  • 01-02-2011

Global announcement, 1 February 2011 - LG will unveil the world’s first full 3D smartphone, the LG Optimus 3D handset, at the 2011 Mobile World Congress - offering consumers a full 3D experience in the palm of their hands. South African consumers can expect to experience the LG Optimus 3D from June 2011


This highly anticipated LG Optimus 3D mobile phone addresses the lack of 3D content worldwide by providing users with a dual-lens camera for 3D recording so users have the power to create and produce their very own 3D multimedia material. This, LG’s most advanced smartphone to date, offers a complete 3D platform and a glasses-free 3D viewing experience on its LCD panel (meaning you no longer have to wear oversized 3D glasses to see a 3D-enabled mobile world). It also features diverse connectivity options such as HDMI and DLNA for instant 3D content sharing anytime and anywhere.


“The age of the intellectual mobile phone is here. With the introduction of our full 3D graphics on the new LG Optimus 3D everyone and anyone will have a chance to enjoy a true, out of this world, 3D experience without hassle,’’ says Dr Michelle Potgieter, Marketing and Communications Director of LG Electronics South Africa.


3D is no longer a futuristic possibility it is a real-life interactive solution in your hand. To experience live demos of the LG Optimus 3D at the 2011 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, please visit Booth #8B178 from the 14 - 17 February 2011.
