    The Samsung Galaxy SIII featuring a 3D Glassless screen that is rumored to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2012 may not be the only GSIII handset to hit the shelves. According to NVO News and Tech2 the GSIII (non 3D) is the first version that will be announced with the 3D version releasing as refresh later in the year..


    The 3D version is rumored to be dubbed as the Galaxy S 3D (no surprises there.) This is backed up by Tech2's Rossi Fernandes. Rossi says “A 3D version of the Galaxy is expected and it’s likely to be called the Galaxy S 3D. A 3D display is likely along with support for 3D video and photo shooting. The 3D fever seems to be hitting mobile phones and Samsung hadn’t jumped onboard the bandwagon,”


    Keep in mind these rumors have not been confirmed so take them with the proverbial grain of salt. Regardless of how this pans out MWC 2012 will surely bring a version of the GSIII that will put a smile on everyones face.

    sounds interesting...i guess its the next step up from having an hd screen (actually i thought full 1080p screens would come before 3d but i guess not lol)

    Three of the major carriers have 3D devices.

    Sprint EVO 3D
    AT&T Thrill
    T-Mobile G-Slate

    Verizon is the only one without.

    Wonder why that is :question:

    Yeah 3D on a phone is unecessary. Would like to see the GSIII make it to VZW though...

    Hopefully its even better than the superphone GSII...I've never actually used or even seen one but isn't it the basic Android phone to beat?

    They're supposed to be doing away with the search and menu buttons in ics. They added a recent activities button on the GNex. Could be that.

    The picture is only a rendition. The GSIII may or may not look like that.

    According to one site the EVO 3D is the 5th best smartphone of 2011. Somebody out there like 3D phones...lol.

    I got my son a 3DS. 3D isnt that bad on it. It could be nice, especially if they do it like on the 3DS and have a slider to adjust the 3D effect instead of on n off.

    It's very important, otherwise you can't find your phone if you're looking at it from the wrong angle, and good luck trying to pick it up off of a flat surface!

    I believe, at least on the evo 3D, that you can turn the 3D off, but I digress, I've handled 2 and I was disappointed both times, its gimmicky at best
