A little less than a month ago we’ve seen the first images of the LG CX2, the follow-up to last year’s successful Optimus 3D. Initially referred to as the LG Optimus 3D 2, we’ve later learned that it might reach the market under the 3D Max moniker.
The picture above seems to depict a white version of the LG CX2 (aka Optimus 3D 2, aka 3D Max). Because of the pigmentless color the capacitive buttons are not showing and the sensors for proximity and light seem to be more visible to the right of the front-facer than in the previous, black version render.
LG seems to have tweaked its own custom user interface a little bit judging by the picture. Because we’re looking at a glasses-free 3D phone, the 3D effect seems to be emulated by the virtual box-like home screen — remember, the 3D effect on auto-stereoscopic displays is only possible in landscape).
The report also tries to contradict what we initially heard about the display by mentioning a higher-than-WVGA resolution (probably a HD-IPS LCD screen of 4.5-inches and 720 x 1280 resolution like on the Optimus LTE).
The rest of the specs are unknown but the initial report mentioned a 1.2GHz dual-core TI processor, dual rear cameras should of five-megapixel resolution, a slimmed down design for a sub-10-millimeter profile, 8GB internal storage, and radios for DLNA-capable WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, and 21Mbps HSPA. We’ll be in Barcelona to see the phone and tell you everything about it.
