LG Optimus 3D to pack 3D augmented reality browser

updated 12:05 pm EDT, Tue May 10, 2011

3D phone available as early as June

LG today revealed that it will use Wikitude's 3D browser in its LG Optimus 3D smartphone. The browser enables better interaction and engagement with real-time user environments. 3D Augmented Reality (AR) shows places, landmarks and objects in 3D making them easier to distinguish. The Optimus 3D, first displayed at MWC 2011, is scheduled to be available in Europe this summer.

The Wikitude World Browser is the first AR smartphone browser. AR creates a live direct or indirect view of the physical real-world environment and augmented it with virtual computer-generated imagery.

The LG Optimus 3D incorporates a number of innovative technologies that LG claims are world firsts. These include the world's first dual-core, dual-channel, dual-memory architecture. The company also claims that the phone is the first full 3D platform providing glasses-free viewing, recording and sharing of 3D content.
