Sharp will use technology similar to Nintendo 3DS for its devices, which will support 3D cameras as well.


Soon you will be able to email and chat with your buddies in full stereoscopic 3D! Sharp has announced that they will be producing glasses free auto-stereoscopic 3D smartphones scheduled to release this year.

The device will also have a 3D capable camera, which will be able to capture pictures and video in 3D and be viewed in compatible devices (like Nintendo 3DS for example).

Sharp aren’t the first manufacturers to announce 3D mobile devices. Hitachi had announced earlier this year that the KDDI Japanese carrier and NTT docomo will be using similar 3D display on their devices. Sharp will have an edge over the competition, however, as their smartphone will see an international launch.
