LG’s up and coming Android Smartphones will now let users enable users take footage and upload to the video site – all in 3D – but without the need for pesky glasses.
“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, ” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO of LG Mobile.
LG’s new Optimus, which is to have its debut at the Mobile World congress in Barcelona later today, is powered by a unique “tri-dual” Configuration — dual-core, simultaneous dual-channel and dual-memory, and will be the first mobile device ever to provide YouTube 3D experience.
It also comes with 4.3-inch 3D screen and features a dual-lens camera, executives told ChannelNews.
It has an HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) connector and supports the DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) which allows content to be pushed around a home from tablet to DLNA TV or PC.
“Our partnership with YouTube will ensure that our customers can easily generate and access ample 3D content,” said LG Mobile CEO.
This latest partnership is part of a broader push into 3D entertainment, the tech companies said in a statement.
“3D technology has traditionally been reserved for the major Hollywood movie studios,” said Francsico Varela, Head of YouTube Platform Partnerships.
“With the new Optimus 3D anyone anywhere in the world can shoot 3D videos, upload them to YouTube and share them with their friends.”
The Android based mobile will be available globally starting in Europe early in the second quarter of 2011.
2 million retail pre-orders have already been placed for the Optimus in Black since CES last month, when it was first revealed, says LG.
