LG Optimus 3D Max in the flesh, take two for LG
LG is back with another 3D-capable smartphone, the Optimus 3D Max. This is not the first time LG came out with a phone sporting a stereoscopic camera (they had the Optimus 3D last year) but looks like this second incarnation wants to take another shot at 3D images again.
The LG Optimus 3D Max comes with a 4.3-inch 3D LCD display that’s protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 2, a dual-core TI OMAP processor (1.2GHz Cortex-A9), PowerVR SGX540 and 1GB of RAM.
That’s basically the same chip they used on the Optimus 3D and they just doubled the RAM. It’s now also thinner than its predecessor (9.6mm vs. 11.9mm) and lighter (148 grams vs 168 grams).
The rest seems to be the same — exactly same display, 8GB internal storage and dual 5MP cameras. The NFC chip is new though but it doesn’t have the LG Tag+ with it so we may not be able to test that part.

We’re still taking our time and doing a lot of testing to focus on the 3D features of this smartphone as it is supposed to be its main selling point.
We got the demo unit from LG Philippines last week but we’re not yet told when this will be launched/released in the country and how much it will sell for. Our hunch is sometime in the 1st or 2nd week of June. Check back with us once we’re done with the full review in a week or two.
