With LG’s latest Optimus 3D smartphone and Optimus Tablet both capable of recording 3D video, they have now announced that they’ve partnered with YouTube to allow users to upload and stream 3D content from the video sharing site.
“The Optimus 3D is LG’s newest flagship smartphone. It is our answer to two major pain points of the current 3D experience – limited mobility and specialised glasses.
“Furthermore, our partnership with YouTube will ensure that our customers can easily generate and access ample 3D content,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile.
“3D technology has traditionally been reserved for the major Hollywood movie studios,” said YouTube’s Francsico Varela.
“With the new LG Optimus 3D anyone anywhere in the world can shoot 3D videos, upload them to YouTube and share them with their friends. We’re excited to see the creative videos our community captures and shares with this new technology.”
The Optimus 3D will be the world’s first glasses-free 3D display phone, and is capable of recording 3D video through its dual back-facing cameras. LG have announced that the phone should be in Europe early this Spring.
We’ll be bringing you some hands-on pictures and videos of the LG Optimus 3D from Mobile World Congress in the next few days.
