LG Optimus 3D 2 appears online

When the original came out last year, we didn't exactly give it a glowing review. But that doesn't mean the LG Optimus 3D 2 will be a disappointment too.

On the contrary, the new version, codenamed the CX2, might well take lessons from the failings of the original 3D smartphone. Images of the new phone have been obtained by Pocketnow, which show a slim (under 10mm) smartphone that, judging by the initial specification, is more of a step on from the original than a complete reworking.

The first 3D packed a 1GHz dual-core OMAP processor and 4.3-inch WVGA display, but the CX2 supposedly bumps up the processor to a 1.2GHz dual-core version, with the screen, much the same on paper, now using a NOVA display for improved brightness, especially in bright light and with the 3D. Cameras will be the same, with a five-megapixel lens for snaps. There's also 8GB of internal storage and an NFC chip for those contactless payments. The operating system, disappointingly, is Gingerbread rather than Ice Cream Sandwich.

But best of all, the auto-stereoscopic display has been improved, allowing the conversion of two-dimensional material into stereoscopic footage. We'll reserve judgement on that until we see it in action, but it certainly sounds impressive on paper. Not long to wait until we get hands on either - the MWC event in February should see this launch, followed by a shelf date in spring.
