LG Optimus 3D gets earlier UK release date

Get ready to start queuing on Friday

LG and The Carphone Warehouse have announced that the LG Optimus 3D will be coming to the UK a week earlier than expected.

The new phone, which rivals the HTC Evo 3D in the forthcoming 3D phone war, was scheduled to go on sale from 8 July, but 20 Carphone Warehouse and four Best Buy stores will get stock a week earlier - with the rest of the nation now getting the phone from 6 July.

Pricey dimensions

The LG Optimus 3D will cost the princely sum of £35 a month on a two year contract - which is a long time if you're not heavily into exploiting the third dimension.

Or you can buy it off contract and SIM free for £499.95 if you're after something a little less committed - we're all about choice here.

We've got our full LG Optimus 3D review in the works to see what the fuss is really all about - or alternatively you can see our hands on preview for some lovely images of the chunky little beast.
