LG Electronics has announced an enhancement to the Optimus family with the launch of LG Optimus 3D MAX and Optimus L7 smartphones. LG, in their official statement claims that these beautifully designed, lightweight smartphones combine an unmatched viewing experience with incredible performance. They claim that consumers will no longer have to restrict themselves to the limited capabilities of an average smartphone, as the newly launched Optimus phones allow them to design their own smart lives.
The Optimus 3D Max
For those who don't seem to get enough of 3D, LG claims that the Optimus 3D MAX is the answer that promises 3D on the go without glasses. It has a 4.3-inch screen with WVGA resolution and NOVA Display. Specifications include a Tri-dual 1.2Ghz OMAP4430 processor (Dual Core, Dual Channel & Dual Memory), 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, two 5 megapixel cameras, and a 1,520mAh battery. The phone runs on Android 2.3, Gingerbread and is 9.6mm thin.
According to Mr. Soon Kwon, President South West Asia Region and MD LG India, “LG Optimus 3D MAX is a natural and powerful evolution of LG Optimus 3D. Building on the phenomenal success of the original Optimus 3D, we are proud to unveil this ultimate Smartphone. In 2012, we will take LG’s leadership in Speed, Screen and Content to a whole new level. With the Optimus 3D MAX, we want to set new standards of quality viewing and powerful performance on mobiles packed in a slim and modern design”.
LG has also customized some of the software on the phone to take complete advantage of the glasses-less 3D capability. The 3D Converter takes 2D content off any available media (Videos, Pictures, and Games) and converts them to 3D for your viewing pleasure. A 3D video editor is also included - allowing you to edit your video footage in 3D in real-time, and a 3D Hot Key allows you to quickly switch between 2D and 3D views.
With the Optimus 3D MAX, one will be able to push video content via MHL HDMI or wirelessly, thanks to DLNA, at resolutions up to 1080p. 3D content shot using the phone can be pushed out to your TV using either method, provided its 3D ready.
