LG Optimus 3D / Thrill 4G Hits FCC With AT&T Bands
Last month AT&T announced its plans to launch the LG Optimus 3D in the US as the Thrill 4G. Almost immediately thereafter, an Optimus 3D showed up in paperwork filings at the FCC, but with an assortment of UMTS bands that just didn’t make sense for AT&T and the US. Now it looks like the Thrill 4G, as it will appear on AT&T, may have finally landed at the FCC as well, with documents published today showing the phone supporting AT&T’s 3G frequencies.
The smartphone is listed in FCC documentation as the LG P920H; the Optimus 3D we saw last month was simply the P920. This time, the phone uses both of the 850 and 1900MHz bands for GSM as well as high-speed HSDPA/HSUPA communication (assuming, of course, that AT&T gets its act together when it comes to hobbling Androids with HSUPA).
The no-glasses-required 3D Android will sport a dual-core processor and record high-def video (including 3D 720p clips) when it’s released. AT&T hasn’t said when we can hope to see the Thrill 4G, but with this FCC certification, there’s one less hurdle in its way.
