Samsung SCH-W960 3D Phone Leaked

3D technology has been making big waves in the movie, TV and laptop industries recently, so it was probably only a matter of time before we saw a 3D mobile phone. Samsung has been working on the technology in the form of the Samsung SCH-W960, and it may even be with us by next month. To find out more, read on after the jump…

As with most other high-end Samsung mobile phones, the Samsung SCH-W960 is claimed to use an AMOLED screen, but it’s also claimed that the device will be able to display stereoscopic 3D images.

Even without 3D technology, the specs for the Samsung SCH-W960 sound impressive, with a 3.3-inch AMOLED screen, xenon flash and dual TV Tuners. Whether you’ll have to don a pair of 3D glasses to get the best out of the phone isn’t explained, although we can’t see it catching on out and about if wearing a dodgy pair of polarised specs is a prerequisite.

There’s also no mention of what form the 3D images would take – whether it would be for the interface and features in general, or whether it would just be for video clips. If the latter, it also remains to be seen whether dedicated 3D content would be needed, or if Samsung will provide software to convert your existing video clips or images.

Either way, if the technology works well, it could be an interesting time for mobile phones – especially with Samsung also working on projector phones such as the Samsung Beam. According to Samsung Hub, the Samsung SCH-W960 could also be officially announced as soon as the 23rd, at Samsung’s Unpacked Event.
