LG Thrill 4G Video Hands-On: Slick 3D Displayed with Dual-Core Power

We were fortunate to spend a little more hands-on time last night with the upcoming LG Thrill 4G for AT&T. This hot dual-core superphone boasts a big 4.3-inch screen capable of showcasing content in glasses-free 3D. It also snaps photos and shoots video in three dimensions and is designed to make sharing 3D entertainment easy.

There’s still no word yet on how much the LG Thrill 4G will cost or exactly when the 3D handset will hit store shelves beyond the end-of-summer time frame. Still, we did learn that the powerful phone runs a 1-GHz dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP4 ARM Cortex A9 CPU. In addition, it has Android version 2.2.2, but version 2.3 Gingerbread will be available “shortly” after launch.

An LG representative was also quick to point out that the phone uses triple D technology meaning dual-core, dual channel, and dual memory for superior performance. He also highlighted an exclusive partnership with YouTube 3D which the Thrill 4G accesses with a special button. Users have the ability to convert 3D pictures down to 2D too before sharing them so as not to annoy friends with non-3D devices.

Indeed in our demo the LG Thrill 4G looked fast and responsive. It also felt similar in size to its main rival the HTC Evo 3D, though slightly more flat. Check out the video yourself and decide what you think of the LG Thrill 4G.
