LG is slowly unveiling one phone after the other ahead of MWC: first it was the Optimus VU, then came the Optimus LTE Tag followed by the L-Series of Optimus L3, L5 and L7. Next in line today is the LG Optimus 3D Cube, also known as the LG Optimus 3D Max or the CX2 as we initially saw it one month ago.
The LG Optimus 3D Cube (LG-SU870) will be landing on SK Telecom’s line-up in March, where it will be an exclusive. We surely hope it will be rolled out in other regions too, where we believe it will still go by the Optimus 3D Max moniker.
Pretty much like we expected, it packs a 4.3-inch autostereoscopic glasses-free 3D screen, 1.2GHz dual-core processor (most probably Texas Instruments), dual-five-megapixel main cameras for 3D recording capability, VGA webcam, 16GB of internal storage, NFC with LG Tag+ compatibility, 1,520 mAh battery and Android 2.3 Gingerbread on-board (hopefully upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich) with LG’s custom user interface (which seems to emulate a 3D view in portrait) on top and 3D video editing software bundled, as a first.
We’re expecting to see the phone at next week’s MWC where we believe it will be marketed as the LG Optimus 3D Max. As far as pricing is concerned, 847,000 won ($753) should be a good indication of what the phone would go for unlocked and unsubsidized.
