LG CX2 renders leak, tease Optimus 3D successorAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Hot on the heels of the emergence of a render showing off LG's quad-core-powered X3, a new leak today has teased another upcoming Android handset from the company that lives by the motto that "Life's Good." This one's allegedly codenamed "CX2" and, rather that tout a quad-core CPU like its X3 brother, the CX2's major feature is that it's 3D-capable thanks to the pair of 5-megapixel cameras on its backside. Other rumored specs of this Optimus 3D successor include a 4.3-inch WVGA NOVA display, 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor, 8GB internal storage, NFC, and a body that measures in a below 10mm thick. The CX2 is also reportedly packing Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
So far the ability to record and display 3D content on a smartphone doesn't seem like it's exactly caught fire in the mobile space, as the last handset we saw with that feature was the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint. It looks like LG is ready to give 3D handsets another crack, though, and it'll be interesting to see how the CX2 performs now that LG has some experience with 3D smartphones under its belt and has been given the opportunity to look at and improve upon the Optimus 3D. LG is rumored to be prepping the CX2 for a debut at Mobile World Congress next month, so we may not have long to wait to check one out for ourselves.
