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

We want to give customers a quality mobile experience and address the industry issues that frustrate them. 

We were the first UK network to introduce all-you-can-eat data and offer 4G at no extra cost. We let customers roam abroad with their domestic bundle for no extra charge and do not charge for calling 0800 numbers.

We launched 4G in 2014 and plan to have 50 cities and 200 towns covered by 4G by December 2014. By the end of 2015 98% of the population will be able to access 4G through a combination of new sites and deploying new spectrum.
