Could Samsung’s Galaxy S III Have a 3D Display?


The Samsung Galaxy S III is slowly starting to turn from a rumored handset far-off in the future to something very much real and in the here-and-now, as you can see from our recent find of an image apparently taken with the GS3’s main camera. Of course, just because we have this new evidence of the handset doesn’t mean the rumors will be stopping, and the latest to address the GS3 suggest Samsung may outfit the phone with a 3D screen.

We’ve yet to see Samsung embrace autostereoscopic 3D displays, as competitors like LG and HTC have. While the tech was around earlier, 2011 was the first year that saw it receive wide availability. The displays didn’t bomb, but they also didn’t generate the level of excitement you might hope to see from such a technically impressive development. As a result, the future of such screens has seemed up-in-the-air. If Samsung were to incorporate a 3D display into the Galaxy S III, it could go a long way towards reinvigorating 3D on smartphones.

There’s also the possibility that a 3D screen might only be a feature on a particular GS3 variant, considering all the slightly-different hardware options that grace the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II families.

If this source is accurate, Samsung would debut the Galaxy S III at the Mobile World Congress at the end of February.
