06 May, 2010

It was only in a matter of time before we see the first mobile phone with 3D-capable display and itís hardly a surprise the device comes from Samsung. The SCH-W960 AMOLED 3D doesnít require glasses for proper 3D visualization, but for now its availability is limited to the South Korean market.

The Samsung W960 AMOLED 3D is a CDMA mobile phone packing 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive touch display with WQVGA resolution, 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera, 3G support with HSPA, DMB-T TV tuner, Bluetooth and microSD card slot. Itís powered by the proprietary Samsung TouchWiz 2.0.

The 3D capable display doesnít require special glasses. There is a dedicated 3D shortcut key on the phone for switching on/off the 3D mode any time you want.

Samsung AMOLED 3D will be limited for Korea only through all the operators Ė SKT, KT and LGT. The device is expected to launch Q2 this year.
