LG confirms Optimus 3D ahead of MWC 2011: 3D camera & HDMI

With a leaked pic in the wild, LG couldn't exactly keep pushing its "dimensions" teaser and hope to maintain both enthusiasm and mystery about the LG Optimus 3D. Instead, the company has confirmed that the glasses-free 3D Android smartphone is headed to MWC 2011 later this month, and given us a sneak preview of some of the other skills on its spec sheet.

As you'd hope, there's a dual-lens camera array for 3D photography – just as on the LG G-Slate – together with HDMI connection and DLNA support for streaming media. It's not clear whether the 3D camera will capture video as well as photography, but we wouldn't be surprised if that was the case. More information at Mobile World Congress in just a couple of weeks time, and SlashGear will be there to bring back all the details.
