Let the rumour mill begin. I have been able to get my hands on a lovely little morsel of info surrounding LG‘s newest Android offering. Now it’s definitely not 100% guaranteed so take it with a bucket of salt but it does seem feasible to a degree.

The rumour? Well LG just might be planning to launch the newest edition of the Optimus range, the Optimus 3D alongside it’s older brother, the Optimus 2X in Oz as early as April. Seeing as thought the handset is yet to be officially announced, something that will happen next week at MWC, it’s hard to imagine the handset coming to  Australia so close to it’s announcement date, but then again the 2X is due around the same time and that was only announced 3 weeks ago.

With only mid level handsets in the market now, such as the Optimus and Optimus One, this could be LG’s time to shine. The Tegra 2 packing Optimus 2X and “Nova” display sporting Optimus Black are primed to place LG at the top of the Android heap, something they haven’t been able to achieve with their current range of unimaginative handsets.  With MWC only a week away, let’s hope we get some information information regarding launch dates and locales.

Straight from the Press Release..

“LG’s most advanced smartphone to date will feature a dual-lens camera for 3D recording, a glasses-free LCD panel for 3D viewing and diverse connectivity options such as HDMI and DLNA for 3D content sharing anytime, anywhere.”

I hope it has something akin to gorilla glass .. imagine what a scratch would look like in 3d mode.. could spoil the whole illusion.


That is the funniest thing I’ve heard all day..

3D scratches…

Android Australia is one of the best Android sites out there. Its reason I wanted to join the team and was happy as a pig in you know what when Buzz accepted


Amen to that, Lucas; it’s a great site.

Do I get my free phone now…?

Buzz Moody

Sure, just send me your credit card number and it’ll be on its way 🙂


Looks like Droid X. I hope Buzz brings a lot of good news about the new Samsung devices that are going to be announced on 13th. I love Android Australia. There are so many Android blogs but this one brings information and removes the noise. I feel like Android Guys, Android and Me and AndroidTapp all just copy what Engadget has to say.
