Last year, LG launched the groundbreaking Optimus 3D, bringing 3D movies and games to smartphones for the first time. Now, it’s made mobile 3D even more desirable with the new Optimus 3D Max.
It comes armed with a potent 1.2GHz, dual-core processor, making it more powerful than its predecessor, but at 9.6mm thick it’s also a whole 4mm slimmer. The bright 4.3in, 800x480-pixel display again employs an invisible ‘parallax’ layer to give you 3D without needing special glasses.
A pair of 5MP, Full-HD cameras lets you shoot your own 3D photos and videos, and you can edit your pictures and videos on the phone, ready for uploading direct to social media sites such as YouTube’s dedicated 3D channel.
By connecting an MHL cable to the phone’s microUSB socket and a 3D TV’s HDMI port, it’s possible to view your photos and videos super-sized in 3D. Or if you have a Wi-Fi-enabled TV, you can share your clips wirelessly using SmartShare and DLNA. There’s even a built-in HRZ Converter Engine to transform 2D video into 3D in realtime.
Naturally, the Optimus 3D Max majors in 3D gaming and comes with 3D titles from leading developer Gameloft already pre-installed, including Asphalt 6, Let’s Golf 2 and NOVA. Further 2D and 3D games can be downloaded with just a few clicks from the LG Smartworld app store.With so much power on tap, the Optimus 3D Max is also great for multitasking and doing all the usual stuff like browsing the web and keeping tabs on Facebook and Twitter. Overall, it’s a seriously speedy smartphone with some amazing 3D skills.
