Rogers promises HTC Evo 3D, LG Optimus 3D
Canadian wireless provider Rogers on Friday announced it will bring the HTC Evo 3D and the LG Optimus 3D to its stores this summer. The pair will be Canada's first smartphones capable of capturing 3D images. The handsets capture said images using their dual five-megapixel cameras and can play them back to users on their 4.3-inch touchscreens without the need for 3D glasses.
The HTC Evo 3D is a direct GSM conversion of the Sprint model we tried and lets users share their 3D videos on 3D TVs and other compatible devices. It runs on Android 2.3 and sports a dual-core, 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor.
The LG Optimus 3D also has a dual-core chip, this time a TI OMAP chip, but gets the older Android 2.2 OS. It has 8GB of internal memory.
Both phones can be pre-ordered beginning next week, though prices and exact ship dates haven't yet been revealed. The Evo 3D already has a shipping equivalent in Canada through the Sensation 4G.
