LG Optimus 3D Handset Picture Leaks

A picture of what appear to be the LG Optimus 3D have leaked online.

An anonymous tipster over at Phandroid sent in a picture of what they claim to be the LG Optimus 3D. While there’s no way to tell for sure that this is indeed the glasses free 3D LG phone we’ve been hearing about, it is for certain an unknown handset from the company.

Phandroid put together a list of what they could figure out for sure about this mystery phone (all list credit to them):

  • Our tipster tells us the screen is definitely larger than 4 inches although they were unsure of an exact size. Looks like 4.3-inches to me, and in terms of delivering a visual 3D experience that wows, this sounds about right
  • It has a Dual Core Processor & Multi-channel RAM – this is definitely a high-end phone on par (or better) than the Optimus 2X. With a “new dimension” event coming up and the above phone the only leaked image of an unannounced LG Android, our bets are on the Optimus 3D. And oh yeah, we’re really diggin’ the dual core.
  • You can see a front-facing camera on the top right

LG has been promoting an event at next month’s Mobile World Congress with the theme of taking phones “into the new dimension”, all but bluntly telling us that the 3D phone rumors are true.

We still aren’t sure why anyone would need 3D technology on their phone, but apparently someone out there feels there is a demand for this to happen.  The potential uses for the technology are a bit beyond us, perhaps it will turn a video conference call a bit more 3D so you can see the veins in the forehead of your boss as they yell at you for not filing those TPS reports?  The mind boggles.

What say you?  Do you have any interest in a 3D-enabled phone?
