In advance of Mobile World Congress the first image of what is said to be the LG Optimus 3D 2 has made its way online. A point of emphasis with the new design is the device’s thinness. Last year’s Optimus 3D suffered from the fact that the handset measured in at 11.9mm thick. This year LG has reportedly shaved that number down to 9.8mm, reducing the Optimus 3D’s weight in the process. The Optimus 3D 2 will feature a hi-res IPS display, likely the same as the HD screen found on the Optimus LTE.
The Optimus 3D 2 (or potentially Optimus 3D Max) will find its place next the Optimus Vu as one of LG’s MWC booth darlings, but the company may have some surprises for us yet. With Samsung staying low key this year, does LG have a chance to steal the show?
