When we last talked about the LG Optimus 3D Max was back on April, when it was spotted on FCC. Since then, we didn’t manage to find anything else worth to be shared, though a release date and future availability was highly rumored and also expected. But now, we really have something to rely on, as LG has just released its new Optimus 3D Max handset in Germany. This is meaning that the phone is making its entrance for the European market, other countries being set to follow.
Unfortunately, there aren’t details about the possible US launch, but when it passed FCC, we learned that it might come wearing AT&T’s mark, so finger crosses guys. When I first heard about the Optimus 3D Max during Mobile World Congress, I didn’t know what to think. It’s said to be a real high end device, but it’s coming with the old Gingerbread instead of ICS. And now that it is finally released, we can see that it wasn’t just a rumor, ICS being nowhere to find; a truly big disappointment coming from LG.
Anyway, the LG Optimus 3D Max is the improved version of its older Optimus 3D brother. The specs are including a 1.2 GHz TI OMAP dual-core processor, support for 3D movie editing, a 4.3-inch 3D WVGA display (with Corning Gorilla Glass 2), 8GB of internal storage memory, a 5 MP pair of stereoscopic 3D cameras on the back with a single VGA front-facing one and the already mentioned Gingerbread OS, though an update is being promised. The looks have been also improved the 3d Max being thinner and lighter than its predecessor. What I like is the capability of converting 2D games into 3D one, as well as for other apps like Google Earth and other mapping tools.
The LG Optimus 3D Max price tag is still unknown, but according to our sources it will depend on the carrier. Furthermore, there are no words about its future availability on the market, though an LG spoke person said that is improbable to be offered in the UK; so, no 3D smartphone for the UK customers, at least not for now. Stay close as we will update you with fresh info as soon as something new is being announced.
