We showed you the first live pictures of the LG Optimus 3D this morning… before the phone had even been officially announced. And guess what? Now LG has gone public with news… and some ridiculously exciting details:
Not only will the Optimus 3D play back 3D content without the need for the viewer to wear glasses for the experience, the Optimus 3D will also include a dual-lens camera for 3D RECORDING. I’m not sure how well the playback or recording will work in reality, but I’m definitely drooling in reality.
Think about it: if one of the main problems with 3D screens is lack of 3D content, LG singlehandedly solves the problem by allowing you to create your own 3D content. I can think of a million entertaining ways to use this technology and I can’t wait to see it on display at Mobile World Congress February 14th to 17th in Barcelona.
Here is the full press release:

LG’s most advanced smartphone to date will feature a dual-lens camera for 3D recording, a glasses-free LCD panel for 3D viewing and diverse connectivity options such as HDMI and DLNA for 3D content sharing anytime, anywhere.
