Three has joined Vodafone in confirming that it will be stocking the yet to be released LG Optimus 3D when it launches in the UK later this year. 

The phone will be announced at Mobile World Congress with LG, so far, teasing the news of the handset via trickles of information and videos.

"The LG Optimus 3D addresses the lack of 3D content issue - one of the biggest problems facing the 3D market - with a complete platform for a one-of-a-kind experience on a mobile device," said LG earlier in the week. "LG’s most advanced smartphone to date will feature a dual-lens camera for 3D recording, a glasses-free LCD panel for 3D viewing and diverse connectivity options such as HDMI and DLNA for 3D content sharing anytime, anywhere."

Vodafone has also said that it will be stocking the handset, first telling that it would be "sellling the eye-popping smartphone as soon as it’s available," and then confirming with Pocket-lint when we phoned to confirm the news. 

Unfortunately, neither UK operator has said when the handset will be arriving.
