There have been rumours surfacing about the possible launch of the Optimus 3D II, one of three phones by LG that are expected to unveil later this month at Mobile World Congress. Korean site ET News is reporting that LG’s strategy for their newest 3D phone is to offer a design that is thinner and lighter. The Optimus 3D II will measure in at only 9.8 mm thick and weigh 20 grams less than its predecessor. LG is expected to bump up the resolution on their 3D display, hopefully something similar to the True HD IPS display featured on the recently released Optimus LTE. The Optimus 3D II might come packed with a higher resolution IPS screen, the original phone had a reasonable 217ppi LCD, but the LG Optimus 3D II should make that look positively pixelated with the AH-IPS display unveiled by LG earlier in the year. This wonder display isn’t AMOLED but it clocks up an impressive 326ppi (in the 3.5in example screen), which is Retina Display territory (making it quite hard for anyone to imagine it in 3D). LG claims that this seemingly magical display will produce more accurate colours and a brighter image while using less power so battery performance should be improved. Let us hope the glasses-free 3D also comes enhanced with a “headache-free” image and plenty of 3D treats for young and and old to enjoy.
Rumored specs of the Optimus 3D 2 include:
- Android 4.0 with LG UI
- 1.2 GHz dual-core TI OMAP4 processor
- 4.3-inch NOVA 3D display
- Dual 5 MP rear cameras for 3D pictures and video
- Support for HSPA+ 21 Mbps networks
- WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC
