Sharp Galapagos 3D Android handsets arriving in Japan

Sharp Galapagos handsets 003SH and 005SH will have 3D displays without the need for glasses.

Sharp will be releasing two 3D Android handsets for Japan’s Softbank network this coming December and February. The Sharp Galapagos 003SH (December) and 005SH (February) will not require the use of glasses for the 3D effect.

The Sharp Galapagos 003SH and 005SH will use the same autosteroscopic display system as the Nintendo 3DS. The touchscreen slate 003SH has a 9.6 megapixel camera with a 720p video, while The QWERTY-sliding 005SH only has an 8 megapixel camera, no word on the video capture. Both handsets are powered by a 1 GHz Snapdragon that runs Froyo as well as 3.8 inch 3D displays and 800 x 480 resolution.

Capcom is one of a few developers that already have a 3D content deal set up for the release of the phones. This includes games such as Mega Man, Resident Evil and Ghosts ‘n Goblins, which will be available on the handsets on release.

If the launch goes well in Japan will there be 3D phones in the US and UK? We certainly hope so, the prospect sounds very intriguing. Let us know what you think about it via our Twitter or Facebook pages.
