LG Optimus 3D Max could be next flop

It appears that albeit 3D technology not having that much of an impact in the tech world yet, LG is hell bent on pushing 3D devices on the mobile space, as they keep on dishing out 3D smartphones even though 3D smartphone don’t appear to do too well in the mobile arena, yet LG has another 3D handset to offer.

According to the guys over at Droid-life, the first LG 3D device, the LG Thrill 4G didn’t impress, and even the HTC EVO 3D was a bit of a flop, but that hasn’t stopped LG announcing the arrival of the LG Optimus 3D Max, which is set to release in March in Korea.

On the 3D side of things the LG Optimus 3D Max is said to sport a brighter display that its predecessor and has the ability to convert content such as Google Earth, Google Maps, photos, and videos captured by the handset to 3D.

Spec wise the LG Optimus 3D Maxx sports a 4.3-inch WVGA 3D touch screen with Gorilla Glass 2, along with dual 5 megapixel rear facing cameras, runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread (why they don’t simply go with ICS on launch is beyond me) a 1.2GHz dual core processor, 1GB internal memory, 8GB internal storage, HSPA+ 21Mbps, HDMI, DNLA, NFC, and a 1520mAh battery.

Once the LG Optimus 3D Max launches in Korea the device will be rolled out to other markets kicking off with Europe, and the handset will apparently receive an update to Android Ice Cream Sandwich shortly after launch.

Obviously no word on what the LG Optimus 3D Max will hit the pocket for, but can that 3D actually make it a success or could it be the next flop? I guess we’ll have to wait and see on that matter. Have you opted for a 3D handset and if so what you’re your views on 3D?

    The LG Thrill 3D has been out for almost 6 months and still has not received Android 2.3 or 4.0. So when they say “the smartphone will receive an upgrade shortly after the launch”, they really mean a short year or two. LG does not support their phones after launch, just read their forums and comments on social pages.
