We’ve already given you a preview of the device, and now we bring you the launch details – the Android Froyo (upgradeable to Gingerbread)-based LG Optimus 3D will be officially arriving on Indian retail shelves in September, priced at Rs. 37,000.
One can’t help but think the price is a bit too steep – despite the fact that its dual-core processor and other hardware is more or less up to the mark compared to most of the top-end Android devices out there, with the exception of memory, bearing only 512MB of RAM (dual channel memory). The reason behind the pricing is undoubtedly the autostereoscopic, glasses-free 3D screen, and while in our time with it we were quite impressed with it overall, its place as anything beyond a novelty is uncertain – you’ll have to wait for our full review for a comprehensive look at the device’s value for money.
To be noted, also, is that the Optimus 3D comes with dual rear 5MP cameras for 3D image and video recording. Putting it all together, we get what LG calls “Tri-Dual,” dual cameras, dual memory, and a dual core processor.
Speaking on the launch, Mr. Vishal Chopra, Business Group Head, Mobile Communications, LGEIL commented:
“The LG Optimus 3D is super-smartphone which gives our consumer the pleasure of 3D without the special glasses. Its exceptional features combined with super computing capabilities will add a new dimension to the smartphone experience. The smart consumers will now have the power to create, view & share real-life 3D content and the power to explore the world of unlimited possibilities.”
