Companies are working to introduce more sophisticated games to mobile handsets, which will have powerful graphics chips to make the realistic images possible.
The switch from stubby cartoon figures to graceful golfers and lifelike superheroes is likely to be swift, said Neil Trevett, the president of the Khronos Group, an industry association that works on 3D standards for cell phones. “The same thing that happened in the mid-’90s to bring 3D graphics to PCs is happening now with cell phones,” he said, “only it’s all happening about three or four times faster. We call it cell phone time.”
The rapid move to 3D graphics will also get a boost from increased screen quality and faster computing capabilities, he said.
