Samsung has demonstrated its 55″ glasses-less 3DTV at FPD China, an event dedicated to displays. The prototype supports a 1080p resolution. Back in October 2010, Toshiba had demonstrated the Regza GL1 (read our Regza GL1 hands-on), a similar concept. Samsung goes farther and enables a “2D mode” that turns this TV into a… “normal” TV, which is a relief for everyone involved. The 3D technology seems to be a bit more advanced too: Samsung mentions 9 viewpoints, and there’s a possibility that the total resolution (1920×1080) might be divided by 9, so that would be a little scary (it doesn’t look that bad in the photo). That would mean that the effective resolution (that your eyes can perceive) would be fairly low. We definitely need 4K displays as soon as possible. In any case, don’t get too excited: it is just a prototype and because even if Samsung wanted to commercialize it, they would need three more years.
