Micromax’s first 3D smartphone coming to India in May | Tech2

Micromax has announced its first 3D smartphone, the A115 Canvas 3D, adding one more handset to the popular Canvas family. You won’t require any special glasses to view 3D content on the phone. We do not have the entire specification sheet yet, but from what we know, the A115 looks like it is a capable performer.

The Canvas 3D is powered by an unnamed 1GHz dual-core processor and runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. There’s 512MB of RAM under the hood as well. The 3D content will be displayed on a 5-inch screen with a WVGA resolution (800 x 480 pixels).

A115 Canvas 3D will be available in black and white

Packed with a 2000 mAh battery, the phone is said to have a talk-time of 4.5 hours. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to shoot any cool 3D images or videos with the phone. It looks like there’s just a lone 5-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus. The front-facing camera is a 0.3-megapixel unit. Connectivity-wise, everything seems to be in place thanks to Wi-Fi support and Bluetooth 4.0.
The company says that you can also convert regular pictures into the 3D picture format. The phone comes with a special ‘Micromax 3D Space’ that has a collection of 3D videos as well as pre-loaded 3D games.

  1. They call this a 3D phone, but it has only one camera and one lens on each side, so it really is a 2D phone. Very misleading. They could have, and should have made a true 3D phone that would allow you to shoot real 3D pictures. If it were designed correctly (none of the so-called 3D digital cameras and phones have been), it could become very popular.

    Can This phone play 2D Movies in 3D ?

  3. Am wondering if we won’t see an unexpected pop in interest rates late Q3/early Q4 further eroding housing prices. Uncertainty for those with jobs and continued high rates of unmpnloyeemt will continue to drive down home prices.
