    LG unveiled their newest flagship device this morning at MWC, the Optimus 3D. The Optimus 3D features the world's first dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory architecture.

    It features two 5MP rear cameras for 3D recording, which are powered by a dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP 4 processor.The screen is a 4.3-inch, WVGA display that also features the world's first stereoscopic screen, which means glasses free 3D.

    Other specs include 8GB memory, a 1500 mAh battery and DLNA/HDMI support. Full press release after the break.



    LG OPTIMUS 3D USHERS IN A NEW ERA FOR SMARTPHONES
    Breakthrough smartphone brings together high performance with full 3D experience

    Barcelona, Feb. 14, 2011 – LG Electronics (LG) today officially unveiled the eagerly-awaited LG Optimus 3D, the high-performance smartphone offering the world’s first full 3D experience, at Mobile World Congress 2011.

    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.

    “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.

    Captured 3D content is easily shared via an HDMI 1.4 connection to 3D TVs and monitors and also is compatible with DLNA Certified(TM) products. What’s more, users can easily upload and stream 3D content and share each other’s creations on YouTube’s dedicated 3D channel (youtube.com/3D).

    The LG Optimus 3D will be rolled-out globally starting with Europe early in the second quarter. The phone will initially be released with Android 2.2 (Froyo) and will be upgradeable to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). The upgrade schedule will be announced in local markets in due course.

    Key Specifications:
    1GHz Dual-Core Dual-Channel processor (Texas Instruments OMAP4)
    4.3-inch 3D WVGA screen
    8GB memory and 4Gb LP DDR2
    1,500 mAh battery
    5MP dual-lens camera
    2D: 1080p MPEG-4/H.264 recording and playback
    3D: 720p H.264 SEI recording and playback
    HSPA+, DLNA/HDMI 1.4
    H.264, H.263, DivX, MKV, WMV-9, ASF, AVI, 3GP, MP4

    This phone is amazing....

    The only thing that seems to be missing is a front facing camera. Might not be a big deal. But, I'm really looking forward to giving a phone with a FFC a run. Otherwise, I could say with 100% certainty that this would be my next phone.

    We will see though.

    Its the same tegra 2 every other phone has...

    As for dual channel memory controller, i was reading somewhere that quality beats quantity.

    4 Gb ram does seem very steep for a pocket sized phone...i mean come on, what does 4 GB look like for a computer...

    Whoah - a 1500 mAh battery in a 4 gig ram phone?? Lol - people complain about battery life on 1gig. I'd expect this phone'd battery life to tap out at 4 hours under normal use!

    Google searching gives me no information on the amount of ram, i for one stand by the posted number as being false.

    I do take back it being a tegra 2 device, things point to it being a purely TI OMAP 4 (my reasoning was the tegra 2 literally is an omap 4 but with an nvidia gfx core)

    Too bad the only people that care about 3D right now are the manufacturers, not the consumers. Phone has great specs but needs to drop the 3D gimmic.

    That doesn't guarantee it will come to at&t/T-Mobile. It's just that GSM/UMTS/HSPA is more of a "standard" throughout the world, making it a more compatible device. Then there is the whole frequency/spectrum issue...

    Can you turn the 3D off? Everything else seems great, who freaking needs 3D on a phone?
    Heck, I hate 3D movies, I always watch the 2D version down the street.

    I can't upgrade until next year so it's all too early to worry.
    Next year they all be quad core 3 gHz holographic displays.
    Down load speeds that makes streaming content easy and jitter free.

    Keep em coming.

    Yes, the only time it is in 3d is when you're using it in landscape mode and viewing 3d content. The vertical mode is never 3d I believe.

    4 GB of RAM is complete overkill. I run 5 Adobe graphic programs for 3D video development and compositing plus all sorts of other programs and it doesn't phase my 4 gigs on my laptop. Adding it to a phone is going to be a pointless addition with a heavy price tag.

    Don't even get me started on stereoscopic 3D...

    Agreed. But if at some point in the future they have 2 gigs dedictated to run a full blown Linux OS, it would make sense.

    4gigs has to be a misprint, anyway.

    It must have been a misinterpretation of 4G.
    I stand by that there's no way in a physical, practical, or cost effective possibility that this phone could have that much ram
