LG Optimus 3D Max Will NOT Be Available In UK

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 (opens in new tab) 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.
