LG Optimus 3D official with dual-lens camera, details scarce

01 February, 2011

Forget the pinch of salt, the 3D-enabled LG Optimus 3D is official. It's at the teaser announcement stage right now, the full reveal won't happen until February 14 at the MWC when LG will takes us "into the new dimension".

Last Tuesday we started piecing things together and were convinced that LG is readying a 3D-capable smartphone - 3D-enabled (as in stereoscopic not 3D as 3D graphics) Tegra 2 from NVIDIA and a 4.3" 3D mobile display were pretty telling and so were some other things.

Then yesterday an alleged photo of the Optimus 3D leaked (the one on the left).

Today, we see LG issuing an official press release giving us teasing details on the LG Optimus 3D. They promise a glasses-free 3D LCD display and HDMI and DLNA for sharing 3D content.

Of course, LG is aware that there's not much 3D content around, so the Optimus 3D will feature a dual-lens camera capable of capturing stereoscopic shots and videos. There's nothing on resolution so far, but we've heard rumors that each cam will be 8 megapixels.

More details will be released at the MWC and there will be a live demo - then it should officially become the first 3D smartphone. By the way, there's a good chance that LG will announce a 3D-capable tablet too along with the LG Optimus 3D.
