Sharp has again made a show of its abilities to bring out 3D displays by introducing the LYNX 3D SH-03C in Japan. The device has been launched on the Japanese carrier NTT Docomo. You might already know that Sharp churned out two glasses-free 3D smartphones earlier with the Softbank carrier.

The LYNX comes with attractive specs. The device has a 1GHz processor and as in the earlier models, the camera, with 9.6 megapixel resolution, is capable of catching 3D still pictures. It has video recording functionality also.

The 3.8 inch glasses-free 3D effect display is one of the top rated 3D displays from Sharp.

Unlike other 3D enabled smartphones, the LYNX has digital TV tuner also. It also allows users to switch from 2D view to 3D view.

With the 3D display in this device you can convert your own photos to 3D and can watch mobile TV in 3D as well. Moreover, the LYNX supports mobile wallet and TV services also.

Presently running on the Android 2.1 platform, the LYNX 3D SH-03C is expected to get updated to Android 2.2 Froyo in the near future.  An upgrade to Froyo will give LYNX additional capabilities like Adobe Flash 10.1 support. It can enhance its tethering capabilities also.

LYNX is expected to be released in December in three colors- white, blue and black.
