While most of the world will be focussing in IFA in Berlin this week, Chinese smartphone fans will be keeping an eye on PPTV when they launch their first smartphone on the 7th September.
PPTV are a video streaming provider in China similar to Netflix and not 100 miles apart from fellow content provider LeTV. Earlier this year we saw LeTV release 3 Android smartphones which have proven to be so successful that 1 million LeTV devices were sold in only 3 months!
PPTV are obviously hoping for similar success with the release of their new smartphones which could boast 3D screen technology. 3D screens have been used in Chinese smartphones in the past without much success but the new teasers make it sound like PPTV have a new 3D tech that can convert 2D video in to 3D on the fly.

In addition to 2D the panel may also be a 2.3D 2K unit! With 3D and 2K technology we certainly hope the processing power of the phone is going to be up to the job and we are equally intrigued by how large the battery in this phone will be.
Is 3D a feature that still interests you?
I aspect PPTV to release good phones as LeTV did. Looking forward to this.
3D Panel?? Definitely a nice gimmick. As I know the 3D-Technology did not much changed… (I will see at IFA ;)) Lets see how the battery will work out xD.
This sounds really exciting and geeky at the same time and definitely something I would be interested in. Unfortunately it also sounds very expensive!
sounds heavy on the wallet
and maybe sad
The only experience i had with pptv was an illegal chinese app store like app on an unjailbroken ios device in which every app was free – God had i demand to install this app on every person who had an ios device
yep … but will cost an upwards of ATLEAST $350 :/
dont care about 3D, but if those renders are accurate, then it looks very nice. doesn’t look like a lot of room for a big battery however
hope they have NFC and quick charge. feel free to skip the fingerprint scanner…
If built quality is good than…bale bale
