With the success of the Galaxy and Galaxy S S2 which recently topped 5 million units sold, the Korean automaker could again leverage its well established brand Galaxy Android as a reference in the general public.
Following in the footsteps of HTC Evo 3D and LG Optimus 3D (read test), Samsung would develop a Smartphone with a autostereoscopic display delivering a 3D effect.Samsung is apparently planning to launch a 3D version of its popular Galaxy S2 handset, the phone would be called the Galaxy 3D and would face the likes of the LG Optimus 3D and the HTC EVO 3D.
The rumour emerged from Korean website ETNews, which added that the handset is likely to be launched towards the end of the year as the holiday season nears. Should this be the case, we can expect the Galaxy 3D to come with a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive 3D glassless screen, an Exynos 4210 SoC clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 32GB onboard memory and two eight megapixel rear facing cameras.
True to its tradition of occupying the land by providing input terminals, medium, high-end feature phone in or moderated by different OS smartphones (Android, Windows Phone 7, Bada), the Korean could also attack the segment 3D mobile.
A terminal that would feel like 3D display technology, but also as a relay existing 3D products (TV and Blu Ray 3D).
According ETNews, this Samsung 3D Galaxy is run by Android 2.3, would have a 4.3 inch screen and a processor of 1.2 Ghz Exynos. HDMI and dual 8-megapixel sensor are also present.
It remains to know the sales figures of the first LG Optimus 3D and HTC Evo 3D coming soon to gauge the interest of the public and the sustainability of this possible segment 3D, as first indicators on sales of 3DS are at least disappointing ...
It would be quite interesting to see whether Samsung decides to upgrade the monitor to HD and adds full HD 3D video capture as well. .
