VKWorld Discovery 2 features 3D screen and a multi-function fingerprint scanner
In 2011, the smartphone market had not one, but two smartphones with a 3D screen. The HTC Evo 3D was one such unit, and the LG Optimus 3D (known as the LG Thrill 4G at AT&T) was the other. Both gave users a screen that provided 3D images without having to wear special glasses. For example, this stereoscopic technique allowed users to watch special YouTube videos in 3D, sans glasses.

According to a report published on Friday, Chinese smartphone manufacturer VKWorld will soon introduce the Discovery S2. This handset offers a 3D screen without requiring glasses. The device is similar to the VKWorld Discovery S1, which also features a 5.5-inch 3D screen protected by Gorilla Glass. But VKWorld added a fingerprint scanner to the back of the Discovery S2. This scanner does more than verify your identity. You can navigate through your pictures by using a swipe gesture on the scanner. The scanner also doubles as a dedicated button for taking photographs, and controls the music player.

We don't have a complete list of specs, but we do know that the Discovery S2 will feature a metal build, and will be slightly thinner than the Apple iPhone 6s Plus. The latter is 7.3mm thick compared to the 7.2mm measurement of the Discovery S2. The phone is expected to retail for the equivalent of $299 once launched.

Some users of the stereoscopic phones complained of headaches and vision problems. Hopefully, the years that have passed since then have improved the technique to prevent this from happening.

Thanks for the tip!
