The Samsung Galaxy S III may be the first handset to team a quad-core processor with an LTE radio, and it may feature a fancy display and a cutting-edge camera. But one feature it won’t have is 3D technology, despite what the rumors say.
And it seems Samsung is keen to make that clear. In a statement to Engadget this morning, the Korean electronics giant confirmed that it has no plans to introduce 3D technology to its future smartphones:
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.
Let’s face it, it’s probably a wise decision. After all, none of the 3D-capable smartphones we’ve seen to date have been all that successful. The HTC EVO 3D, which actually packs some really great specifications, seems to be failing simply because it has “3D” on its box. Back in January, the SIM-free device was reduced to just over £200 (approx. $317) at ASDA stores throughout the U.K., which is a great price for a smartphone of this caliber.
It’s pretty safe to assume, then, that the Galaxy S III — or any Galaxy device that arrives in the near future — won’t be jumping on the 3D bandwagon. While that may be a disappointment to a small few, I’m guessing most of you won’t be losing any sleep over that decision.
Are you disappointed Samsung’s Galaxy range won’t get 3D technology?
