LG is reportedly preparing a followup to its first 3D-capable handset, the Optimus 3D, in the form of a device codenamed CX2. While not a revolutionary advance over its predecessor, the CX2 does manage to improve the auto-stereoscopic display, beef up the processor, and facilitate the conversion of two-dimensional material into stereoscopic footage.

Whereas the Optimus 3D employs a 1.0GHz dual-core OMAP to push a 4.3-inch WVGA display, the CX2 supposedly steps the processor up to a 1.2GHz dual-core model, also from Texas Instruments. And while the screen dimensions and resolution will allegedly stay the same, this time around LG is using an NOVA display for improved brightness. (There will, however, apparently be a somewhat significant variation in brightness between the screen’s 2D and 3D modes.)

The dual rear cameras should maintain a five-megapixel resolution between generations, but the entire device has allegedly been slimmed down by nearly two full millimters, from just under 12 to sub-10-millimeter. Internal storage will likely hold at 8GB, while radios should include DLNA-capable 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, and the same 21Mbps HSPA we saw in company’s rumored quad-core X3 flagship. Also on board, according to a trusted source, is an NFC chip for mobile payments, device transfers, and tag reading.

We’re expecting the CX2 to debut next month at Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress, and begin hitting retail channels — running a Gingerbread build — in early spring.
