Mobile World Congress 2014: LG Optimus 3D

3:07 /

The Optimus 3D smartphone builds on the Optimus 2x and Optimus Black that LG announced last month at CES. You'll find a similar design candy bar design in basic black. The 4.3-inch display takes up the most real estate, but four touch navigation elements sit just below.

-Hi! I'm Kent German, senior editor at cnet.com. I'm here at Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, Spain and I wanna show you LG's new Optimus 3D. Here it is finally. It is built on the previous Optimus 2X and Optimus Black that we saw at CES, but it does have a very nice design. It's thin. It's very solid. It has a good feeling in the hands. It is a 4.3-inch display, so it's really bright and colorful. There are multiple screens of course that you can cycle through and you get widgets and music player. You can add widgets, short folders, shortcuts, everything that you'd expect in a phone. Right now this particular phone is on trial, but when the phone really comes out, it will run on Gingerbread, so that's important to know. So Gingerbread is really making some traction here which is nice. Down below, you have 4-touch controls. On the side, there is a microUSB port and a HDMI port and on the back, you'll see it has 2 cameras. Now, why 2 cameras? That's for shooting 3D video. This phone will actually show 3D video. You don't need glasses for that. Kind of see that the icon is flying towards you, so for 3D effect. You know, it's probably not like watching a full 3D movie of course, but it is a bit of a different effect and that is actually something you can see. I was so skeptical about 3D on the phone about how's gonna work, but this actually does in some ways. In the interior menus, you do have a simple icon based design. If you go to the messaging, you can see that there is a virtual keyboard, so you don't have a physical keyboard with this phone. So, here we're gonna see some 3D video. Like I said, it might not work-- it might not show up well on this camera, but you can see that you are getting a little bit of an effect. So, I think it works pretty well actually. All in all, it does look pretty cool. I guess at a 3D video I was pretty skeptical about but it seems like it works well. I'm Kent German from Mobile World Congress and this is the LG Optimus 3D.
