LG is hoping to differentiate itself from its smartphone and tablet rivals with the release of the Optimus 3D handset and Optimus tablet, which sports the rumoured 3D camera.
The smartphone offers dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory architecture (which LG termed a tri-dual configuration) as well as the 3D platform, allowing for recording, viewing and sharing of 3D content, which LG says is the world’s first.
The company said the Optimus 3D will be rolled out globally starting with Europe early in the second quarter. The phone will initially be released with Android 2.2 (Froyo) and will be upgradable to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread).
3D Camera & Display
The handset offers a dual-lens 5-megapixel camera, which the Optimus 3D’s 4.3-inch WVGA display uses to display 3D content without the use of special glasses. Users can navigate through the device’s 3D interface with the click of LG’s 3D Hot Key, which presents five 3D-dedicated user interfaces, including Gallery, Camera, Game&Apps, YouTube 3D and 3D Guide.
Captured 3D content is shared via an HDMI 1.4 connection to 3D TVs and monitors and also is compatible with Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) Certified products. In addition, users can upload and stream 3D content and share each other’s creations on YouTube’s dedicated 3D channel.
“Backed by a combination of superb performance and full 3D, we’re excited about the prospects of the LG Optimus 3D taking the smartphone experience to a much higher level,” said Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Mobile Communications. “We’ve incorporated every feature for the power user, and we think they’ll be pleased with what they see.”
