LG to bring out a 3D phone

Consumer electronics giant Lucky Goldstar will be unveiling the world’s first 3D mobile phone, the Optimus 3D – at this year’s Mobile World Congress, in the next few weeks.

LG’s Optimus 3D will contain a 3D viewable 4.3-inch 480x800 touch screen, where the newest addition to the Optimus range will also have a dual-lens camera, for 3D video recording. This gets around the issue of the lack of 3D content available, as the handset’s owner will be able to create their own media.

LG has just made public this news to the press, after the company announced at Las Vegas’ Consumer Electronics Show their intention to bring a 3D mobile phone to market; presumably off the success of the 3D LCD TV screens, along with technology similar to what’s inside those displays.

The Optimus 3D will be the first of its kind, by offering up a full 3D experience and in much the same way as LG was first with a dual-core handset in the Optimus 2X, where others have now followed suit.

LG has stated the phone will be viewable without the 3D glasses necessary for their TV screens and also other manufacturers’ displays, where the mobile will also contain DLNA for content sharing along with a miniHDMI port.

No other details were on hand as to the exact specifics to the LG Optimus 3D, but One Mobile Ring will be attending the launch event for the handset and will publish detailed coverage of the device.
