LG Optimus 3D To Come To Vodafone, Launches At MWC 2011

The LG Optimus 3D smartphone will be coming to the UK via Vodafone, the British mobile phone operator has confirmed.

Electricpig reports that Vodafone will sell the world's first 3D glassesless smartphone as soon as it is launched.

No details has emerged as to when it will be exactly launched or at what price although, like for the HTC Desire, one can expect a price war to brew between the four main mobile phone operators.

Based on the Optimus 2X, the handset comes with a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset, oodles of RAM, dual lens camera for 3D recording and a glasses-free LCD screen that apparently uses the same technology as the Nintendo 3DS.

The rest of the configuration is equally impressive; the presence of DLNA compatibility, Wi-Fi and HDMI connectivity means that you should be able to stream 3D content to any Wi-Fi enabled 3D television sets.

Vodafone did not say whether the phone will be available on PAYG; given that the LG Optimus 2X carries a SRP of £500 (it can be had for £470 though), we expect the Optimus 3D to come with a hefty premium.

As a matter of interest, users can also preorder the LG Optimus 2X from Vodafone for as little as £30 per month with 300 minutes, 300 texts and 500MB data allowance.

The LG Optimus 3D will be launched at MWC 2011 during an event which will be held on the 14th of February.
