The follow-up to LG’s debut 3D smartphone, the Optimus 3D, has been caught in leaked promo snaps along with details of changes and improvements it’s likely to bring.
Codenamed CX2, the hitherto unseen handset may not be a direct sequel to the 3D but more a spiritual successor, rocking a thinner, flatter design with a slight chin at the rear side.
The good folks over at Pocketnow managed to grab hold of some specs too. The CX2 is said to improve on the 3D’s auto-stereoscopic display and is home to a slightly more brawny 1.2GHz dual core processor (up from 1GHz) from Texas Instruments to aid in the conversation of 2D content to 3D.
The screen size will, however, remain the same at 4.3-inches. On the flip side, this is likely to be a brighter, prettier NOVA display that featured on the Optimus Black.
Also mooted to be on board are dual rear cameras, which are expected to be at least five megapixels in resolution, plus an NFC (Near Field Communication) chip for short-range contactless payments.
The rest of the device should be standard. Think: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 8GB of internal storage and HSPA support for high-speed internet access.
The CX2 is almost certain to make its debut at next month’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Stay tuned as we bring you more gen in the weeks to come.
