lg-optimus-3d-max.jpgMore pre-show smartphone news from LG this morning, who’ve just revealed that the LG Optimus 3D Max is headed to Mobile World Congress 2012 next week.

The successor to the LG Optimus 3D, first launched last year, it features a 4.3 inch autostereoscopic (glasses-free) LCD touchscreen, a 5MP rear camera with dual lenses for 3D recording, a VGA camera on the front and NFC capabilities, all powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor

Built to a super-slim specification (126.8 x 67.4 x 9.6mm and weighing 148g), it squeezes in 16GB of onboard memory and, if the original Optimus 3D is anything to go by, will have microSD expansion up to 32GB.

Android 2.3 Gingerbread launches with the phone, as well as a full suite of 3D video and image editing apps, with an Ice Cream Sandwich update to follow “shortly after launch”.

That launch is set to kick off in South Korea first, with Europe following soon afterwards. No concrete news yet however on dates or pricing.
