According to Korean website ETNews, the Samsung Galaxy 3D will be featuring a few upgrades, like dual 8-megapixel cameras to allow users to shoot 3D content. Users can also connect the smartphone to 3D ready HDTVs using its HDMI port to preview captured 3D imagery.
The sources suggest that the Galaxy 3D will run the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, but if it launches in the fourth quarter, it is said to run on the new Ice Cream Sandwich instead. it is reported to sport a 4.3-inch glasses-free display and will be powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor.
The Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone has seen massive popularity around the globe, with smartphone owners calling it “the greatest phone ever.” The Galaxy 3D is said to resemble the popular smartphone, which is currently the most technologically advanced mobile phone released by the Korean company.
The Galaxy S II sold 3 million devices less than two months after it was released, and is expected to beat its predecessor’s record of having sold 14 million units in its first year.
Rumors also suggest that the Samsung Galaxy 3D will be released in September, and could compete with Apple’s iPhone 5 release (if the company resolves issues surrounding the overheating of the A5 processor).
