Details are scant on this one, but Samsung have announced that they will be launching their first commercial 3D phone sometime this month. The Samsung SCH-W960 has a 3.2-inch WQVGA AMOLED touchscreen and dual DMB TV tuners capable of receiving terrestrial and satellite signals. Most interesting, though, is the 3D functionality; the W960 can apparently convert regular 2D content into 3D.
There’s also talk of a 3D TV channel specially for the SCH-W960. Other specifications include a 3-megapixel camera with Xenon flash, DNSe 2.0 and DivX support, along with HSDPA connectivity.
So far it seems the Samsung SCH-W960 will be a Korea-only release, at least initially. We’re guessing that, depending on its success there, the company will consider launching the technology in North America and Europe, though likely in a device that lacks the digital TV tuners.
