LG Optimus 3D official: 3D display & camera, coming to MWC 2011

LG has presumably realised that, with their 3D smartphone secret out of the bag, they may as well cash in prior to the LG Optimus 3D's official reveal at Mobile World Congress later this month. The company has pushed out a short press release confirming the Optimus 3D, along with a dual-lens 3D camera, HDMI and DLNA support. The display - which is believed to be 4.3-inches - is a glasses-free one, naturally; having to slap on a pair of 3D specs would slow things down somewhat. All the details - and our own hands-on feedback - at MWC very soon. 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.

LG’s Optimus 3D caught in wild?

A photo of what's believed to be the LG Optimus 3D has leaked, though the identity of the mysterious smartphone - or, indeed, it's expected glasses-free 3D display - have not been confirmed. According to Phandroid's tipster the smartphone has a touchscreen larger than 4-inches - likely to be 4.3-inches like the Desire HD - together with a "dual-core processor and multi-channel RAM." Given the Optimus 2X runs on NVIDIA's Tegra 2, it doesn't seem too unlikely that LG would have picked the same chip for the Optimus 3D; still, we'll have to wait until the expected debut at MWC 2011 to find out for sure. Android Community will be at the Barcelona show bringing back all the details!

LG Optimus 3D gets premature listing ahead of MWC 2011

LG's promised Optimus 3D smartphone has shown up ahead of its expected MWC 2011 debut, after having been teased earlier this month. The Dutch arm of retailer The Carphone Warehouse has put up a coming soon page for the smartphone, though exact details on the LG Optimus 3D are still in short supply. Back at CES, LG's, marketing strategy and planning team director James Choi confirmed that "3D mobile display is one technology that isn’t 3-5 years down the road … You'll be very surprised shortly, of an actual working 3D device from LG." Mobile devices are arguably more suited to 3D than bigger screens like TVs, given they can use glasses-free autostereoscopic panels rather than demanding special eyewear. [via AllAboutPhones]
