It turns out the excitement that the LG Optimus 2X generated in the past few weeks is going to be short-lived as the newer and cooler LG Optimus 3D is just around the corner, as seen in the following teaser video.

Yesterday LG came out with a scant press release announcing that they are going to show the world's first 3D smartphone to the world at the MWC 2011.

The Optimus 3D, the smartphone in question, leaked on a photo we told you about a few days ago. At the time it wasn't really sure if it's the real deal, but now that we have the official LG teaser video, it all lines up.

We've extracted the image on the left from the video below and you can clearly see the resemblance to the phone leaked by Phandroid.

Another thing of interest here is that this new teaser video calls the Optimus 3D “The world’s first Dual Core-Multi Channel”. Now the Optimus 3D surely won't be the first dual-core smartphone (the LG Optimus 2X has the honor), so we bet the key part of this statement is "Multi-channel".

Yesterday we explained you how the latest Android versions don't really use the two cores of the Tegra 2 chip as they lack the multi-threading capabilities. The only Android OS version that officially supports multi-core CPUs is in fact 3.0 Honeycomb. But this one hasn't been confirmed for smartphones yet.

Now Google is holding a Honeycomb event today, at which we should finally learn all about what Honeycomb can and can't do. So we guess, we'll soon know whether the Optimus 3D will be the first smartphone to run Android 3.0 or not.

And now for the video we promised you:

As we count the days left to the MWC 2011, the excitement certainly builds up. We love to see new tech that we've never seen before. Go ahead, LG, surprise us.
