LG Optimus 3D Cube coming to MWC

LG continued a run of new smartphones as part of the lead-in to Mobile World Congress by introducing the Optimus 3D Cube, also known as the Optimus 3D Max. A direct sequel to the original, the device formerly codenamed the CX2 can now edit, not just play back, 3D video. The hardware is also noticeably slimmer at 9.6mm (versus 10.9mm) and bumps up the dual-core processor from 1GHz to 1.2GHz.

It continues to run on a glasses-free, 4.3-inch display and has two five-megapixel cameras at the back to record 3D. NFC short-range wireless is coming to LG's 3D phone for the first time and supports the same Tag+ stickers found in the Optimus LTE Tag. The stickers let users change their own settings on top of the usual NFC tag reading features of other devices.

The design is still running on Android 2.3 with no immediate mentions of a 4.0 upgrade, and it continues to carry 16GB of built-in storage. Apps both help curate 3D apps as well as let users convert 2D games and certain other apps to 3D.

LG plans to ship the Optimus 3D Cube to its home country before the end of March. Other countries haven't been mentioned; the first Optimus 3D shipped to North America either under its own name on Rogers or as the Thrill 4G on AT&T in the US, possibly giving a clue as to where the new version might go, likely under the Max name.
