BARCELONA, Spain — LG Electronics is showing off the first phone with a color 3-D screen and a 3-D camera.

The South Korean electronics company's Optimus 3D drew large crowds eager to give it a test run on Monday at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The screen produces the illusion of depth without the need for special glasses, and includes a pair of five-megapixel lenses for taking 3D photos and video.

The phone must be held at the proper distance and angle in order for the viewer to perceive depth. It runs on Google Inc.'s Android 2.2 operating system.

LG Electronics Inc. said the 3D phone will be sold in the spring, but it didn't announce a deal with a U.S. carrier.
