Samsung Galaxy 3D Arriving Q4 2011?


After Sharp got the 3D smartphone race running back in Japan last year, LG introduced the Optimus 3D, and HTC pulled together the EVO 3D. Now the remaining major smartphone manufactures may be about to play catch-up, at least according to a report that Samsung may be prepping its own Galaxy 3D in time for a Q4 launch.

Korea’s ETNews cites industry sources as tipping it off to the Galaxy 3D project. From the supposed hardware specs that are available, the smartphone sounds very much like the Galaxy S2, mirroring what we’ve seen from other manufacturers releasing two similar handsets, one with 3D and one without. Like the GS2, the G3D would run a 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos and have a 4.3-inch display. Helping you create some 3D content of your own, there will be dual eight-megapixel auto-focus cameras. If you need a larger screen, HDMI-out will pipe that 3D imagery to a compatible HDTV.

According to these sources, the G3D would ship with Gingerbread when released towards the end of the year, and as we would expect from a high-end phone, would receive ICS once it becomes available.

We’re curious to see what lasting impact 3D screens will have on the smartphone market. Is it going to be enough for each manufacturer to just have one 3D model in its stable, or are we going to see more competition as the technology improves?
