Ulivon M005 hopes to finally make 3D phones mainstream!


Over the past few years we have seen a number of Chinese phone companies offer 3D phones. Non have really made much of an impact, the Ulivon M005 hopes to change that.

It sounds like a great idea on paper, having a smartphone with glasses free 3D display, and 3D camera, sounds like a great gadget but the reality is that these phones have never caught the attention of the market.

Ulivon hope that the time is finally right for the 3D phone market and is preparing to launch it’s Ulivon M005 3D phone. Unfortunately though, like most 3D phones, the hardware has had to suffer to make way for the 3D display and dual 5 mega-pixel rear camera yet the pricing is high!

For 2680 Yuan Chinese customers will be able to buy the M003 with 5.3-inch 960 x 540 display, dual-sim support, 2150mAh battery, quad-core Mediatek CPU and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Rather expensive when considering the Meizu MX3 with 8-core Samsung processor, full HD display and 32GB memory can be had for a similar price!

The M005 looks like another great example of a Chinese phone company making what they think will be popular rather than looking at what the market actually wants!

    That’s exactly how you doing it wrong, unless the price will be under 120 Dollar for foreign customers. If you throw something out like this (3D feature), you cannot ignore the rest. If they would just take 10 minutes to read smartphone forums, where potential customers do them the favor of market research, they would new that, it should be at least a 720p and 2500mah Battery. That’s how you catch customers, because 3D would be a nice feature on top of this very common specs.
    The HTC EVO 3D was such a economic fail, that supermarkets sold it for 170 Euro (new).

    they’re doing it wrong. Put those on the front face, not the rear. On the rear, put a standard 8-13MP. Then, develop the extension necessary to use 3D video chat. Top it off with an app to 3d scan objects and voila! Suddenly it doesnt seem so pointless (in markets where 3d didnt take off, like the USA)
