If you’re still craving a third dimension in your smartphone and aren’t getting all hot and bothered by the rumored LG X3, then you may be in for a treat during Mobile World Congress. The rumor mill has churned out that we may see the successor to the Optimus 3D, the LG CX2.
From our experience with glasses-free 3D handsets, it’s easy to see that the technology is very much a novelty. That said, we were much more impressed with the 3D offerings that came from the Optimus 3D opposed to HTC’s EVO 3D, so we wouldn’t mind if LG took another stab at it. Said to be beefed up in the specs department, albeit slightly, the LG CX2 should still turn a few heads.
The handset will sport a 4.3 inch WVGA NOVA display, 1.2 GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor, NFC, DLNA, HSPA+ 21 support, and the usual WiFi and Bluetooth. We can also expect to see the CX2 be slightly thinner than the Optimus 3D, which is more than welcomed. We like LG’s NOVA display but we were really hoping to see one of the newer True HD IPS panels on this new handset. Of course, using a WVGA display may help get the costs down on this CX2.
While the idea of glasses-free 3D is certainly an interesting one, it doesn’t seem like it belongs in phones just yet. Sure, it’s cool and novel but it’s still not where it needs to be to really interest the end-user enough to specifically seek out a particular handset using the technology. Maybe we’re wrong, though. Could the LG CX2 be the 3D phone the world has been waiting for? We will just have to wait and see.
What kind of specs would be a must-have for you if you were considering a glasses-free 3D phone? Does the CX2 fit the bill?
