Remember that stretch of a few weeks in 2011 when everyone was thrilled about lenticular 3D displays? LG does, and would like you to think that it's still every bit as exciting. That's the inescapable conclusion behind the LG CX2, AKA the Optimus 3D 2, newly leaked by ETnews. The phone is likely strutting its three-dimensional stuff prior to an official debut at Mobile World Congress. According to the leak, the new screen greatly improves both the 3D effect and legibility, thanks to an IPS-based screen.
For those that thought the entire dual camera 3D idea for smartphones was just a fad and something that would quickly pass -- maybe it wont. Apparently LG is preparing their next flagship 3D model to follow up their somewhat successful Optimus 3D. Reports are calling this smartphone the LG CX2 and we have a few press images too.
