Having unveiled the world’s first dual-core handset at the Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas recently LG has officially announced it is to out another world’s first at the upcoming Mobile World Congress as it prepares the arrival of the first 3D smartphone.
Dubbed the LG Optimus 3D the mooted extra-dimensional handset has repeatedly been rumoured and even snapped in the recent weeks with the first official word from LG on the device now proclaiming: "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."
As well as featuring the much expected glasses-free 3D display, LG has confirmed the upcoming device, yet to be priced or dated for UK arrival, will tout a dual-lens snapper allowing for 3D photographs and content to be generated direct from the handset.
Discussing the imminent device arrival, pegged for the opening of Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona on February 14th, LG announced: "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."
