LG Optimus 3D Made Official

The LG Optimus 3D has also been made official today. This new smartphone is unique in that it has dual-cameras on the back as well as a glasses free 3D screen. The 3D effect works by using a parallax barrier in a similar way to how the Nintendo 3DS screen works. What this does is splits the image in two and sends different details to each eye which in turn, makes the images pop out of the screen when used at a certain distance from your eyes.

Inside the LG Optimus 3D is a dual core 1GHz TI OMAP 4 processor. The 3D screen on the front measures 4.3 inches and is in a WVGA resolution. The parallax barrier can be switched off for times when it isn’t needed to be used. LG has also customized the menus on this device to give a 3D effect. Engadget has a short hands on with the device although you wont see the 3D effect of course.

The UI and device is said to run with no lag which is always good. Other features include 8GB of storage. The cameras on the back (two cameras) are each 5 megapixels and the smartphone can capture video in 3D or 2D. This video can then be played back on screen or via the HDMI connector to a 3D TV if needed.

Quality of the video depends on how you record. If you decide to capture in 2D then you can capture in full 1080p HD. If 3D, you drop down to 720p.

No details of pricing have been given yet and when it launches (early quarter 2), it will run Android 2.2 that will be followed up shortly after with an update to Android 2.3.
