LG Electronics Unveils the Optimus 3D Smartphone

LG Electronics has unveiled its LG Optimus 3D smartphone featuring second generation dual core technology and an advanced “Tri-Dual” architecture.

The phone was first unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in February, the LG Optimus 3D offers a full 3D experience recording, viewing, sharing in a Smartphone form factor.

The LG Optimus 3D takes the Smartphone experience into new territory with its Tri-Dual configuration – dual-core, dual-channel and dual-memory – which allows for improved performance when multi-tasking, enjoying a movie or playing graphics-intensive games.

According to George Mudhune, Regional Marketing, LG Electronics, East and Central Africa, the LG Smartphone will be a major step in the utilization of full 3D functionality in everyday life as users can record and immediately view content in 3D without the need for special glasses:

“Tri-Dual architecture opens up a whole new world in Smartphone performance. As the latest offering in our Optimus line-up, we expect there will be significant interest from those who seek the very latest in smartphone technology and are excited about 3D as the next big frontier in mobile devices.”

LG’s Tri-Dual architecture pushes the LG Optimus 3D’s performance well beyond simple clock speed improvements:

”Other smartphones – even those with higher clock speeds and dual-core technology – suffer when it comes to actual performance because of the inefficiency inherent in a single-channel configuration, “said Mudhune.

With a dual-channel configuration, data transfers take place simultaneously between the dual-core and dual-memory, resulting in noticeably faster performance. As a result, the LG Optimus 3D maximizes run-time efficiency leading to noticeably smoother, faster, and longer multi-tasking, browsing, gaming and multimedia enjoyment than ever before.

At the same time, driven by the evolution of technology in the ICT industry in Kenya, Mudhune said the handset will be useful for social networking users especially twitter, facebook, and even YouTube:

“For the last two years, Kenya has experienced a transformational change on its ICT infrastructure hence the high speed broadband capacity from the submarine cables. Today, we can enjoy surfing on internet because of the high speeds on 3G networks and as LG we have aligned our strategy to developing gadgets that respond to the technology changes.”

And with ongoing tests on 4G networks across the globe, LG’s LTE technology is expected to ultimately change the way people make calls by utilizing established network carriers to provide HD voice quality through AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate) wideband technology, while allowing users to maintain their existing phone numbers.

Early this year, LG showcased its first 4G LTE phone in Las Vegas, a mobile technology that would enable users to make video calls and even multimedia messaging at a faster speed.

The LG Optimus 3D phone will be in more than 60 markets around the world in the third quarter of the year.
