New Delhi: LG has announced the launch of a new phone - Optimus 3D Cube, which is the next version of its already exisiting Optimus 3D smartphone, though it will only ship to South Korea right now.

The new Optimus 3D Cube will come with NFC (Near Field Communication) capability and LG Tag Plus (Tag +) which allows the phone to switch to different modes like sleep mode, office mode, auto mode when placed to the corresponding NFC tag.
LG also claims that the smartphone has the brightest 3D display with 520 (2D) / 250 (3D) Nitro brightness, in fact LG has already filed to get the entry into Guinness Book of World Records for this.
The phone is priced at 847,000 won (Korean currency) which is approximately Rs 37,000.
