The CTIA has been seeing a slew of new age devices being put on show. One device that looked so charming is the LG Thrill 4G Smartphone that was displayed by AT&T. The 3D phone – also know as the LG Optimus 3D – will come riding the blazing fast mobile broadband network offered by the carrier.
Aptly named as the Thrill, the device offers 3D features, minus the glasses. The LG Thrill 4G will in fact be the first smartphone eve in the US market that will come with a glasses-free 4.3-inch stereoscopic 3D display. Features include a 1.0-GHz processor and a 5 megapixel camera.
The device will also sport dual-core, dual-channel 1 GHz processor and will come pre-loaded with 16 GB of memory – that could be 8 GB onboard and an additional 8 GB MicroSD card.
The device will have capabilities that will allow 3D video recording at 720p resolution and 2D at 1080p quality. It will also be able to play back video in HD through the HDMI-out port on the device or stream content wirelessly through DLNA technology.
Though the device was shown with Android 2.2 OS, we expect the version to be upgraded by the time it gets rolled out. The release,, we guess, could happen in the next couple of months.
AT&T had a couple of days ago elaborated on the device saying that the Thrill 4G will be an exclusive for the carrier. Are you looking forward to owning the Thrill.
