LG Officially Announces Optimus 3D Android Smartphone in the Philippines

LG Optimus 3D

MANILA, PHILIPPINES - LG Optimus 3D, the eagerly awaited and high-performance smartphone offering the world’s first full 3D experience, will be hitting the PH market soon. The LG Optimus 3D introduces a number of innovative “first” technologies, including the world’s first dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory architecture as well as the first 3D platform allowing for recording, viewing and sharing of 3D content.

Superb Performance with Unique “Tri-Dual” Configuration

The LG Optimus 3D is a showcase of superior speed and power made possible with LG’s unique tri-dual” configuration -- dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory. This configuration enables users to enjoy significantly improved performance and run-time compared to smartphones offering 1GHz dual-core processors. Unlike other single-channel, single-memory dual-core smartphones, the LG Optimus 3D offers significant performance benefits as a result of the simultaneous -- and thus faster -- transfer of data between the dual-core and dual-memory. Users can browse web pages, multitask between programs, play games at a higher frame rate and enjoy movies more smoothly and longer than ever before.

Dual-lens 3D camera

“We have taken the smartphone experience to a higher level with LG Optimus 3D’s superior performance and full 3D feature,” said Mr. Lawrence Kim, Head and Vice President of LG Mobile Product Marketing. “Showcasing technological innovation, we are confident that LG Optimus 3D, a phenomenal device and smartphone will provide optimum satisfaction and pleasure to all mobile users.” “Backed by a combination of superb performance and full 3D, we’re excited about the prospects of the LG Optimus 3D taking the smartphone experience to a much higher level,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company. “We’ve incorporated every feature for the power user and we think they’ll be pleased with what they see.”

World’s First Full 3D Experience: 3D Recording-Viewing-Sharing

The LG Optimus 3D’s dual 5MP lens camera allows users to capture and record their best moments as images and videos in 3D anytime, anywhere. The LG Optimus 3D’s 4.3-inch WVGA display faithfully recreates the 3D experience without the use of glasses. The display provides bright and flicker-free images allowing users to view 2D (up to 1080p) and 3D (up to 720p) multimedia content. And users can navigate through the device’s 3D interface with the click of LG’s unique 3D Hot Key which presents five 3D-dedicated UIs, including Gallery, Camera, Game&Apps, YouTube 3D and 3D Guide. Another amazing thing about Optimus 3D is its capability to convert 2D photos and videos to 3D! Not only that, to satisfy and complete your 3D experience, captured 3D contents can be easily shared via an HDMI 1.4 connection to 3D TVs and monitors and also with DLNA Certified products. What’s more, users can easily upload and stream 3D content and share each other’s creations on YouTube’s dedicated 3D channel (
