Sony Ericsson To Launch 3D Rival To iPhone 5?

Smartphone manufacturer Sony Ericsson may be on the verge of launching a 3D smartphone which could well be a rival to the LG Optimus 3D or the HTC Evo 3D smartphone.

Androidandme has all the titbits including the fact that the smartphone will likely come with a 4.7-inch display with a 1280x720 pixel screen resolution, thereby allowing it to carry an HD ready logo, and a pixel density of 312 ppi - just short of the iPhone 4's 314ppi.

Currently the biggest smartphone from Sony Ericsson is the Xperia X10 with a 4.3-inch screen; a 10 per cent increase in the screen diagonal will not add much to the device's dimensions, especially if Sony Ericsson manages some clever tricks.

Other big screen smartphones include the 4.5-inch Samsung Hercules, the Dell Streak with a 5-inch screen and the massive tablet-o-phone, the Samsung Galaxy Tab, with a 7-inch display.

No news as to when the phone might go on sale; the latest crop of smartphones from the Japanese company - mostly mainstream models - were unveiled back in June 2011, a mere four months after four other SE phones appeared at MWC in Barcelona.

Could Sony Ericsson be looking to rain on Apple's party by launching a new range of super smartphones including a 3D model? We wouldn't bet against it.
