The handset is a 3D pioneer in the cell phone space, but the company is promising more Android-powered premium smartphones with 3D video capture and playback that doesn't require glasses - now you will be able to upload and share that juicy 3D content instantly with others on YouTube.
“The Optimus 3D is LG’s newest flagship smartphone. It is our answer to two major pain points of the current 3D experience - limited mobility and specialized glasses. Furthermore, our partnership with YouTube will ensure that our customers can easily generate and access ample 3D content,” said the President and CEO of LG's mobile division.
As per Francsico Varela, Head of YouTube Platform Partnerships: “3D technology has traditionally been reserved for the major Hollywood movie studios. With the new LG Optimus 3D anyone anywhere in the world can shoot 3D videos, upload them to YouTube, and share them with their friends. We’re excited to see the creative videos our community captures and shares with this new technology.”
The LG Optimus 3D is powered by a first-in-class “Tri-Dual” setup - a dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP4 chipset, "simultaneous dual-channel and dual-memory", and it will be the pilot cell phone capable of the YouTube 3D experience.
The LG Optimus 3D handset will come to Europe early in Q2, and roll out elsewhere shortly afterwards.
