The Glasses-Free 3D Phones Are Coming

November 5, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

We already knew that glasses-free 3D games and apps will be coming in the 2nd half of 2011 in USA, thanks to NVIDIA’s Tegra platform, but it seems that Sharp wants to bring this to Japan right away.

The Japanese carrier Softbank will be launching a pair of phones that will feature glasses-free 3D displays. Each model will have a 1 GHz Snapdragon chip, and one of them ( the 003SH) will have a 9.6 MP camera, while the other (the 005SH) will have an 8 MP camera. The first phone will be released in December and the second one in late February, next year. Both phones will have Android 2.2 (Froyo).

The benefit of this technology is not only for stunning 3D game play, but also for watching 3D movies without needing any glasses.
