Back in February we provided our readers with a UK release date and pricing information for the LG Optimus 3D smartphone. However, things appear to have changed since then, and it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing the highly anticipated handset until the end of May.

According to Carly Page over at dialtosave.co.uk, LG has recently confirmed that the Optimus 3D handset will be released in the UK in “late May” instead of the predicted launch date of April 25th, which is the date that both Play.com and Expansys had expected it to arrive.

However, if you take the impressive specs into account as well as the fact that it’s the world’s first fully 3D capable smartphone, I’m pretty sure it will be worth the wait. The Optimus 3D features a 4.3-inch naked eye display, and dual 5MP stereoscopic cameras.

Besides the screen and the dual stereoscopic cameras, which are capable of recording three-dimensional footage, the Optimus 3D handset also comes with a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1080p video recording, DLNA and HDMI media sharing and a 1500mAh battery.

As Carly notes, although it is currently available to pre-order SIM free, it will also be available on pay monthly deals with Three, T-Mobile and Orange. Are you thinking of buying the LG Optimus 3D handset?
