LG Optimus 3D 2 coming in 2012, Ultra-thin at just 7mm

LG has been talking 3D lately and we are now getting a few hints that they are already working on the successor to their recently released LG Optimus 3D known as the LG Thrill 4G on AT&T. You can see our full review here. Along with keeping up with any faster processors and other manufacture offerings they also plan to make the Optimus 3D 2 ultra-thin.

Thanks to some details coming out of an interview by Pocket-lint one of the developers of the LG Optimus 3D, Dr. Henry Noh, explains that the LG Optimus 3D in its current form isn’t the “slimmest and sexiest phone on the street.” That and LG doesn't want 3D or LG phones to be known as bulky devices. Next year they plan to bring an updated powerhouse glasses-free 3D Optimus in a lightweight and thin frame, they are aiming for around 7mm thin making it one of the thinnest devices around.

For now things like an upgraded dual-core processor, maybe a bigger screen, and any other hardware details are still not known. They don't want to ruin the surprise just yet do they? I have a feeling the next 3D phone from LG is still pending based on how well the Thrill 4G ends up selling and if the entire 3D technology actually takes off. While I love the option and the feature, it's not something I'd use enough to consider it a requirement on my next purchase -- but then again everyone is different and has different needs.

LG hits that most phones will be boring and similar to what we are seeing now, and they plan to have an edge with 3D. What do you guys think?

    I bought an LG Optimus 3D phone just over 2 weeks ago. I love the thing. So mush so that I sold my Samsung Galaxy S II today and will be selling my HTC Sensation shortly. Neither can do 3D…..for photos, video or viewing or games. They are dead to. I know not everyone is into 3D, but for me – I love it.

    But what I really want now is a dual-core 1.5GHz 3D phone with a GB of RAM and 2 x 8mp cameras.

    I love the 3d option but i think i’ll just wait for the samsung galaxy note because of that big screen and stylus support.

    Am I the only person who actually likes the slightly chunky feel of my Optimus 3D?  I don’t like thin, I am more likely to get cramp and drop it or accidentally snap it in my pocket.

    The ONLY things I would like improving (other than CPU, RAM, etc) is camera quality, ideally a proper camera shutter button (with the half-press to focus) but most of all I REALLY want a qwerty keyboard rather than just making it thinner.

    I HATE typing on touch screens as while it seems fine at first, my accuracy seems to drop over time.  It would also make playing games much more fun.
