The LG Optimus 3D is a breakthrough smartphone bringing together high performance with full 3D experience We have seen a lot of innovative ‘world’s first’ technologies in mobile phones lately, namely the Motorola ATRIX netbook/ smartphone and the Sony Ericsson Play. LG has also joined the bandwagon with

their latest addition to the Optimus lineup – the Optimus 3D, which features the world’s first dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory architecture as well as the first 3D mobile phone platform allowing

The highly advanced display allows users to view 2D (up to 1,080p) and 3D (up to 720p) multimedia content

for recording, viewing and sharing of 3D content. The Optimus 3D will be rolledout globally starting with Europe early in the second quarter of this year.

Similar to the Nintendo 3DS, the 4.3-inch WVGA display of the Optimus 3D faithfully recreates the 3D experience without the use of glasses

The Optimus 3D’s dual 5MP lens camera allows users to capture and record their best moments as images and videos in 3D anytime, anywhere

Making use of its 3D recording to its fullest, users can easily upload and stream 3D content and share each other’s creations on YouTube’s dedicated 3D channel

Users of the Optimus 3D can navigate through the device’s 3D interface with the click of LG’s unique 3D Hot Key which presents five 3D-dedicated UIs, including Gallery, Camera, Game&Apps, YouTube 3D and 3D Guide

The secret to the Optimus 3D’s superior three-dimensional showcase lies in LG’s unique ‘tri-dual’ configuration – dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory. This configuration enables improved performance and run-time compared to smartphones offering 1GHz dual-core processors. The reason behind this is that unlike single-channel, single-memory dual-core smartphones, the Optimus 3D simultaneously transfers data between the dual-core and dual-memory. This configuration offers significant performance benefits and allows users to browse Web pages, multitask between programs, play games at a higher frame rate and enjoy movies much more smoothly.
