LG introduced glasses-free Optimus 3D phone at the Mobile World Congress after the super fast Optimus 2X and super bright Optimus Black. In couple of months we'll get to see these Google Android OS based devices in the market for sale. Meanwhile LG continues to work on new smartphone models. An upcoming LG 3G Mobile Phone with model number LG-P999 got Bluetooth certification
and it had already received Wi-Fi certification
last year in October.
The LG-P999 smartphone model must've been tested along side the Optimus 2X LG-P990, Optimus Black LG-P970 and Optimus 3D LGP920 smartphones. At the Bluetooth SIG listing, the LG handset is listed with model number LG-P999 and carries a description - LG 3G Mobile Phone. This handset will have Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and as the description suggests would support 3G network. It is listed as an end product so we can expect LG to show it any time soon.
Same LG smartphone had recieved Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n certification four months back in October 2010. Don't get confused for the LG-P999DW is the same model with some region specific variations may be.
Ellis Markov developed Android App - GPUBench OpenGL ES 2.0 Benchmark scores list
has the LG-P999 at fifth place while LG-P990 aka Optimus 2X tops the charts. So we can assume the the LG-P999 would have powerful GPU and a dual-core CPU. Don't go by the scores for this OpenGL benchmarching app does give vast performance difference between devices that aren't that bad. For instance, Samsung Galaxy S and iPhone 4 despite of having top of the line GPUs housed struggle with low scores. It's quite possible the RFS Filesystem in Galaxy S and the iOS filesystem would be the reason for low OpenGL scores. Clearly Samsung Galaxy S scores less than it's potential with the Quadrant tests. However, the LG handset's listing is enough evidence that it's being tested out there.
The LG-P999 handset will most probably run Google Android 2.2 Froyo and would be upgradable to Gingerbread 2.3 update. List also mentions a LG-P925 model that might be another version of LG-P920 Optimus 3D.
Probably LG might be working on a high-end 3G smartphone running Android for countries including India that won't have 4G or LTE cellular networks till at least 2-3 years.
