Way to be straightforward, LG.

The LG Optimus 3D is no longer a rumor. We caught our first glimpse of this device at the end of January, and got another good look at it again earlier this week. This morning a huge picture of the hot new handset even leaked out to Phandroid. And then, a few hours later, LG killed our game of catch-the-rumor by making the Optimus 3D official.

The company sent out a press release announcing that the Optimus 3D will be revealed at the MWC. They stray away from offering any specs, but we know from the video that it will pack dual-cameras and be capable of 3D recording. Otherwise, it is likely to be similar to the Optimus 2X. Expect the same dual-core Tegra 2 processor.

From the release: "The LG Optimus 3D addresses the lack of 3D content issue -- one of the biggest problems facing the 3D market -- with a complete platform for a one-of-a-kind experience on a mobile device. LG’s most advanced smartphone to date will feature a dual-lens camera for 3D recording, a glasses-free LCD panel for 3D viewing and diverse connectivity options such as HDMI and DLNA for 3D content sharing anytime, anywhere."

Of course, LG neglects to mention that the 3D "content issue" only exists for large-screen devices. Consumers think glasses free handsets are pretty cool. They just don't want to spend thousands of dollars on a new TV. Or to be forced into wearing dorky glasses.
