3D Android smartphone from HTC arriving next year?

HTC could be the first in the world to launch an Android smartphone with a 3D display – sometime next year.

Techradar is quoting anonymous HTC insiders who “claim that we might see a 3D Android superphone before the end of 2011.”

It’s said that the Taiwanese handset maker is already looking for engineers familiar with “3D display and imaging technologies” and “multiple display technologies (TFT-LCD, PMOLED, AMOLED, E-ink etc)”.

Earlier this year, Samsung unveiled a 3D phone in South Korea – the SCH-W960 – so it might introduce a 3D Android handset before HTC.

We’ll see what happens next year. Until then, in case you want to see Samsung’s W960 3D phone in action, check out the video below:

Motorola, Acer and Sharp are reportedly also planning to make 3D Android handsets. Sharp may actually bring a 3D smartphone this year, but not based on Android.
