Unveiled alongside a new WP7 handset, AT&T will be carrying the LG Optimus 3D rebranded as the LG Thrill 4G.
Available in “coming months,” the LG Thrill 4G comes complete with a dual-core processor, Android 2.2, 5MP stereoscopic camera, DLNA, HDMI out, 8GB internal memory, and of course a 4.3-inch glasses free 3D display.
Android 2.2 probably doesn’t look as appetizing as it used to, but fear not as the Optimus 3D is slated to receive an upgrade to 2.3 before too long. With the Thrill 4G simply an Optimus clone, you should expect Gingerbread or higher to make its way onto the Thrill as well.
There’s a good chance we’ll see more Thrill 4G soon thanks to CTIA, so be on the lookout.
The LG Thrill 4G will be exclusive to AT&T customers and reach AT&T stores in the coming months. Running the first dual-core, dual-channel 1 GHz processor in the U.S. and based on the Android 2.2 platform, LG Thrill 4G will be among the first to deliver a glasses-free 3D experience to U.S. customers and will allow users to shoot 3D video and 3D stills with the dual 5-megapixel stereoscopic camera. In addition to apps and games from Android Market, LG Thrill 4G will offer 3D content via the “LG 3D Space,” which houses 3D games, video clips and images for quick, convenient access.
Preloaded with 16 GB of memory (8 GB onboard plus an 8 GB MicroSD card), the LG Thrill 4G will record 3D video at 720p resolution and 2D at 1080p quality. The smartphone will be able to play video back in high definition through the HDMI-out port on the device or stream content wirelessly through DLNA technology.
