LG Announcing Optimus 3D At Mobile World Congress

Shay got the down low on LG's plans to release a smartphone with glasses-less 3D in the middle of this year, and while details are still scarce, LG has confirmed that they'll be showing off this 3D phone at Mobile World Congress this month.

From the statement:

The LG Optimus 3D addresses the lack of 3D content issue — one of the biggest problems facing the 3D market — with a complete platform for a one-of-a-kind experience on a mobile device. 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.

We'll reserve judgement on just how much demand there is for a 3D smartphone until we see the actual handset, but given that we know it will be running a dual-core processor and offers complete support for 3D, it seems to address a lot of the concerns about the 3D screens.

At CES, some of the lenticular mobile screens showed off by Sharp were impressive, especially given you can adjust the 3D effect (and switch it off altogether. In any case, we'll see the end result at MWC in a couple of weeks.
