Report: 3D Nintendo handheld sports widescreen and 4:3 displays

Infendo

A wifi filing and leaked images appear to confirm that Nintendo’s unnamed portable, now codenamed “CTR” in a FCC filing, will have both a 3D stereoscopic widescreen display and a traditional 4:3 ratio one when it launches later this year (or next?).

The use of CTR is significant. Previous DS versions, like the DSi and XL, went by codenames TWL and UTL, respectively. The use of CTR, a completely new naming convention, suggests a radically new kind of portable.

The FCC filing also revealed some previously known features, including a backwards-compatible DS cartridge slot and SD car port. Stereo speakers were also included in the filing.
