LG Announces Android Powered Optimus 3D, Optimus Pad Prior To MWC

While the MWC is to start officially on 14 Feb, manufacturers like LG and Samsung seem to be too impatient and have already announced their line up for the show there. LG’s line up is pretty interesting thanks to its Optimus range of smartphones which have managed to hog the headlines for the past few weeks. Let us now see what people are looking forward to the most at the MWC. LG had at the CES last month shown off the world`s first dual-core smartphone, the Optimus 2X as well as the Optimus Black – a slim smartphone along with the LG Revolution, its first 4G capable phone.

These would also be showcased at the MWC along with LG’s answer to the iPad in the form of the Optimus Pad. Let’s now take a look again at LG’s lineup for the MWC.

LG Optimus 3D

First off, we have the Optimus 3D which gets a 1GHZ dual core OMAP processor along with dual channel memory. Claimed to pack in the double the graphics prowess than its nearest competitor, the phone also boasts of being the world`s first full 3D experience with capability to record and playback 3D content. It has a huge 4.3-inch WVGA display. The phone is fully DLNA capable and has an HDMI connector to share your HD content with other devices.

LG Optimus Pad

Probably the most important launch for LG at the MWC would be its Android Honeycomb powered tablet, the Optimus Pad. This one has a smaller 8.9-inch display making it a bit easier to carry around than the 10 inch monsters like the iPad and the Motorola Xoom. At the same time, it is larger than the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the BlackBerry Playbook. The Optimus Pad gets Full HD 1080p decoding capabilities. It has a 1280 x 768 WXGA resolution widescreen display that should be crisper than the ones on the Xoom and the iPad – thanks to its smaller screen.  Inside, the number crunching bit is handled by a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor. It also gets the world’s first built-in 3D camera

LG Optimus 2X

The Optimus Pad aside, this is undoubtedly the phone I have been looking forward to. The Optimus 2X is the world’s first smartphone powered by the dual-core Tegra 2 system-on-a-chip. It is also the first phone, a landmark device that can capture videos at a full 1080p resolution. It supports HDMI mirroring that expands content on external displays to Full HD quality.

LG Optimus Black

The Optimus Black is LG’s answer to the thim smartphones out there. LG claims that since its introduction at the CES, it has already received 2 million pre orders for this device.  number that has raised our eyebrows.  This one gets a 4-inch NOVA display and a front facing 2 mp camera at a host of features.

LG sure has a formidable line up if devices at the MWC and thanks to these, it hopes to turn around the losses it incurred in 2010. This, in the same period where competitor and fellow Korean manufacturer, Samsung raked in huge profits with its Android range of devices.
