Having already taken the wraps off the Optimus Vu and Optimus L-style series, LG has today taken the wraps off another rumored device -- the Optimus 3D MAX. Headed to Korea in March, then Europe and elsewhere later, the Optimus 3D MAX (spelled the old-fashioned way, with just one X) takes the original Optimus 3D's hardware and makes some modest improvements, before packing it into a slimmer, lighter chassis. We're waiting on official confirmation, but it looks like this is an variant of the Optimus 3D Cube, which was announced for SK Telecom a few hours ago.
The MAX's specs will be familiar to anyone who's used last year's Optimus 3D -- there's a 4.3-inch WVGA 3D IPS display, dual 5MP rear cameras, 8GB of internal storage and 1GB of app storage and HSPA+ support up to 21Mbps. The CPU's even the same model -- an TI OMAP 4430 -- though it's been bumped from 1GHz up to 1.2GHz. The device ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread (yeah, we know), with an ICS upgrade coming "shortly after release". Judging by the screenshots, though, LG's rolling out a new version of its Optimus UI in this, and other 2012 devices, so at least there'll be a bit of a visual refresh.
We'll be sure to grab some hands-on time with the Optimus 3D MAX when we arrive at Mobile World Congress in a few days time. In the meantime, you can find more photos, along with the full press release and spec list after the jump.
