LG Optimus 3D - 3D stereoscopic cameras

Amongst the swathe of identikit, big-screen smartphones here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, one phone already stands out. It isn’t because it’s super-powerful, it isn’t because of its industrial design, it’s because it’s the only phone that does something completely different:

3D screen, 3D camera, 3D video, and 3D gaming


Main feature:

  • 3D technology — auto-stereoscopic, parallax barrier 3D screen.
  • You don’t need glasses to view content on the LG Optimus 3D – it comes right out of the screen at you.

Hit the button on the phone’s edge and a 3D menu carousel hovers into view, seeming to rise up out of the screen’s surface. From here you have quick access to all the phone’s 3D features: the camera, the dedicated YouTube 3D app, and a handful of 3D games. When you’re not in one of the 3D apps or viewing 3D material, the screen simply reverts to standard mode.

  • 3D menu
  • Twin autofocus 5-megapixel cameras on the rear, spaced 24mm apart from each other.
  • To shoot in 3D, simply tap a toggle switch in the camera app:
    • in 3D this gives you 1,280 x 720 resolution footage,
    • recorded side-by-side; in 2D the video resolution
    • full HD (1080p).

Once you’ve recorded the footage, there are plenty of options:

  • The phone has an HDMI 1.4 output, so you can pipe recordings directly to your 3D-enabled TV.
  • You can upload with a single tap to YouTube, which supports 3D video; and you can watch those videos, and the rest of YouTube’s 3D content, on the 3D screen courtesy of a dedicated YouTube 3D app included with the phone.

Additional features:

  • The screen is 4.3 in diagonal and a resolution of 480 x 800.
  • The processor – a dual-core, “dual channel” 1GHz Texas Instruments OMAP4 CPU
  • 8GB of storage and 4GB of LP DDR2 RAM

    • measures 68 x 11.9 x 128.8mm (WDH)
    • weighs 168g
    • 1,500 mAh battery
