LG Thrill 4G shows up in Best Buy's buyer's guide

LG Thrill 4G shows up in Best Buy's buyer's guide
AT&T's LG Thrill 4G might have been delayed until August 21st, but meanwhile it also showed up in Best Buy's product catalog for August under the LG Thrill 3D moniker. The 3D-enabled handset was put up for pre-order at RadioShack, but the initial release date of August 7th was pushed and pre-orders were extended to August 15th.

A tipster of ours now confirmed that Best Buy is expected to launch the phone for pre-order soon, but had no further details about the device. Well, we already know plenty about the phone, which was launched as the LG Optimus 3D outside of the States. The 4.3-inch display on this powerhouse supports glasses-free 3D using a parallax barrier, which acts as a slit plate on top of the screen filtering content so your left and right eye see a slightly different variation of the same picture, thus achieving the 3D effect. 

The Android-running LG Thrill 4G comes with a dual 5-megapixel camera setup for 3D image and video capture. Design-wise the phone mimics the Optimus 3D with both its solid heft and bulkiness – it weighs a considerable 5.92 ounces, but in exchange packs a lot of horsepower. Are you getting the Thrill 4G?

Thanks, optikawn!

Agreed, but I think its a good phone, but the EVO 3D is better... Cuz its got gingerbread and sense UI. I can't beleive LG is still dishing out froyo droids when ICS is iminnent. They do however make cheap, sexy phones which aren't actually that bad.

Lg tries to make good devices, but face it their hardware sucks, no matter how impressive they try and make their UI (if you even consider it to be impressive), they make a crappy plastic shell, when they start using premium materials they might get some revenue.

Remember though the Thrill will be the only phone with dual core cpu/ dual channel ram and graphix. The evo only got dual core cpu. So at the time when it comes out the thrill will be the only phone with all that... And at that time if u have AT&T the 2 best phones they have will be the Thrill and the Samsung Infuse, witch also the Infuse is their fastest phone in terms of HSPA+ speeds and only one they have with a 1.2ghz cpu even though its only single core its super fast. And as stated the Thrill will be their most powerfull phone at time of release. Actuly the most power phone the U.S has cause no others have dual everything. And if u noticed in the pic i sent in it only says android not a version number, the reason for the delay may be because so many people were complaining that it was commin with 2.2 so they may have held it back to change it to 2.3 witch would be awesome. But right now nno one knows but it will be here in less than 2 weeks and we will find out, hopefull we will get more answeres befor then. Dont get me wrong i love HTC i was buyin them befor people knew what they were i actuly had the first few HTC released in the US and loved em no look at them basicly the best phone maker there is. still have my orginal FUZE and TILT sittin here on my desk haha.... but I also have AT&T and dont like ne of the HTCs they have right now so im def grabin the Thrill when it comes out. ILL always love windows and think its the best to use so what id really like to see is a nice 4G windows 7 mango phone with 3D and 4.5 inch screen and maby slide out keyboard so u have use of the whole screen and there u go full fledge portable PC. I think in the end windows may take top spot in this game even more so once windows 8 is out and windows phone 8 is out with full LTE kickin 100mbs with phones with 4.5/4.7/5.0/5.3 inch screens...
