TruTower readers are no stranger to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S3 or its (questionable) leaks.

The only reliable information out there appears to be the GT-i9300 and GT-i9308 codenames on Samsung’s support page. There have been rumors from executives about the quad-core chipset and, of course, plenty of rumors regarding a release date (or three).

The folks at Engadget received the following statement from Samsung that addresses one rumor we haven’t covered because of how farfetched it seemed: the possibility of incorporating 3D technology into the Galaxy S3:

Although Samsung Electronics is constantly exploring new technologies for our mobile devices, we have no immediate plan to include displays featuring 3D technology in our upcoming smartphones.

So it looks like Samsung’s interest in 3D isn’t quite there yet, so Samsung fans shouldn’t expect a 3D display from the company anytime soon. With plenty of competitors out there already making the move, it’s possible that 3D could be part of Samsung’s reality in the future, but not in the near future from what it looks like.

Who knows though? We could be unboxing a shiny, new Samsung Galaxy S3D in 2018 and feeling that same excitement we first felt when unboxing our Nintendo 3DS game systems for the first time in 2011.
