Motorola’s 3D Android phone appears again

New images have leaked of what could be Motorola’s first 3D Android phone. A similar device was spotted last week which looked more like a prototype, but these new images appear to be final hardware. We say this because the new phone (MT810) now sports the China Mobile logo.

The speculation of a 3D-capable device stems from Motorola’s recent patent application for a three dimensional display.

A section of the patent reads:

“An optical element is disposed, for example, molded or laminated, within the first housing. The optical element allows light to pass through, from the display to a side of the housing for viewing. While the display present images in two dimensions, the optical element changes the image viewed therethrough to appear as three dimensional. The optical element is a plurality of lens, preferably made of polymer lenticule, but may also be other types of optical structures, for example, electro-wetting lenses or parallax barriers.”

As you can see from the images below, this new Motorola phone has a transparent cover on top of its display. If you read through the entire patent, many of the features they describe match up nicely with the form factor of this device.

Nintendo is planning to launch their 3D handheld gaming system this year, so it wouldn’t be that much of a stretch to see Motorola do the same. The 3D effects for the Nintendo 3DS are speculated to be based on autostereoscopic imagery generated by LCDs with parallax barrier technology, which is the same material mentioned in the Motorola patent.

    That looks alot better than the first post! Still don’t know the use though.

      It’s entirely based on the owner’s experience over a certain brand, I can’t say Samsung is the best phone nor the worst phone either for I have used its older models (you know those 2001 analog models) and its still working ‘miraculously’ today.

      The term Super-Amoled is cool, and samsung’s new GPU procs is even more cooler, but I think samsung galaxy s already had its ’15 min of fame’ during the convention held last month.

      The rest is up for the consumers, to judge if this phone is best or worst.

    looks bulky, faily, samsungy, plasticy, and above all cheap.

    It’s still a pretty sweet idea and will hopefully drive some serious innovation from either Motorola or other Android handset makers.

    ha ha! looks just like the old Moto A1000 that I used on the AU Three network about 5 years ago….

    love how the designs are getting recycled… maybe we’ll see a clamshell Android on WinPhone7 device (actually, I really hope we do!)

    awesome.

    Wow. Android mostly struggles to display polygons but now we’re talking about the whole system being made optically 3D, which I gather from other optical 3D technologies is much more resource consuming. I dont even understand what benefits it would offer.

    if the phone looks even remotely as slick as this does then im having one now!!!! its an amazing looking phone, lets hope it will have the specs to go with it!

    Looks to me like the MING A1600 or A1800 incarnate. Nice one Motorola!

    THESE ARE VERY EXCITING TIMES FOR THOSE THAT EMBRACE CHANGE !
    TECHNOLOGY IS AND WILL BE RAMPED UP SIGNIFICANTLY NOW AS GLOBAL ECONOMIES
    DRASTICALLY DEPEND ON NEW INNOVATIONS…3D TECHNOLOGY IS HERE AND IS WELL
    POSITIONED FOR GREAT SUCCESS IN THE NOT SO DISTANT FUTURE .HOPEFULLY AND
    GRACIOUSLY WE SHOULD ALL BE WINNERS…
