Two weeks ago Softbankannounced two new Sharp phones that feature 3D displays that require no glasses in Japan. The new Sharp Galapagos 003SH and the Sharp Galapagos 005SH run on Android 2.2. Both phones feature a 3.8-inch autostereo screen. This 3D screen is actually a bit larger than what the Nintendo 3DS will have. Besides the 3D feature the 003SH and 005SH are pretty much standard Android smartphones running on a 1Ghz Snapdragon CPU. Expect the cameras have 9.6MP and 8MP respectively. The Sharp Galapagos 005SH has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
The new 3D Android phones will still go on sale this year in Japan. Today the Mainichi Daily News (via3d-display-info) reports that Sharp plans to release their 3D Android Phones in the United States in 2011. Android phones with an auto-stereo 3D display definitely would find customers in the US. The details on when exactly Sharp will introduce 3D phones in the US are not available at this point.
