Samsung could be prepping a glasses-free 3D capable addition to the Galaxy range, rumours suggest, joining HTC and LG in adopting nascent 3D smartphone tech.
According to insider sources cited in a report from ET News of Korea, which was picked up on by Sammy Hub, the device is likely to sport a spec set broadly in line with the huge-selling Galaxy S2. Think: 4.3-inch LCD display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box and a dual core 1.2 GHz processor.
But the twist this time around is that it’ll also pack dual, rear-mounted eight megapixel cameras and, we’re assuming, the same stereoscopic technology as the LG Optimus 3D and the HTC Evo 3D for 3D videos and snaps.
What’s not yet clear is whether it’ll feature the same 2D-to-3D content conversion capabilities that are coming to the LG’s effort soon. But we’d be staggered if that isn’t the case, given the competitive advantage Samsung would otherwise be ceding to its rival.
The handset is reportedly due for release during Q4 – a period that’s rapidly shaping up to be the scene of a smartphone battle royale, with rumours suggesting it’ll also see the debut of the iPhone 5, a slew of new Windows Phone mobiles and the third Google Nexus-branded Android phone.
