Optimus 3D Gingerbread update set to bring faster HSPA+, video enhancements

LG Optimus 3D owners are on track for few extra treats along with their Gingerbread update later this month, if an early leaked firmware build is any indication. The leaked build, which recently cropped up on XDA, is based on Android 2.3.5, and comes with enhancements like 2D and 3D video editing, 3D to 2D conversion and higher bit-rates for 3D videos. There's also the promise of faster HSPA+ cellular data on supporting units, with speeds of up to 21Mbps.

Don't get too excited about trying this on your Optimus 3D just yet though, as the firmware is pretty severely broken in its present form. Once you've channeled the black magic necessary to get it installed, you'll still likely run into issues getting cellular data and Wifi to work.

So it's a little unstable, as you'd expect from an unofficial, pre-release build. We were impressed with the software's general responsiveness though, which seemed markedly improved from earlier Froyo-based efforts. Hopefully we'll see all this good stuff carried over into the official build.

Hit the jump for a few more screenshots. The official Optimus 3D Gingerbread update is due to arrive from Nov. 21.
