LG Optimus Release May Be Pushed To June

The first ever 3D enabled smartphone, the LG Optimus 3D, may not hit stores until June according to some retailers who will be selling the smartphone.

An article on Techradar (opens in new tab)points out that the online shopping store Clove lists the device’s release date as June 6 on its website.

However, there are plenty of other online retailers such as Expansys and who have listed the device’s availability on their stores as April 25, but with a higher price than on Clove.

On Clove the SIM free handset is priced at £450; on Expansys and the handset will be available for about £510 .

But with Three, Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobil all eager to embrace this “revolutionary” phone, the online price may be beside the point. Consumers can expect to get heavily subsidised, if not free, mobiles with a new contract.

The LG Optimus 3D seems promising with its impressive 4.3 inch glasses-free 3D screen, so you don't have to feel like an idiot while using your 3D phone on the go, and lots of other exciting features. It will be running on the Android 2.2 platform, and chances are that the device will come with an upgraded Gingerbread.

LG has neither confirmed nor denied any of the speculation regarding the device’s possible June release.
