iPhone 4S Rival Alert : LG Preparing Followup To Optimus 3D Called CX2

The first pictures of the successor of the Optimus 3D, codenamed the CX2, has emerged courtesy of tech website Pocketnow.

The smartphone appears to sport the same elegant profile as the X3, which is set to become LG's new top of the range handset.

The CX2 is set to launch at the Mobile World Congress next month and will run on a dual core TI OMAP4430 chipset clocked at 1.2GHz, possibly with 1GB RAM and the same 8GB onboard storage (with microSD card slot.

The 3D hardware is said to disappointingly remain the same; there's a 4.3-inch WVGA 3D stereoscopic capacitive touchscreen NOVA display (as introduced on the LG Optimus Black) and a dual five megapixel camera.

Pocketnow says that the device will be slimmed down to 10mm and will come with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HSPA and NFC technology.

The pictures posted on Pocketnow show that the handset will have four buttons rather than three on the front.

It will be interesting to see whether LG sells the CX2 well under £300 and if it can be brought to market before the end of Q1; the HTC Evo 3D, which comes with roughly the same specification, can already be had for £250.
