Speaking to DialToSave, an LG spokesperson confirmed that although both Expansys and Play.com are pitching an April release, the Optimus 3D won’t be coming as soon as we had hoped. They said: “At this stage, it’s looking like a late May launch.”
Still, as the world’s first fully 3D capable smartphone, it’s looking worth the wait. Not only does it sport a 4.3 inch naked-eye display, it also features dual stereoscopic cameras, capable of capturing three-dimensional footage. The highly-specced handset also packs a dual-core 1GHz processor, Android 2.3 OS, dual 5 megapixel stereoscopic cameras, 1080p HD video capture, HDMI and DLNA media sharing, 3G and WiFi connectivity, up to 32GB of storage and a beefy 1500mAh battery.
Once launched later this year, the LG Optimus 3D will be available on pay monthly deals with Orange, T-Mobile and Three, although its pricing is yet to be confirmed. It’s currently available to pre-order SIM free however, with a £492.00 price tag, the same as given to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play.
