LG and AT&T have just announced their latest addition to their line-up of Android handsets the LG Thrill 4G. The handset is basically the AT&T version of the LG Optimus 3D.
The Thrill 4G is powered by a 1GHz dual-core OMAP processor and dual-channel 1GB RAM. The handset features a 4.3-inch glasses free 3D LCD display with WVGA (800×480) resolution. The 3D display can also be toggled to work in 2D only mode.
Preliminary benchmarks suggest that the OMAP processor in the Thrill 4G is powerful than the Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset found in the Motorola ATRIX 4G.
The back of the handset sports dual 5MP camera so that the handset can take 3D pictures and record HD videos in 3D as well. LG will also offer users with 3D content via their own LG 3D Space’ service.
“LG is very excited to offer the LG Thrill 4G to the next generation of thrill seekers. We have taken mobile phone technology to the next level with another first to market feature, this time being 3D capabilities,” said Tim O’Brien, vice president of marketing for LG Mobile Phones. “This device elevates everyday tasks and entertainment to a new dimension of smartphone performance, giving LG Thrill 4G an edge over other devices in the emerging superphone category.”
The usual Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, DLNA, microSD card slot, FM radio and HDMI-Out. The handset will launch with Android 2.2 Froyo, but LG has promised to release the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the handset soon after.
Sadly, LG and AT&T have not mentioned anything about the availability and the pricing of the Thrill 4G, except for saying that the phone will be available in the coming months.
