Samsung Galaxy 3D coming by the end of the year?
The Samsung Galaxy 3D seems like the most logical name for an upcoming 3D handset by the phone maker, but while that name is far from final, rumor spread by Korean website ETNews points out that the company is planning to release a 3D handset by the end of the year, just in time for the Holiday shopping season. The phone will rival glasses-free 3D phones like the LG Optimus 3D and the HTC EVO 3D.

The Galaxy 3D is expected to be a variation of the Samsung Galaxy S II, which – even though it is not even available in the States yet – has enjoyed great initial response with over 3 million sold units. The 3D handset will feature two 8-megapixel rear-facing cameras for capturing 3D stills and video. The handset will sport a similar 4.3-inch display and will focus on media with the possibility to easily transfer user-created content to an HD TV, possibly via an HDMI-out port. Under the hood, it's likely that the Galaxy 3D will feature a powerful 1.2GHz Samsung Exynos chip.

That's still just a rumor, so even if true, the hardware in a possible final version of the Galaxy 3D might be different. In either case, by launching a 3D handset later than the competition, Samsung can rely on a more mature software (the Galaxy 3D is rumored to feature Android 2.3 Gingerbread), but most importantly – on more 3D content as currently suitable content has been sorely missing on both the LG Optimus 3D and HTC EVO 3D.

How will it be a low end phone? Do you even know what the exynos chip is? I assume not as you are just assuming that the phone will be a "low end phone". Explain before you shoot out stupid comments lie that.

Despite the fact that the Samsung Galaxy S2 has been out since March. No other phone that just has been released or will be released in the future can even hold a candle to the SGS2. The 1.2GHz dual core exynos chipset is years beyond the current and future competition.

Watch some videos of people comparing the SGS2 to the EVO 3D or Sensation. Which both devices have a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and see how much smoother and faster the SGS2 is. Despite both devices being "newer" than the SGS2.

Trust me, when this phone finally comes out in the US, every one who uses it or buys it will be blown away by how fast the phone is.

Not really, it's nothing special.

Atrix with 2.3 now gets same or higher benchmarks and it's just as fast.

The ancient resolution always helps the SGS2 in a lot of it.

Exynos and Mali are weak. clock for clock it loses.

I'm not blown away, evo3d/sensation are turds.

For RORYREVOLUTION and Niners13:

Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100), LG Optimus x2, Motorola ATRIX and some other, use the same CPU. Also iPhone 5 will use the same CPU aswell.

It'll be a low end phone because it ain't out yet nor can anyone know if it'll EVER be out! That's how....the longer it waits,the lower on the rung it'll go.

Maybe Samsung should figure out how to make its version of Android work consistently before jumping into yet another gimmicky venture.

Making claims without backing them up is pointless. Have you even ever used a Samsung smartphone recently? No? Thought not.

Who leads in most models of led tv. Who's screen are brightest. Who's bootloader comes unlocked. Who's setting the bar for innovation? I don't hear HTC, LG, Apple. Nuff said. Some people will always grip but couldn't negotiate phone software from any manufacturers. But know how to complain complain.. and will be first in Li e to buy this phone. Lol I took ny EVO 3D back 9 days after purchasing. It ran Luke HTC just wanted to be first in the us ...like crappy too many kinks. I will wait till galaxy 3D arrives Nd set yet another bar others can only dream of.
