LG details Optimus 3D's dual OMAP4 processor, fast graphics

LG Optimus 3D confirmed ahead of MWC

LG joined in pre-show Mobile World Congress introductions today by detailing the Optimus 3D. The Android-based leader is now known to have a dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP4 chip that not only enables the stereoscopic 3D recording and playback but to claim a performance crown of its own. The graphics core is touted as twice as fast as the "nearest competitor" and has four times as many video decoders.

It earns its namesake through dual rear cameras that can take 3D images as well as a 4.3-inch, glasses-free 3D display. LG has also confirmed that it will share 3D over the HDMI output. In keeping with most recent LG smartphones, the Optimus 3D will have DLNA media sharing over the local network, although the size of 3D video might preclude its being shared over Wi-Fi.

Other devices slated to show have already been confirmed, such as the Optimus Pad (G-Slate in the US) as well as the Optimus 2X and Optimus Black. The 2X is already shipping to some European countries.

More information for the Optimus 3D may come on Monday with an LG media event.
