LG Optimus 3D Android smartphone coming at MWC 2011?
Since Samsung is getting ready to unveil new Galaxy smartphones at MWC next month, LG has to come with some new handsets as well, right?
Well, one of these handsets might be the LG Optimus 3D, which, according to All About Phones, was briefly mentioned on The Phone House’s website (The Phone House is the Dutch arm of The Carphone Warehouse).
To confirm (sort of) the upcoming announcement, LG has just sent out invites for an event that will take place on February 14 – the day MWC debuts – in Barcelona. There, a new Optimus smartphone will be showcased, bringing us a “new dimension.” Sure, 3D isn’t specifically mentioned, but it can’t be something else – especially since we’ve also heard that LG’s G-Slate tablet would have a 3D display, too.
Even though the Optimus range also includes Windows Phone 7 handsets, the Optimus 3D is probably an Android smartphone. The device seen in the invite above looks a lot like the Optimus 2X and the Optimus Black (both of which are, of course, based on Android), and I just don’t see it running WP7.
The Optimus 3D should be powered by Nvidia’s Tegra 2 3D chip, rumored to be unveiled pretty soon. We’re certainly looking forward to seeing this new smartphone!
