LG Electronics (LG) announced the eagerly-awaited LG Optimus 3D, a high-performance handset offering the world’s first 3D experience on a smartphone. It was first revealed during the Mobile World Congress earlier this year.
The LG Optimus 3D will be priced around Rs. 37,000/- and will be available at leading retail outlets from September 2011.
The LG Optimus 3D introduces a number of innovative “first” technologies, including the world’s first dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory architecture as well as the first complete 3D platform enabling recording, viewing and sharing of 3D content.
Superb Performance with Unique “Tri-Dual” Configuration
The hardware specifications of the LG Optimus 3D are a showcase of amazing speed and power made possible with LG’s unique “tri-dual” configuration – dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory. This configuration enables significantly improved performance and run-time compared to other smartphones offering a current 1GHz dual-core processor.
The LG Optimus 3D offers performance benefits as a result of the simultaneous – and faster – transfer of data between the dual-core and dual-memory. Users can multi-task between programs, play games at a higher frame rate and enjoy an immersive movie experience.
World’s First Complete 3D Experience: 3D Recording-Viewing-Sharing
[advt]The LG Optimus 3D has dual 5MP cameras allowing users to capture and record their best moments as images and videos in 3D. The LG Optimus 3D’s 4.3-inch WVGA display faithfully recreates the 3D experience without the use of glasses. The display provides beautiful and enthralling images allowing users to view either 2D (up to 1080p) and 3D (up to 720p) multimedia content.
Users can navigate through the device’s 3D interface with the five 3D-dedicated content categories, including Gallery, Camera, Games & Apps, YouTube 3D and 3D Guide. With the click of the 3D Hot Key mounted on the side of the phone, 3D images and content can be easily switched to 2D for the preferred viewing format.
Captured 3D content is easily shared via an HDMI 1.4 connection to 3D TVs and monitors and also is compatible with DLNA Certified products. What’s more, users can easily upload and stream 3D content and share each other’s creations on YouTube’s dedicated 3D channel (youtube.com/3D).
The phone will initially be released with Android 2.2 (Froyo) and will be upgradeable to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The upgrade schedule will be announced in due course.
