(Times of India Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) NEW DELHI: LG has launched its second generation glasses-free 3D smartphone- the Optimus 3D Max -in the European market. As first seen at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2012, the 3D smartphone boasts an enhanced chipset and 3D entertainment features in a slimmer and lighter body.
"We are deliberately pushing the limits of mobile entertainment innovation with the Optimus 3D Max," said Jong-seok Park, president & CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, in a release. "This device has evolved significantly since we introduced the first Optimus 3D at MWC in 2011. Our second generation glasses-free 3D smartphone is as thin and light as any other high-end smartphone while delivering a spectacular picture in either 2D or 3D."
The Optimus 3D Max includes a 3D converter which allows for a greater variety of 3D content as it converts 2D content from Google Earth, Google Maps and other mapping apps into 3D. Visitors at MWC 2012 also raved about the device's 3D video editor which allows editing of 3D video on the phone in real time. And the 3D hot key mounted on the side of the phone enables users to easily toggle between 2D and 3D. The Optimus 3D Max includes 3D-style cubicle icons in addition to its customizable icons which can be amended by applying the users' own photos through the icon customizer feature.
Additional features, include a HD converter to offer high resolution content to be viewed on a TV connected through MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) and range finder, which calculates the distance between the camera and a subject as well as the dimensions of an object through triangulation.
The Optimus 3D Max is 2mm slimmer and 20g lighter than its predecessor, measuring only 9.6 mm (in thickness) and weighing 148g. The 5MP rear camera captures both photos and video in 3D using its dual lenses. The recorded material can be viewed directly on the smartphone in glasses-free 3D or on a 3D capable computer monitor or TV.
