Three has unveiled monthly contract prices for the LG Optimus 3D – the first-ever glasses free 3D capable phone to hit the UK.
Available to order now, Three is offering the handset for free from £35 on a two-year contract. Pick it up on the One Plan, which includes all you can eat mobile data to enable you to make the most of your handset’s web and media smarts, and it's £40 per month over the same contract term.
The Optimus 3D uses the same stereoscopic technology as the Nintendo 3DS and dual rear-mounted five megapixel cameras to allow users to capture 3D stills and video footage. It’s also capable of playing 3D games, with a selection of titles pre-loaded, and offers 3D video playback.
Also on board the smartphone is a 4.3-inch qHD display, 32GB of expandable storage via microSD card support and a powerful 1.2GHz Qualcomm dual core processor to keep everything ticking over buttery smooth.
The phone ships with the older 2.2 version of Android out of the box. However, an update to the all-new, all-singing, all-dancing Gingerbread edition (Android 2.3) is scheduled for late September and promises to be well worth the wait.
That’s because when it does arrive it’ll allow Optimus 3D owners to turn their library of 2D photos to 3D and will be able to convert 2D games to 3D. Naturally, it'll also bring with it the revamped virtual keyboard and improved copy and paste that 2.3 adds to common or garden Android kits too.
