With Mobile World Congress less than two weeks away, we're starting to see images of even more unannounced devices leaking out online. The latest to appear is LG's successor to the Optimus 3D, the "CX2", or Optimus 3D MAX. This new leaked render shows a thin device in white, running what seems to be an updated version of LG's Optimus UI. LG's software is long overdue a visual refresh, so hopefully this new version will bring some much-needed improvements.
Alongside the new render, Korean site ETNews gave details of the device's size, weight and screen resolution. The site claims that the new device will sport a higher resolution 3D display, compared to the Optimus 3D's WVGA offering. Apparently LG has brought the device down to a thickness of just 9.8mm, and shaved 20 grams off its weight, too. The reported resolution increase is interesting, as it contradicts earlier reports that LG was sticking with WVGA for its second 3D phone. However, given the company's push towards 720p displays for its high end devices (as well as the reduction in visible resolution required for glasses-free 3D), we wouldn't be surprised to see a 720p IPS panel in this thing when it launches.
We'll know more about LG's next flagship device in just a few days, assuming the rumors of a MWC unveiling hold true.
