Announced in February this year at the Mobile World Congress Barcelona, two of the most anticipated LG Android-based smartphones have entered the Malaysian market – the LG Optimus 4X and the Optimus 3D Max.
The LG Optimus 4X HD is regarded by many as the successor to the Optimus 2X – LG’s previous gen Android flagship. The once world’s first dual-core Android smartphone was eagerly anticipated but failed to make an impact due to stiff competition from rivals Samsung amongst others.
LG hopes the Optimus 4X HD will fare better with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a larger display – 4.7-inch True HD IPS with
1280×800 1280×720 resolution and a pixel density of around 320ppi – and a 1.5Ghz quad-core 4-PLUS-1 Nvidia’s Tegra 3 processor, that features four performance cores to handle intensive tasks and one companion core for non-processor exhaustive tasks like handling text messages and calls.
The Optimus 4X HD also comes with 1GB of RAM and 16GB on-board memory, dual-mic active noise cancellation and a micro SD memory expansion slot. In the imaging department, the Optimus 4X HD is equipped with a 1080p video-capable 8MP rear camera and a 1.3MP front camera. To top it off, there’s a 2,150mAh battery that should offer up good stamina all wrapped in a body that’s just 8.9mm thick.
The Optimus 4X HD retails for RM1,799 which is really cheap when compared to its direct competitors — the Samsung Galaxy S III (RRP RM2,199) and the HTC One X (RRP RM2,099)
The Optimus 3D Max is an improvement over the original Optimus 3D with a 4.3-inch 800×480 Gorilla Glass 2 display (approx. 217 ppi). Powering the device is a 1.2Ghz dual-core TI OMAP 4430 processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB of on board storage with a micro SD card expansion slot.
In the camera department, you get a dual-array 5MP rear camera that shoots 1080p videos in 2D mode and 720p in 3D. Battery capacity is a rather standard 1,520mAh.
The Optimus 3D Max retails for RM1,599 but we’d rather something else without the 3D capabilities.
LG has announced a barrage of new smart phones and the Italian tech site telefonino has gotten their hands on some of the devices ahead of the big event.
To recap on the devices, the Optimus 4X HD is a quad core device with a HD 4.7″ screen while the Optimus 3D Max is an improvement of its 4.3″ LG Optimus 3D with better processor, slimmer profile and lighter weight. Lastly, the Optimus Vu is a large phone-tablet that comes with a 5″ screen at 4:3 display aspect ratio.
Head after the break for the rest of the videos.
LG has announced the Optimus 3D Max, the sequel for its Optimus 3D Android smart phone which comes with couple of new enhancements. While maintaining its glasses-free 4.3″ 3D screen that pushes 800×480 pixels, the Optimus 3D Max now runs on a dual-core 1.2GHz OMAP 4430 processor. It has 1GB of RAM and comes with 8GB of internal storage.
New on the device is the inclusion of NFC and the introduction of LG’s Tag+ which lets you switch profiles by tapping. You can also expect a tiny bit more life as the capacity is bumped from 1,500mAh in the previous 3D to 1,520mAh in the 3D Max. In terms of 3D shooting, it still comes with dual 5MP cameras and there’s a front facing VGA camera as well.
At time of announcement, the Optimus 3D Max runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
