Samsung Galaxy S2 (S II) Follow On: Galaxy 3D Android Q4?

We know how many of you are waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S2 (S II) handset, still to be released in the U.S. but the wait has been too long for many and some are already contemplating what lies beyond. Only a few days ago we gave you news of a huge smartphone, or small tablet, however you choose to look at it, the Samsung Galaxy Q and today we have news of a further Galaxy S2 follow-on as it seems a 3D Samsung Galaxy Android is now in the works, due for release in Q4.

A 3D Samsung handset would no doubt interest many especially now that 3D handsets are starting to catch on. Many had felt that the 3D element would be a gimmick that would soon fade away but the recent HTC EVO 3D gained a lot of admirers for its specs and features, even without the 3D aspect taken into account. Scott Webster over on Cnet, sourced from Etnews, tells how the Korean website leaked the news of a Galaxy 3D. Rumored specs so far include a 4.3-inch 3D LCD display, dual 8-megapixel cameras (a step up from the dual 5-megapixels on the EVO 3D) capable of 2D or 3D photos and video capture and HD TV-output. It’s also likely the Galaxy 3D will include the Samsung Exynos 1.2Ghz dual-core processor.

Meanwhile Jacob Palmer over on Gizmo Crunch, sourced from SmartKetai, also reports on this Samsung 3D smartphone and points out that it may be Samsung’s attempts to deter consumers from opting for the HTC EVO 3D as they’re still awaiting the US arrival of the Galaxy S2. Many Samsung fans who might appreciate the 3D element would willingly wait for a Samsung Galaxy 3D phone if they knew it was on the way.

A little more information also confirms this 3D smartphone would have a glasses-free display and run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. All in all very much like the Galaxy S2 but a 3D option. There are some who may have doubts about this latest rumor as Samsung hasn’t always seemed too keen on 3D displays but of course with the recent positive press for the EVO 3D, it’s certainly a possibility that Sammy has had a change of heart.

One thing for sure is that it certainly looks like an interesting few months ahead and we shall keep you informed with further developments about this 3D Samsung handset. Would you be interested in a Galaxy 3D smartphone from Samsung or do you still view 3D devices as a bit of a novelty but nothing more? Let us know with your comments.
