LG Optimus 3D 2

It's been approximately 254 days since (give or take) the last 3D-capable Android smartphone was announced. Two hundred fifty-four glorious days of not squinting, not forcing 3D pictures on our friends and family. 

There's a good chance that in a month, we'll see that 3D-less streak come to an end. A new render of a 3D LG device -- possibly to be dubbed the Optimus 3D 2 (awkward) or the LG CX2 (only slightly less awkward) -- has come from Pocketnow. You can see the stereoscopic cameras -- as in two of them -- buried beneath that watermark, and indeed it would surprise us not one bit to see it unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Specs are a tad better than the original Optimus 3D (read our full review), with a 4.3-inch NOVA display powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. DLNA, NFC and other standard smartphone specs are said to be tucked in there as well.

LG reportedly bringing CX2 (aka the Optimus 3D 2) to Mobile World Congress


I guess im one of the few that like the 3d phones.I want a Samsung note sized 3d phone with quad core my dream phone.This is why Android is so great choices. I have the Evo 3D and i use the 3d every day in games and i can convert any video to 3d which is pretty cool i think.I dont get all the hate for it you never have to use it if you dont want to so why not have it. What i really want is a 10in quad core tablet with the glasses free 3d screen and lg 3d game converter id buy that in a second

I'm kind of in between on the whole 3D thing. It's a cool gimmic, as long as you can shut it off and not have to deal with it for extended periods of time. In any case, if it actually has NFC, that would not be very standard of a feature and may be something to look at.

I've had the Evo 3D since July, and while I have been plenty happy with the phone, I haven't used the 3D feature since the day I bought it and it wasn't on the list of reasons why I made the purchase.

Long live 3D and all the other options us Android users can choose from(budget,screen size, sliding keyboard,themes,ect...).

I have the EVO 3D also. The 3D is a fun little conversation piece and it makes everybody go "OOHHH!!!" and "AAAHHHH!!!". I never considered it as a deal breaker either for buying the phone nor against buying the phone.

I don't know why anyone would be against a 3D phone as long as it is also able to do 2D. As far as I know, every 3D Android phone can, so I don't understand why anyone would complain about an added feature. Maybe there's an added price off-contract that I'm not aware about, but on-contract will still likely be the usual $199 or, worst case scenario, $299 (like some higher-end 2D phones on Verizon).

why do you hate something thats an extra feature. its like when the first camera phone came out, was it worth it. hell no, it was crap. useless pictures. but now 3D, an extra feature, isnt wanted. lets just go back to the basics and just use phone that only call people. idiots!

Yes because calling someone and idiot for their opinion is the right
thing to do...3D is a gimmick, always will be. Useless and gives countless people a headache. But if you don't like it...you don't have to buy it, I'm certainly not.

Look, I don't mind the 3D, as long as it doesn't take away from the camera's quality as a 2D shooter.

The Evo 3D lags a little behind because of this. I think the Original Evo 4G shoots better shots than the 3VO; and I've owned both.

So, if they want to add 3D, bring it on! Just don't take away from the rest of the phone or upgrade it LESS due to this addition....

The downside of 3D is that this means another small, low def screen and probably another low MP camera.

3D hurts. Compare the EVO 3D and it's non-3D brother the Sensation.
