W3D phone news: Snail Mobile W3D gaming smartphone enable glassless 3D experience, premium specs come with $400 price tag


Ever wished for a better mobile gaming experience? With all the massive hardware specs equipped to newer smartphones more RAM, better processors, better GPU for a while it seemed like the smartphone was a strong gaming device on its own, and that things couldn’t get any better.

But it can. And it did.

Debuting as a concept device at the recent Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2015, Snail Mobile is set to launch their very own gaming smartphone later this year called the W3D. While this is not the first Android gaming phone Sony’s Xperia Play was the first it stands proud as the first of its kind, with massive specs and features that is set to give mobile gaming enthusiasts the best mobile gaming experience they can have.

The W3D, described by Snail Mobile as “the first eye-tracking glasses-free 3D gaming smartphone,” sports a 5.5-inch 1080p HD display, and an overall design that is ergonomically friendly to gamers; a dedicated gaming D-pad, face buttons, dual analog joysticks, and dual shoulder triggers on both of the top sides of the devices. With its sleek design, the device looks like a close relative of the Sony PlayStation Vita.

The W3D will run with a 2.2 GHz 64-bit octacore MediaTek 6595 processor, with 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of built-in internal storage, expandable with a microSD card. It will have a 13MP rear camera, and a 5MP front camera. The device comes with two USB ports, allowing charging and data syncing simultaneously. All these are powered by a massive 4200mAh battery more than enough power for a good gaming day.

Of course, the most notable feature of the W3D, as its name suggests, is that it offers a full-3D experience straight from its screen, without the need for a third-party 3D glasses, as the device is equipped with an eye-tracking camera. Now characters can look like they are jumping out of the screen, even without bulky 3D glasses.

Despite all these premium specs, Snail Mobile is offering the W3D for a cheap price of $400. It is now avaialble for pre-order from Amazon. The device will be released on September 29 this year.
