Samsung Takes Shot At LG, Says 3D Phones Are Pointless

Looks like Samsung hasn’t quite developed a case of “me too” just yet. In fact, it’s doing the complete opposite, saying that it hasn’t “seen a need for 3D on mobiles as of yet.” Clearly, this is a shot aimed directly at their neighbors at LG.

After all, the LG Optimus 3D is the only phone announced thus far that is going to sport a 3D display. Samsung is quick to point out that they “are world leaders in 3D,” but they “don’t see [3D] is needed yet” given the trade off “when it comes to thickness and pocketability.”

TechRadar reports Samsung Mobile UK product management head Jim Powell did give the company a way out though, saying that if the innovation works (and the public seems interested), Samsung will offer a “response” quickly. For now, I’m inclined to agree with Samsung. As innovative and novel as the idea may be (the only other glasses-free 3D handheld that I can think of is the Nintendo 3DS), I think it’s just that: a novelty.

Then again, they did say the same thing about the waggle-tastic controls on the Wii when that was first revealed too. Look at where we are with motion gaming now.

    I wish that samsung have to introduce a super amoled 3D phone and I am one of the bigger fan of samsung phone

  2. i think samsung is unhappy that LG beat them to it and are just saying that to try to make us believe that they are not pushing the tech themselves. lg’s 3d device is beautiful and it will sell very well, and soon samsung will have to eat their words and develop a similar device to match demand
