Sony Ericsson Plans 4.7-inch 3D Android Smartphone

Word has it that Sony Ericsson wants a slice of the 3D pie that HTC and LG have both already cut. The company is working on a 3D (glasses-free) device to compete with phones like the HTC EVO 3D and the LG Optimus 3D. Sony Ericsson's secret smartphone is no pipsqueak, though. Supposedly this phone they're working on with a 4.7-inch screen has a stunning mega resolution of 1280 x 720.

Not much else is known about this supposed 3D smartphone yet, but the little things we do know are quite impressive. While many prefer those imposing larger screen devices, others may see them as "too bulky." There must be a limit, though, and we believe a 4.7-inch screen would be reaching it.

Gizmodo speculates that it may be a natural successor to the Xperia Play, which has so far received something of a lukewarm reception from critics and buyers alike. The prospect of a 3D PlayStation handset with such a high-resolution screen is rather tantalising - but until a few more facts come out about the new device, we'll have to call that nothing more than wishful thinking.

Some people even said that the Samsung Hercules' 4.5-inch display was already too much. Most people prefer a 4.0/4.3-inch device. Using a 4.5-inch device, like the Samsung Infuse 4G, is definitely much more uncomfortable for the small-handed. So, just think about the mega 4.7-inch smartphone.
