The Thrill 4G on AT&T will be the first one of the first opportunities for smartphone users in the States to check out a handset with a no-glasses-required 3D screen. While Sharp’s 3D models and the LG Optimus 3D – the Thrill 4G without carrier branding – are already available, this AT&T launch will finally help (along with the HTC EVO 3D) get one of these devices out into the hands of smartphone users and give us an indication if the 3D screen fad will take off in the US.
We’ve been keeping our eyes on FCC filings, to get an idea on the [...]
The LG Optimus 3D didn’t manage to become the world’s first 3D smartphone — there was at least the Sharp Lynx 3D ahead of it — but managed to set two other “world’s first” record by shipping with the world’s first 3D AR browser and by having a “tri-dual configuration”.
In the latest Optimus 3D video, LG is showing the world what it means to have a “tri-dual” configuration. The smartphone sports a combo of dual core processor, dual channel and dual memory architecture. This is delivered with the help of the [...]
The LG Optimus 3D — joining AT&T as the LG Thrill 4G — is going to be packed with the world’s first three dimensional augmented-reality browser Wikitude 3D — maybe getting another Guinness record for a world’s first.
Many world’s firsts here: world’s first dual-core, dual-channel, dual-memory architecture, the first full 3D platform providing glasses-free viewing, recording and sharing of 3D content as well as the world’s first 3D augmented-reality browser. What does this mean besides all the marketing talk?
While 2D AR [...]
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 [...]
Just a day after AT&T revealed that it will be bringing LG’s Optimus 3D no-glasses-required 3D Android phone to the US as the Thrill 4G, paperwork for the Optimus 3D has shown up in the FCC’s system, sharing with us all its RF testing goodness.
Interestingly, the evaluated bands on this Optimus 3D, listed as LG model P920, are for UMTS II and IV. Those don’t match what we’d expect from the international, unlocked version of the phone, nor what the Thrill 4G should have for AT&T service. Either there’s the unlikely situation that the Thrill [...]
We’ve had our eye on the innovative LG Optimus 3D since we first heard about it back in January, with its screen technology capable of recreating 3D graphics without the need for any special glasses. Pre-orders for the phone in the UK have placed its release date around the end of April, but we’ve been left guessing as to when it might possibly arrive in the US. AT&T has now announced that it will be the carrier to bring 3D smartphones to American audiences, as it renames what appears to be the Optimus 3D to the LG Thrill 4G, and prepares to sell the phone in the [...]
