When it comes to televisions and building a bet, LG Optimus 3D is all the rage — or so greedy manufacturers would have us judge. Some of their excitement has now spilled over into the mobile-phone world. Step forwards, the LG Optimus 3D. It’s the first smart phone to confirmation and play back 3D video and photos.
The question remains, even if, whether users want 3D capability in their phones. We’ll find out when the Optimus 3D arrives in Europe in May. At launch, it will run Apparatus 2.2, with a 2.3 update to follow.
The Optimus 3D packs a 4.3-inch touchscreen that displays 3D cinema and videos without the need for daft glasses. It’s a standard, 2D Apparatus smart phone until you press the 3D hot-key on the side, which opens an full of life arcade of facial appearance known as the ’3D zone’. From there, you can access 3D apps, videos, games and the camera. The phonecomes with three pre-biased games from Gameloft, and video can be uploaded frankly to YouTube’s 3D channel via a dedicated app.
The Optimus 3D contains a dual-core Texas Instruments Omap 4430 chipset. That makes it commanding enough to handle 3D video tape and playback, as well as all the usual smart-phone gubbins, like quick Web browsing, steering and building a bet.
The Optimus 3D packs two 5-megapixel cameras, set 24mm apart so that they confirmation at vaguely different angles to start a 3D look. You can see the 3D look on the cover as you confirmation, and you can change the depth too, so the look is at its best.
The 3D look looks cool under fastidious circumstances — particularly, when a depiction has plenty of depth. We tried out the built-in games, and saw the reputation we were controlling lifted off the background in a pleasing make. On-cover status bars, like shape or speed, seem to hover just above the cover.
At Mobile World Congress, LG also showed off what it called ’3D ebooks’. The demo translation we saw wasn’t really an ebook, as it didn’t contain any text, but it did show off the 3D look well, thankfulness to full of life pop-ups.
The 5-megapixel cameras can capture 720p high-classification video confirmation in 3D. Standard, 2D video is recorded at a higher, 1080p pledge. The Optimus 3D has an HDMI connection so you can productivity video to your box. You can watch 3D confirmation on a 3D TV, but you’ll need glasses.
