All of the 3D smartphones released into the world so far such as the Android powered LG Optimus 3D and the HTC Evo 3D have never enjoyed any degree of major success in the retail market. This is perhaps one of the reasons Samsung, who currently has 3D technology incorporated in everything from PCs to TVs, has “no immediate plan to include displays featuring 3D technology” in any of their upcoming smartphones.
Instead the Korean giant has told Engadget that they are “constantly exploring new technologies for our mobile devices.” Although what these technologies may be is anyone’s guess. Flexible displays which also incorporate the best of LCD and E-Ink technologies, more formally known as electrowetting display technology could be a fairly safe bet.
This confirms that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III won’t have a 3D display, instead likely to feature a Super AMOLED Plus HD display. Something that is bound to not draw complaints from 99% of the population.
Kitguru says: We at Kitguru don’t have too many complaints. 3D technology in a smartphone is more of a gimmick than it is anywhere else.
