Three announces it will range the LG Optimus 3D.

Today Three has confirmed that it will range the LG Optimus 3D, the world’s first 3D smartphone. Innovative new technology makes it possible to watch 3D videos without wearing glasses, thanks to the 4.3” ‘stereoscopic’ touchscreen. The LG Optimus 3D takes playing games to a whole new dimension - which customers can enjoy immediately thanks to the three pre-loaded games. People can also make their own 3D content using the two 5MP cameras on board and then upload it directly to Youtube or watch it on TV via a HDMI connection.

Sylvia Chind, Three’s Head of Branded Devices, says “The LG Optimus 3D makes glasses-free 3D available for everyone. This is LG’s most advanced smartphone yet, which is exactly why we are so proud to offer it to our customers. It allows you to create, download, stream and share amazing quality 3D content – and this is where Three’s award winning network* comes in: with 97.4% population coverage in the UK, our customers will get the quickest and most reliable experience.”

Key features:

  • Glasses-free LCD panel for 3D viewing
  • Record, watch and game
  • 3D enabling dualcore processor TI OMAP 4
  • Full HD 2D (1080p) / 3D (720p) video playback
