Earlier this year, we were hearing a lot of potential names for LG’s follow-up to its first autostereoscopic 3D smartphone, the Optimus 3D. Would it be the Optimus 3D 2, the Optimus 3D Cube, or maybe even the CX2? It turns out we’ll end up seeing the phone as the Optimus 3D Max. We’ve already talked to you about the phone’s specs, and given the hardware a hands-on look at the Mobile World Congress. Today we find ourselves one step closer to the 3D Max’s eventual release, upon the phone’s FCC certification paperwork being published.
Though the FCC docs don’t call the Optimus 3D Max by name, the model number LG-P720h is one that’s already been confirmed as the 3D Max’s. The phone’s paperwork reveals operation on AT&T’s 3G frequencies, but there’s no sign of LTE; that’s about what we’d expect, since there’s been no mention of LTE support for the 3D Max.
While we might just be looking at an international version of the phone here, this could very well be destined for AT&T, considering that the original Optimus 3D came to the carrier as the LG Thrill 4G. We wonder, though, just how much enthusiasm AT&T will have in the near future for non-LTE smartphones. For the moment, we don’t know of any confirmed US launch details for the 3D Max.
