It has been almost a year since LG set foot on stage at MWC, announcing the LG Optimus 3D (known as LG Thrill 4G in the US). This device was pretty exciting and revolutionary. Very few manufacturers have a glasses-free 3D option for their customers. Though an impressive device, most users expected more from the Optimus 3D. It seems LG is trying to make things better with a successor this year which it will unveil at the 2012 MWC, rumored to be named the LG CX2.
The LG CX2 is not as beefed up as some of the smartphones we are expecting, but it might bring some good improvements if you do not need stunning specs. According to PocketNow’s sources, this device will feature a 1.2 GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor, a 4.3-inch WVGA NOVA display, an NFC chip, DLNA, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, and an HSPA+21 antenna.
This smartphone will also be a bit thinner, measuring just under a centimeter (LG Optimus 3D is under 1.2 cm). Adding the NOVA display will help improve the brightness of the display. PocketNow is reporting that there will be a difference in brightness between 2D and 3D modes, though.
We will have to wait and see what LG has in store for the CX2 once this device is officially unveiled next month. As for the rest, it is expected to be pretty much the same as the LG Optimus 3D. For now, feel free to chime in in the comments section. Do you think this device is enough of an upgrade, or will you be skipping it?
