Sony Ericsson is prepping its first-ever, glasses-free 3D-capable smartphone, reports suggest, as more and more phone-makers get on board with 3D tech.
The HTC Evo 3D is landing in the UK in September, while LG’s Optimus 3D is out now. Samsung, meanwhile, is believed to have a 3D capable version of the Galaxy S2 in the works for Q4.
Now it seems the 3D capable smartphone club is about to get a new member in the form an as yet unnamed device from Sony Ericsson, which will pack a vast 4.7-inch display that almost takes it into tablet territory.
The phone, which is set for release later this year, is also purported to offer 1280×720 pixel resolution HD video and is likely to use the same stereoscopic technology featured in the Nintendo 3DS.
We’d be prepared to venture that, like its competitors from LG and HTC, the phone will be powered by Android too and will almost certainly ship with the 2.3.4 version of the software out of the box.
News of Sony Ericsson’s challenger comes after both the HTC Evo 3D and LG Optimus 3D were late in coming to market, with many speculating that the delay was down to health scares surrounding 3D technology.
