Several of you may recall that many years ago, there was a brief semblance of companies attempting to develop a glasses-free 3D smartphone experience. This was fueled by the popularity of 3D movies as well as handheld gaming devices like the Nintendo 3DS, but it is enough to say that the trend did not last very long. These phones quickly degenerated.
ZTE has unveiled its latest tablet, the nubia Pad 3D, which offers users a visionless 3D experience for the first time in years.
According to ZTE, this tablet was developed together with Leia, which will be using the company's 3D lightfield technology. Together with AI, this will enable users to look at the tablet at any angle and still get that 3D effect that previous smartphones did not.
ZTE claims that they are able to transform 2D content, such as music, games, and movies, into 3D, and that the nubia Pad 3D is not just for viewing 3D content. A set of cameras on the front and back of the tablet assist in the capture of stereo images and videos, allowing users to make their own 3D content if they want.
The tablet itself will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset with UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR5 RAM, as well as a massive 12.4-inch 2.5K adaptive dimming LCD screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, and will also have a 9,070mAh battery with 33W fast charging capability.
There has been no mention of the tablet's pricing or availability yet, so we'll have to wait and see.
