The Optimus 3D is an innovative new Android smartphone featuring second generation dual core technology and an advanced “Tri-Dual” architecture, offering a full 3D experience in a smartphone form factor, which includes recording, viewing and sharing 3D content.

“A whole new world is opened for consumers in smartphone performance with Tri-Dual architecture,” says Michael Bang, General Marketing Manager for LG Electronics South Africa. “We are sure that the Optimus 3D will attract significant interest from the public and users who want the very latest in smartphone technology and we are excited about 3D as the next big frontier in mobile devices.”

The phone will initially be released with the Android 2.2 (Froyo) Operating System (OS). The hardware will support upgrades to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

The smartphone is a major step forward in the utilisation of full 3D functionality in everyday life – users can record video and images with the built in 3D camera and immediately view content in 3D without the need for special glasses.

LG’s full 3D concept transforms 3D technology from a novelty to a practical tool. 3D recording, viewing and sharing is faster and more convenient with the Optimus 3D and can be enjoyed without cumbersome glasses. LG’s latest smartphone enables owners to capture high quality 3D content with 3D video stabilization technology and real-time misalignment correction algorithm which automatically corrects camera-shake during recording. The smartphone’s wide viewing angle also makes watching videos and movies much more convenient and comfortable.
