LG ready to unveil 'world's first' full 3D smartphone at Mobile World Congress
Thursday 03 February 2011
During this year's Mobile World Congress, a four-day event showcasing cutting-edge mobile technology, LG will take the wraps off the world's first full 3D smartphone, the Optimus 3D.
"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," says LG in a February 1 press release.
LG calls its Optimus 3D the "most advanced smartphone to date" and says it will be capable of recording 3D video and taking 3D photos thanks to its dual-lens camera.
The 3D-capable smartphone will also come with a glasses-free LCD panel for autostereoscopic viewing and will provide consumers with many ways to share their media through diverse connectivity options such as HDMI and DLNA.
Android blog Phandroid posted an exclusive picture of a device they believe is the LG Optimus 3D just days earlier, sparking rumors of a MWC announcement.
While LG touts the device as a world first, both Sharp and Samsung released glasses-free 3D mobiles in 2010.
Sharp showed off two versions of its glasses-free smartphone Galapagos for the Japanese market in November 2010 and Samsung unveiled its W960 feature phone in the South Korean market back in May 2010.
LG differentiates its 3D mobile offering by providing a "full" experience - one in which users can view content in 3D and create their own 3D images and videos on the go thanks to the dual-lens camera.
LG will provide live demos of the Optimus 3D in booth #8B178 at the Mobile World Congress from February 14 to 17 in Barcelona, Spain.
