LG confirmed on Tuesday that it will unveil what it calls “the world’s first 3D smartphone” at Mobile World Congress 2011 later this month. Details are very slim for the time being, but the main attraction on the upcoming LG Optimus 3D will be its glasses-free 3D experience coupled with a dual-lens camera capable of recording video in 3D. The phone will also feature an HDMI-out port and DLNA video streaming capability. LG will become the first to bet on 3D in cell phones and in light of the terrible quarter LG reported last week, we hope consumers will show more interest in 3D smartphones than they have in 3D televisions. Hit the break for LG’s press release.
LG TO UNVEIL WORLD’S FIRST FULL 3D SMARTPHONE AT MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS 2011
3D Recording-Viewing-Sharing of Life’s Precious Moments Anytime, Anywhere
SEOUL, Feb. 1, 2011 – At this year’s Mobile World Congress, LG will unveil the LG Optimus 3D, the world’s first 3D smartphone offering consumers a full 3D experience right in the palm of their hands.
The LG Optimus 3D addresses the lack of 3D content issue — one of the biggest problems facing the 3D market — with a complete platform for a one-of-a-kind experience on a mobile device. LG’s most advanced smartphone to date will feature a dual-lens camera for 3D recording, a glasses-free LCD panel for 3D viewing and diverse connectivity options such as HDMI and DLNA for 3D content sharing anytime, anywhere.
Further details and a live demo of the LG Optimus 3D will be offered at Booth #8B178 at MWC in Barcelona from February 14 to 17.
