Earlier this month, Sharp announced that it would release two Android devices in Japan featuring 3D-capable autostereoscopic displays of the same kind as the upcoming Nintendo 3DS. Autostereoscopy produces clear 3D images without the use of glasses, and developer Capcom revealed that it would bring 3D versions of its classic games to the handset, such as Mega Man, Ghosts ‘n’ Goblins and Resident Evil.

The two phones, Galapagos 003SH and 005SH, both run Froyo and pack 1GHz Snapdragon CPUs and 3.8-inch WVGA 3D touchscreens. Thanks to Diginfonews, we can now get a closer look at one of these devices: the 003SH, which has been branded Sharp LYNX 3D SH-03C by Japan’s biggest mobile carrier NTT Docomo. We naturally don’t get to see the 3D effect since it cannot be captured by a camera, but it’s an informative video nonetheless.
