Video: Sharp's Naked-Eye 3D Smartphone Up And Close

About ten days ago, we reported about Sharp’s 003SH, the company’s new 3D smartphone, which will go on sale in Japan next month. And now, thanks to our friends over at Diginfonews, we can see the device captured on video. Japan’s biggest mobile carrier, NTT Docomo, will brand the device as “Sharp LYNX 3D SH-03C” (that’s how the device is being referred to in the video).

To recap, the handset makes it possible to view 3D images without glasses through a vertically zoned parallax barrier (2D images can be converted to 3D with the push of a button).

The phone has a 3.8-inch touchscreen with 800×480 resolution, a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 9.6MP CCD camera with 720p video recording, and it runs on Android 2.1. Sharp also threw in Japan-specific features, such as a OneSeg digital TV tuner or an e-wallet function.

Buyers can also expect some pre-installed 3D content, such as games. Sharp also said they will upgrade the Lynx to Android 2.2 in spring next year.
