features a glasses-free 4.3-inch 3D screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU and 16GB of internal storage. LG says it’s the world’s first phone that can handle 3D Photo and video editing captured by two rear-facing 5 megapixel cameras.
Apart from the Usual Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, the Optimus 3D includes NFC and LG’s new LG Tag+ which can change a phone’s settings when swiped. The Optimus 3D Max is currently available on Korea’s SK Telecom and will arrive in Europe later in the year.
The Optimus Vu on the other hand is a 5-inch IPS LCD Display smartphone. Currently running Android 2.3, the Optimus Vu packs a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, 8 megapixel rear camera and a 2080mAh battery. It’s slim at 8.5mm and has the capability to connect to LTE networkds. An Ice Cream Sandwich update has been promised and will be available within three months of launch.
Like the phone-tablet hybrid that is Samsung’s Galaxy Note, The Optimus Vu also packs a stylus and a specialised button for screenshots and memos.
