LG Optimus Max 3D Europe bound, but UK will have to wait

LG’s second-generation 3D smartphone is coming to Europe.

From today the LG Optimus 3D Max will begin arriving in stores with more three-dimensional content than you’d find in your local multiplex cinema. 

Yet LG is still remaining tight-lipped as to whether we’ll be seeing it arrive in the UK.

With its 3D Converter, Google Earth and Google Maps will all become 3D, while the video-editing suite has been rejigged to improve your own attempts at recreating the next Avatar.

The LG Optimus 3D Max, which Pocket-lint got hands-on at MWC, also boasts a new form factor to its predecessor.

It’s now 2mm thinner which, to be fair, is neither here nor there - though with 20g shed off the weight, you should feel less weighed down.

One dampener lies in the fact that the phone runs on only Android 2.3 Gingerbread, though we assume an update will be available at some point.

As with the original LG Optimus 3D, there’s a 3D Hot Key on the side of the phone which allows you to switch between 2D and 3D. 

No glasses are needed to view your 3D content on the 4.3-inch display and a future maintenance release will enable you to stream your content to your TV via a mobile high-definition link.

All this 3D goodness is made possible by the two five-megapixel cameras found on the back of the phone.

If all this has got you salivating, may we suggest you write a kindly worded letter to LG letting it know how much you would like to see it arriving in these parts.
