AT&T flashes 3D-capable LG Thrill 4G phone

Carrier will offer two new smartphones in the coming months: the HTC HD7S and the LG Thrill 4G, which will feature glasses-free 3D game play and 3D video and photo shooting.

AT&T will add two smartphones to its lineup in the coming months, including one with 3D capability, the company said today.

The LG Thrill 4G boasts a 1GHz dual-core, dual-channel processor. It will also feature 16GB of storage, thanks to 8GB on-board and an 8GB microSD card. As one might expect from its name, the device will be capable of connecting to AT&T's 4G network. It will sport Android 2.2 and a 4.3-inch display.

Perhaps the most interesting feature of the Thrill 4G is its 3D functionality. According to AT&T, the device boasts a "glasses-free 3D experience," in addition to the ability to capture 3D video and snap 3D photos. Video recording in 3D is available at 720p resolution, while 2D recording will output at 1080p resolution. The device will also come with access to the LG 3D Space for people to access 3D games, videos, and images, AT&T said. One downer: the only image available so far is too small to actually offer any detail.

But if the LG Thrill 4G sounds familiar, there's a good reason for that. Last month, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the company unveiled a smartphone called the Optimus 3D with all the same features as the Thrill 4G. That device is scheduled to be available in Europe in the second quarter.

As for the LG Thrill 4G, neither AT&T nor LG are saying how much the device will cost when it launches "in the coming months."

AT&T also unveiled the HTC HD7S today. The device features a 4.3-inch display and a 1GHz processor. It will run Windows Phone 7 when it launches "in the coming weeks." AT&T did not reveal a price for the HD7S.
