One of the highlights of this year’s IFA conference in Berlin was a prototype handset from Sharp featuring an autosteroscopic, glasses-free 3D display. Three short months down the line and we’ve now got our first glimpse at the range of handsets to get the technology.
The Lynx 3D SH-03C will feature a 1GHz processor, 9.6 MP stereo camera capable of 720p HD video recording and a digital TV tuner that can be used with the phone’s 3.8-inch touchscreen. Android is the OS of choice, with some built in apps and videos that best demonstrate the 2D to 3D one-button-touch conversion feature.
Still only a Japan exclusive at the moment but, aside from the Nintendo 3DS handheld games console, it’s the most convincing display of autosteroscopic lenticular screens we’ve seen so far.
