Just as the world prepares for HTC’s glasses-free 3D phone, LG is set to release it’s own as well.
The Evo 3D, HTC’s phone, which will be available exclusively through Sprint in the US, is dated to be released later this month and was expected to be the first autostereoscopic (glasses-free) 3D phone in the world.
However, the LG Optimus 3D, which was announced before the Evo 3D, may be trying to steal that spotlight.
While LG is yet to release anything official about the phone’s release date, Amazon has stepped forward and decided to stamp one the device.
The online retailer’s UK site now lists the Optimus 3D at £600 (around $980), with a release date of June 20. This is for an unlocked version of the phone with no mobile carrier subsidy.
As for specific carriers, T-Mobile UK and Three have both expressed intentions to have the Optimus 3D available on their respective networks this summer.
The date when it’ll be released in other countries, including the US, remains a mystery. For now, it appears that the US will receive the Evo 3D and the UK will get their hands on the Optimus 3D.
Given that this may be the first time in a long line of glasses-free 3D phones, however, consumers will no doubt have a good variety of selection in the near future.
