Samsung’s upcoming kits, including the eagerly awaited successor to the Galaxy S2, will not embrace 3D technology, the company has revealed.
Unhappy with growing speculation that the as yet unannounced Galaxy S3 might bring 3D smarts Samsung has released a statement to Engadget to put an end to the rumours.
"Although Samsung Electronics is constantly exploring new technologies for our mobile devices, we have no immediate plan to include displays featuring 3D technology in our upcoming smartphones."
The South Korean giant’s growing stature in the mobile industry makes the announcement a bit surprising, especially considering major companies tend not to comment on rumours.
However, it’s likely the phone-maker doesn’t want expectations to run wild for the S3, or perhaps wants to disassociate itself with 3D technology for the time being given that efforts from the likes of HTC and LG have so far failed to gain much traction with consumers.
Whatever the case, it now seems almost set in stone the Galaxy S3 will land sans 3D capabilities. However, if you put stock in rumours, there’s still plenty to get excited about, such as a quad core processor, a 10-megapixel camera and a 4.65-inch display.
