White LG Optimus 3D handset to hit UK via Phones 4U

Phones 4U to stock white LG Optimus 3D

LG’s upcoming 3D smartphone the LG Optimus 3D is to launch with a white form factor exclusive to Phones 4U in the UK, the retailer has revealed.

Announcing the white-hued exclusive as it makes the device available for wannabe owners to register for pre-release updates, Phones 4U has revealed the black Optimus 3D will land in its stores and online outlet “shortly after its UK launch” with the white model to follow in “the coming months.”

Officially unveiled at Mobile World Congress in February, the Optimus 3D is expected to touch down later this month sporting a 4.3-inch glasses-free 3D display similar to that found on the Nintendo 3DS and running Google’s Android 2.2, FroYo, operating system. A 2.3, Gingerbread, update is tipped to land shortly after.

The Optimus 3D’s spec sheet is to be completed by dual-lens 5-megapixel camera capable of generating 3D snaps and HD video content that can be ported to your 3DTV via the inbuilt HDMI port. All of this is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor.

“We’re delighted to announce that we’ll soon be offering our customers the world’s first ever 3D mobile phone in white,” said Phones 4U Marketing Director Russell Braterman. He added: "Our customers are content creators and sharers, and the LG Optimus 3D will for the first time allow them to do what they enjoy most, but in 3D."

Will the LG Optimus 3D and other 3D handsets take off or are 3D phones simply a passing fad? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
