3D Phones have been a disaster. Now Samsung has quashed a rumour that the new Galaxy SIII will come with 3D filming capability.Arch rival LG had little success last year when they launched 3D.
Last night Samsung made it clear that it has no immediate plans to include 3D display technology in its upcoming smartphone which is tipped to be launched in London shortly.
“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” an offical from the Company told Engadget.
The revelation isn’t surprising since the 3D trend seems to be trailing off. HTC and LG both rushed to release 3D smartphones last year, including the HTC Evo 3D and the LG Optimus 3D, but they have since replaced their flagships with 2D versions. The emphasis has returned to increasing resolution, something that’s still lacking with 3D display technology.
Samsung’s statement doesn’t completely rule out 3D display technology in the long term, but it does confirm that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III will not be sporting one. The handset is expected to feature a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED display along with Samsung’s own quad-core Exynos processor. Leaks have suggested a May 22 launch in London.
