Our friend Rob Jackson of Phandroid has received an image of what he believes to be the LG Optimus 3D, a device we just learned of last week and one that is expected to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress next month.
The device features a display larger than 4-inches and looks like a combination of LG’s Optimus 2X and Motorola’s Droid X. LG just announced a 4.3 inch WVGA (480×800 pixel resolution) glasses-free 3D display at CES, so that could be the part that gets used in this rumored 3D phone.
Rob’s tipster also revealed that the phone has a dual-core processor, but we do not know which one yet. LG went with NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 for the Optimus 2X, but we have already heard that the Optimus 3D is not a Tegra device. It is more likely that the Optimus 3D could feature Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon or Texas Instruments’ OMAP4430.
LG recently teased that their MWC press event would bring us “into the new dimension”, so many believe they are working on 3D devices. Recent comments from company executives have also helped to keep the 3D buzz going.
“With our key understanding of displays, entertainment and mobile technology, LG is looking forward to debuting this exciting new way to watch 3D movies or play games on your mobile phone,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Mobile Communications Company. “LG sees tremendous growth potential in the 3D mobile display market.”
Whatever happens, I just got a little more excited to attend LG’s press event on February 14th. What do you think they have up their sleeves?
