The LG Optimus 3D made its debut at Mobile World Congress and we got some hands-on time with the device. As a recap, it’s the first 3D Android smartphone, allowing you to record 3D videos and images, then play them back on the glasses-free 3D WVGA 4.3″ display. It’s packing a dual core TI OMAP 4 CPU with PowerVR SGX540 graphics, plus HDMI and DLNA connectivity.
First impressions of the device? We found the build quality to be exceptional and as far as 3D playback is concerned, the glasses-free display really brings you into that 3D environment, regardless if you watch a demo 3D video or you’re recording your own content using the two stereoscopic cameras at the back.
The object, while do not pop out of the screen like in the ad, help you get immersed into a 3D environment. Of course you need to have a 3D device on which you want to play back the content on. If you don’t, you can switch to classic recording using only one camera, which will give you standard 2D content.
