CTIA 2011: AT+T announce the LG Thrill 4G and HTC HD7S smartphones
Over at the CTIA mobile event, US mobile network AT&T have announced two interesting new smartphones which will be coming to their network in the coming months.
First up is the LG Thrill 4G, LG’s second 3D handset and a real beast of a smartphone. The Thrill 4G will be the first mobile to launch in the US with a stereoscopic 3D display (4.3-inches), meaning that it doesn’t require 3D glasses to view any 3D content. Its display utilises similar 3D technology to the soon-to-be-released Nintendo 3DS.
Inside the Thrill 4G you’ll find a speedy 1GHz Dual-Core processor, 8GB of internal flash storage, support for MicroSDHC cards and a 5MP camera which records both 2D, 3D and HD video. Despite packing such impressive specifications, LG have opted to release the Thrill 4G will Google’s most used OS, Android 2.2 (otherwise known as Froyo). A spokesperson for AT&T confirmed that the Thrill 4G will be released in the US in the coming months. There’s currently no news on a European release.
Along with the LG Thrill 4G, AT&T announced the HTC HD7S – a Windows Phone 7 handset. Like the LG Thrill 4G, the HD7S will sport a 4.3-inch screen, though HTC have opted for a WVGA Super LCD display type for crystal clear visuals. It’s powered by a 1GHz processor and features a 5MP rear camera with dual-LED flash. The HD7S will run on the latest version of Windows Phone 7, which includes the awaited copy and paste function.
The HTC HD7S will be available in the US very soon, “in the coming weeks” according to the AT&T spokesperson. It’s not yet clear as to whether either of these phones will make it to European shores, but we have our fingers crossed. Especially for the LG Thrill 4G.
