We’ve known about the LG Optimus 3D for quite some time. It’s the first 3D phone that uses glasses-free 3D technology. We were waiting for the official press release from LG to understand just to what extent the company has integrated 3D technology. And now we know. First, a bit about specs. It’s running with the new TI OMAP 4 dualcore 1GHz chip with PowerVR SGX540 graphics. Here’s some verbiage straight from the press release:
The LG Optimus 3D packs exceptional features with performance in mind, including an advanced dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory architecture. Equipped with a 1GHz OMAP4 dual-core processor and four times more video decoders than competing designs, the LG Optimus 3D doubles the graphics performance of its nearest competitor allowing users to enjoy superb performance while web surfing, running applications and enjoying multimedia content. In addition, the LG Optimus 3D provides the world`s first full 3D experience covering the full spectrum from recording to viewing and sharing 3D content. It features a dual-lens camera that enables users to capture any moment in true 3D which can then be viewed immediately on the 4.3-inch WVGA glasses-free display. Multiple connectivity options including HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) also make it easy for users to transfer their recorded content to other devices.
Sounds powerful! And there we have it: the Optimus 3D will let you record 3D video and photos, then view the content on the glasses-free 3D display. We’re very curious about the quality of the 3D playback (since, hey, glasses-free 3D hasn’t been around very long), plus whether LG has integrated the 3D function with any UI elements. We’ll have a hands-on video of the Optimus 3D to show you in the coming days, where we’ll try to answer these questions!
