CTIA 2014 Super Mobility Week: LG Thrill 4G

1:52 /

At CTIA 2011, Nicole Lee looks at the first-ever 3D smartphone in the country without the need for glasses.

-I'm Nicole Lee, Senior Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the LG Thrill 4G--the first-ever 3D smartphone to come to the US. This is essentially AT&T's version of the LG Optimus 3D. As you can see on the front, it has a very attractive 4.3-inch WVGA display, and it's 3D; when you press the 3D button on the side here to enter into the 3D app mode that lets you get access to a variety of 3D apps. This includes a variety of 3D games and apps, and you can also upload 3D videos to YouTube. The 3D on the Thrill 4G looks amazing. Even though you can't really see on the camera here, it does really pop out in real life. You don't need any glasses to view the 3D effects. Just your own eyes will do. On the back of the phone are two 5-megapixel cameras that can record in 3D. It can record 3D in 720p and 2D in 1080p. The OS is Android 2.2 Froyo, but AT&T has said that it will be upgradable to Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The LG Thrill 4G, as the name suggests, is compatible with AT&T's HSPA Plus or 4G network. The LG Thrill 4G is available later this year. We don't yet know the pricing and availability however. The LG Thrill 4G has a very speedy, dual core processor. I'm Nicole Lee and this has been a first look at the LG Thrill 4G.
