LG has officially started to roll out the Optimus 3D Max – the phone they introduced as the “Optimus 3D Cube” at the Mobile World Congress last February – in Europe. They didn’t specify exactly which European countries get it today, but hey, if you’re, um, European, you might want to check out your local LG-serving stores if you’re in the market for a fairly high-end phone that rocks a glasses-free 3D screen.
We’re not quite sure if the market’s still looking for a phone that takes and views 3D content – it didn’t catch on two years ago, and it doesn’t look like there’s anything new to make it any more appealing today – but it’s still a pretty solid smartphone regardless. The Optimus 3D Max features an updated spec list that includes a faster dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a 4.3-inch 3D WVGA touchscreen display under a Gorilla Glass 2 panel, and 8GB of internal storage that can be expanded with a microSD card.
Probably nothing to get too excited about if you’re not into the whole mobile 3D thing, but if that’s what rocks your boat, the 3D Max features dual 5MP camera lens at the back for capturing stereoscopic content, and software that converts 2D apps and games (including Google Maps) into 3D.
The rest of the spec includes a front-facing VGA cam, NFC tech (which works with LG’s Tag+ feature), and HSPA+ network support.
