LG launches Optimus 3D Max Smartphone in Europe
LG’s latest achievement in the glasses-free 3D space — the Optimus 3D Max — will kick-off its global roll-out today starting in Europe. As first seen at Mobile World Congress 2012, the second-generation 3D smartphone boasts an enhanced chipset and more enticing 3D entertainment features in a slimmer and lighter body. The LG Optimus 3D Max now includes a new 3D Converter which allows for a greater variety of 3D content as it converts 2D content from Google Earth, Google Maps and other mapping apps into 3D. The unique 3D video editor allows the editing of 3D video on the phone in real time and the 3D Hot Key mounted on the side of the phone enables users to easily toggle between 2D and 3D.
The LG Optimus 3D Max includes 3D-style cubicle icons in addition to its customizable icons which can be amended by applying the users’ own photos through the Icon Customizer feature. The LG Optimus 3D Max is 2mm slimmer and 20g lighter than its predecessor, measuring only 9.6 mm thin and weighing 148g. The 5MP camera on the rear captures both photos and video in 3D using its dual lenses. The recorded material can be viewed directly on the smartphone in glasses-free 3D or on a 3D capable computer monitor or TV.
