Orange stores will be the first to stock the new LG Optimus 3D, the first phone with 3D capabilities, and the slimline Optimus Black it has been announced.
Both phones feature ground breaking technology with the Optimus 3D offering users the ability to record 3D video as well as create, share and view 3D multimedia.
A merger between T-Mobile and Orange last year formed Everything Everywhere, the largest mobile group in the UK, and this latest move will be seen as an attempt to further increase its presence in the sector.
Nicola Shenton, Head of Device Portfolio, Everything Everywhere said: “The LG Optimus 3D and LG Optimus Black show LG is really driving the market in terms of 3D and screen display technology.
“We’re pleased to be working with them to bring this latest innovation to Orange customers, pushing the boundaries of what a smartphone can deliver.”
The Optimus Black will feature a new energy saving screen called a NOVA aid to reduce power consumption by 50 per cent compared to standard LCD screens
Black will also be the slimmest phone on the market at 9.2mm, and both phones will use the increasingly popular Google Android system.
According to research company GfK, Android operating systems now represent 25 per cent of all smartphones bought across the world.
