LG’S New Optimus Max Tops With Both 3d Features And Smartphone Performance
More Than Just Glasses-Free 3D, Optimus Max
Pushes the Boundaries of Power Features and Performance
SINGAPORE, May 29, 2012 – Following in the footsteps of last year’s glasses-free 3D smartphone, LG Electronics Singapore introduces the Optimus Max. With powerful 3D technology and sleeker design, the Optimus Max provides a complete 3D entertainment platform and marks a big leap forward in the ever-expanding 3D ecosystem.
“The LG Optimus Max will provide the maximised 3D mobile experiences for Singaporean users through its powerful performance and innovative 3D entertainment features,” said Mr. Scott Jung, Managing Director of LG Electronics Singapore. “Leveraging on LG’s global leadership in the 3D consumer electronics, the phone boasts the latest 3D innovations without compromising its performance as a powerful smartphone.”
LG Optimus Max is equipped with diverse innovations and offers users with advancements including:
■ True Performance Muscle with Latest Mobile Technologies
LG Optimus Max is a powerful smartphone in both 2D and 3D mode and a pleasure to view with LG’s exclusive brightened display. Its 3G network speed has been also improved to HSPA+ 21Mbps. One of its benefits is its automatic setting changes, which create predefined tags that are customized to certain modes such as car-mode, office-mode or sleep-mode. Depending on location, the predefined tags will automatically adjust various phone settings including Wi-Fi, bluetooth, GPS and sound volume.
Beyond its already innovative features, the public will see some of the future benefits that will be made available through a Maintenance Release or an application available on the LG SmartWorld (www.LGsmartworld.com). Additional features include:
- HD Converter to offer HD quality on a TV connected through MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link), when transforming Open GL-based 2D games and applications to 3D and viewing Google Earth;
- Range Finder which calculates the distance between the camera and the subject as well as the dimensions of an object through triangulation;
- Out-focusing Shot which enhances camera quality beyond that of other smartphones through image processing using depth information.
- Icon Customizer which allows the creation of personalized icons. Images can be selected from the gallery and can be used as icons or shortcuts for a personalized look.
■ True 3D Entertainment Features with Improved 2D-3D Compatibility
Users can convert Google Earth, Google Maps and other road views into 3D using the enhanced 3D Converter. Furthermore, 3D photos and videos captured by the Optimus Max can also be viewed in a single-screen mode in 2D, using the 3D Hot Key mounted on the side of the phone to easily toggle between 2D and 3D. LG also plans to continue expanding video contents, applications and games optimized for the 3D Converter available from the 3D Zone at LG SmartWorld.
■ True Excellence in Design with Slimmer and Lighter Body
The LG Optimus Max’s premium design comes from LG’s commitment to fine details. LG focused on trimming the details of the design of the Optimus Max by keeping only the essentials and eliminating everything else. Measuring only 9.6 mm thin and weighing 148 grams, the lean body with metallic and rounded edges incorporates the best 3D features in addition to desirable 2D features. The Optimus Max includes unique 3D-style cubicle icons which users can customize with their own photos through the Icon Customizer.
The Optimus Max will receive an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from Android 2.3 Gingerbread after the launch. The phone is available at all StarHub and M1 stores at a recommended retail price of S$698.
