LG Singapore announced the launch of their new 3D smartphone, LG Optimus 3D in Singapore last week. It aims to take the smartphone experience into a new territory with its Tri-Dual configuration, that is Dual Core, Dual Channel, Dual Memory. This will allow better performance of the phone when you multi-task, watching movie or playing graphics-intensive games. Oh yah, did we mention that the LG Optimus 3D is a 3D phone where you can record and immediately view 3D photos/videos without the need for those irritating 3D glasses?
The Android Guide is impressed by the fact where you can toggle 2D-3D of videos/photo with a click of a button, so it doesn’t really matter if you were recording/taking videos/images in 2D or 3D format, since it can be easily converted with a click of a button on the phone itself. Having this ‘auto conversion’ also meant that you need not specifically download 3D movies, but you can ‘convert’ any 2D movies to 3D movies with a click of a button. (Hrm, does it means that I can download the latest Harry Potter movie from file sharing site and view it in 3D from now on? )
The phone boasts a 4.3″ WVGA display that offers bright and flicker-free images in HD, up to 1080p in 2D and up to 720p in 3D. It is also announced that a free software for conversion of 2D games to 3D games will be available in the 4th quarter of 2011.
The handset will be preloaded with 3 games & LG World where you are entitled to 7 free downloads. It will be available in Singapore end August at a recommended retail price of S$938.00 (GST inclusive).
