Remember Hitachi’s new display technology we reported on a couple weeks ago? Well, rumor has it that Sony has decided to make use of similar technology to release an Ericsson branded smartphone with an HD 3D display.
For now, details are still few and far between. All we really know is that an informant heard word that Sony will release a new device with a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 display with glasses-free 3D. Of course, this should be a high end device, so the rest of the spec sheet should match up with the current standard for smartphones.
We also do not have any information on software, but since Sony has been releasing more and more devices with Android, it is likely that this phone will ship with Android as well. If it is an Android device, it will be a strong competitor to other 3D devices like the EVO 3D and Optimus 3D, if only because of its higher resolution display.
Unfortunately, the image you see above is not official. It is instead a Sony fan’s idea of what the 3D device may look like. Personally, I think Sony should take a cue from this guy, because if the actual device ends up looking like that, I may have to jump on the 3D phone bandwagon after all.[Phone Arena]
