LG’s second-generation 3D smartphone now has a 3D converter that can “convert 2D content from Google Earth, Google Maps and other mapping apps into 3D,” LG said in a statement released during the launching of the Optimus 3D Max.
The smartphone’s dual rear-facing five megapixel cameras allow users to capture 3D photos and videos and edit them with the “unique 3D video editor” in real time on a 4.3-inch 3D touchscreen.
Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company said in their statement that “this device has evolved significantly since we introduced the first Optimus 3D at the Mobile World Congress in 2011.”
“Our second-generation glasses-free 3D smartphone is as thin and light as any other high-end smartphone while still delivering a spectacular picture in either 2D or 3D,” Park said.
The 9.6-millimeter thin and 148-gram Optimus 3D Max will have additional features like a High-Definition Converter “to offer high resolution content [that can be] viewed on a TV connected through Mobile High-Definition Link.”
Recorded videos and captured photos can also be viewed on a 3D capable TV through other links such as USB, HDMI or DNLA for wireless connection.
The Optimus 3D Max has 1.2GHz Dual-Core processor, one GB memory, eight GB internal storage with MicroSD support up to 32GB, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.
It is available in all LG Concept Stores nationwide for a retail price of P26,990.
LG Optimus L7
LG also launched the latest smartphone in its L-series lineup, the Optimus L7 that runs on the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.
“LG Optimus L7 offers beauty and performance in one smart package” that caters to users “desiring high-end style and sophistication in a smartphone,” Park said in a separate statement.
“The L7 is a significant addition to our L-Series portfolio and we are confident that it’ll prove highly attractive to users. We expect it to be one of our most popular smartphones,” he said.
The 8.7mm thin smartphone has a large 4.3-inch touchscreen display and a five megapixel rear-facing camera capable of “six-tenth of a second autofocus” that will enable user to take pictures quicker and more accurately.
L7 has a 1GHz Cortex A5 processor and 4GB internal storage with MicroSD support up to 32GB.
It is available in LG Concept stores throughout the Philippines and sells for a retail price of P15,990.
