LG debuts glasses-free 3D for mobiles devices


Not content with launching the world's slimmest smartphone, the LG Optimus Black, with a new type of screen technology, LG has also announced it will be showing off a new 4.3in smartphone display featuring glasses-free 3D here at CES.

With a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, the LCD display uses a parallax barrier to split the image in two and provide an image for each eye. LG claims the display provides smoother, brighter, cross-talk free images, though we're not entirely sure what they're comparing to here.

We'll hopefully get hands-on with the new panel when we visit LG's booth later in the show. For now we shall simply speculate on why anyone would want a 3D display on their phone/tablet/etc.

You can already get 3d capable phones without glasses in India, so maybe they're comparing to that. Also HTC was demonstrating mobile 3D technology at MWC 2010 in Barcelona, and from their current trend of bring out new phones every few weeks, my money would be on them to showcase something in the next few days.
