LG takes us “into the new dimension” (from MWC 2011)

LG takes us “into the new dimension” (from MWC 2011)

As promised in a recent press release, LG’s Optimus 3D has been revealed at the Koreans’ Mobile World Congress stall. Like Nintendo’s imminent 3DS, it uses autostereoscopic technology, so there’s no need to wear glasses like an idiot.

LG had previously declared that the Optimus 3D would be their “most advanced smartphone to date”. We weren’t sure if that assertion was based entirely on the 3D-ness of it all, but we’ve now learned that the LG Optimus 3D will boast dual-core processing juice. OMAP4, to be specific.

The LG Optimus 3D has a 4.3in screen, 5MP camera and 8GB of memory. Interestingly, it can record video in 3D. Standard 2D video plays back in full 1080p, while 3D plays in 720p.

Gaming will presumably be a big draw on the LG Optimus 3D. The handset will come with three titles pre-loaded, courtesy of Gameloft. They are: N.O.V.A. (a favourite of Mobot), Lets Golf 2 and Asphalt Origins, all in glorious 3D.

Three and Vodafone have confirmed that they’ll offer the LG Optimus 3D in the UK. We don’t have an official release date or price just yet, but in the meantime the cheeky devils at Three have put together a teaser video on YouTube.

The LG Optimus 3D joins our ever-increasing Things We Want To Play With list. Look out for more pics once we get our hands on it.
