LG launched its latest Optimus 3D Max handset yesterday in Germany and unfortunately, the company doesn't have plans to make it available on British borders. This comes as a confirmation to our previous claims.
The statement came from a LG spokesman who apparently told Engadget that the LG Optimus MAX will not be released in the UK, at least in the near future. This may count as a questionable decision, with LG already selling the Optimus 4X and the newly released L-style family in the United Kingdom.
Optimus 3D Max was first unveiled at this year's MWC event, as the second-generation 3D smartphone from LG. Its successor, the LG Optimus 3D, is currently selling for £274 on Amazon UK and was the first fully 3D mobile phone to be released back in 2011.
Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications, describes the handset as a "second generation glasses-free 3D ", which is "as thin and light as any other high-end smartphone while still delivering a spectacular picture in either 2D or 3D."
When it comes to specifications, the Optimus 3D Max integrates a 1.2GHz Dual-Core processor with an OMAP4430 chipset, a 4.3-inch 3D WVGA display built with Gorilla Glass technology, 8GB of internal memory storage as well as a microSD slot card which can be increased up to 32GB worth of space.
The handset also comes with 1GB of RAM, two 5-megapixel cameras situated on the back of the device and one VGA on the front, a 1,520 mAh battery and HDMI, NFC and LG Tag+ connections. As for the OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread comes preloaded.
