MyPhone A919 3D Duo

MyPhone A919 3D Duo will Amaze You with its 3D Display

The first of its kind in the Philippines local mobile phone market, A919 3D Duo features a 3D display without the need for 3D glasses. MyPhone and other tech blogs call it “naked eye 3D”.

MyPhone A919 3D Duo’s 3D display will be powered by a 1 GHz MTK6577 processor and 512 MB of RAM. It will run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean on a 5 inch 3D display with 3D camera, 3D video and 3D games.

A Closer Look at MyPhone A919 3D Duo’s 3D Screen

The science behind MyPhone A919 3D is parallax barrier. It’s the technology of showing different images to the right and left eye by having a layer that covers one of the images for the other eye.

Parallax barrier is like the 3D effect of some stickers or paintings where the subject seems to come out of the frame. But parallax barrier technology in phones and televisions does not look rubbish like the ones we see in some China made 3D paintings. They are quite cool to look at.

Parallax barrier has the advantage of presenting 3D images and videos without the need for other equipment like a 3D glass or helmet. However, you need to be at the right spot to see the 3D effect. That means if you tilt the phone too much, the result will be a blur of the two images and not a 3D picture.

Looking at the 3D screen also reduces the brightness and sharpness of the image since the resolution is shared between the two slightly different images that creates the 3D effect.

MyPhone A919 3D Duo’s Camera can Take 3D Photos and 3D Videos

MyPhone is eager in telling customers that their A919 3D Duo has a camera that can take 3D pictures and videos. A919 3D has a 5 MP main camera at the back and a VGA camera at the front.

The back camera has a dual LED flash to improve pictures taken during the night and even during the day.

One thing that bothers me though is the fact that there are only a few mobile phone models that can render 3D images. This means that only those with A919 3D or other 3D phones and devices can enjoy your 3D photos.

But don’t worry, A919 3D can still take normal or 2D pictures and videos.
