LG Gives Europe a Heads-Up: Optimus 3D Max Coming Your Way

First announced back during February’s Mobile World Congress, LG’s second autosteroscopic 3D smartphone, the Optimus 3D Max, has already made its retail debut in Asia. Since then, we’ve been waiting to see the phone start spreading out into some additional markets around the globe. The 3D Max is now poised to do just that, with LG announcing today the European launch of the smartphone.

The 3D Max is a mostly minor refresh of the original Optimus 3D, but it does make a couple decent improvements. There’s not a big change to the phone’s processor – a TI OMAP4430 for both versions – but the 3D Max gets a slight clock bump from 1GHz to 1.2GHz. RAM doubles to one gigabyte, and LG adds NFC support for this new version. When it comes to the handset’s all-important display, you won’t find anything new here, and this 4.3-inch WVGA component appears to be the same as from the Optimus 3D. Other hold-overs include the same 8GB of storage and microSD support.

One noteworthy change is that despite keeping so much of the old hardware, LG has managed to shave two millimeter’s thickness and twenty grams off the Optimus 3D – not much, but we’ll take it.

We’re still wondering about the 3D Max’s chances for coming to the US; despite having seen the phone swing by the FCC, we’ve yet to confirm any release plans.
