Following last year’s 3D smartphone, LG Electronics Singapore has introduced the Optimus Max, which is only 9.6 mm thin and weighs 148 grams.

The smartphone ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread but will be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Its 3G network speed has been improved to HSPA+ 21Mbps.

Automatic setting changes 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.

Other 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.
  • Users can convert Google Earth, Google Maps and other road views into 3D using the enhanced 3D Converter.
  • 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.
