If a recent rumor is to be believed, then LG is probably going to upgrade its LG Optimus 3D smartphone in the form of the LG Optimus 3D 2 — codenamed LG CX2. While 3D technology tried to get started in 2011 with the HTC EVo 3D and the LG Optimus 3D, the general public wasn’t as receptive to the technology as manufacturers had hoped. However, it looks like that is not going to stop LG from launching a slightly revamped Optimus 3D 2 at Mobile World Congress 2012.
According to a leaked picture and some details surrounding the device, the Optimus 3D 2 will sport a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3 inch NOVA display, dual 5MP rear facing cameras, and 8GB of onboard memory. Despite the added processor power and better display, the Optimus 3D 2 managed to lose 2mm of bulk compared to its predecessor. Unfortunately, reports indicate it will likely launch with Android 2.3 onboard, which comes as a disappointment since most consumers want to purchase smartphones running Android 4.0 at this time.
With an announcement for the Optimus 3D 2 expected to take place at Mobile World Congress 2012, we could see it launch as early as the first month of Spring, but only time will tell.
