Orange, NTT DOCOMO and Sharp have announced an Android smartphone that’s able to convert 2D content into 3D content in real time. The SHARP AQUOS PHONE SH80F will be available in France from next week, although there’s currently no mention of UK availability.
Sharp’s AQUOS PHONE SH80F has a 4.2-inch LCD display that allows users to see 3D content without any special glasses. The device, which is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.4GHz processor, has twin 8-megapixel cameras for recording 3D video and images. It allows users to share photos and movies by transferring the content to a 2D or 3D television via the HDMI port or by uploading it to the internet - and is also able to share via the DLNA standard.
Yves Maitre, Senior Vice President for Mobile Multimedia and Devices at Orange, said “We are excited to be launching the AQUOS PHONE SH80F, thanks to our collaboration with NTT DOCOMO and SHARP. Orange is committed to bringing compelling innovations to our customers. Together, we share this ambition, launching this product in both Asia and Europe. We look forward to developing similar opportunities for our customers in the future.”
