Amazon Smartphone photos and specs surface, it's a 3D phone!
It's no secret that Amazon have been working on their own smartphone. Now the first images and details of the specification of the Amazon Smartphone have leaked ahead of its rumoured 3rd quarter 2014 release.
The Amazon Smartphone adopts a design that somewhat resembles the iPhone 5S. It's brushed metal back-cover gives it a premium feel and its inclusion was no doubt influenced by the success of the aluminium HTC One and its successor, the HTC One M8.
These days every smartphone needs a unique feature and the Amazon Smartphone is 3D. It's apparently got an array of 4 front-facing infrared cameras on the back used “to track the position of the user’s face and eyes in relation to the phone’s display." This allows Amazon's software to deliver glasses-free 3D (like the Nintendo 3DS) and will also be used for head-gesture control.
Amazon's Smartphone is fronted by a 4.7-inch display that runs at a 1280*800 pixel resolution. It's apparently powered by a quad-core Snapdragon processor , has 2GB of RAM and a total of 6 camera modules. Just like the Kindle Fire tablet range it'll come pre-loaded with Amazon's customised version of the Android platform.
The Amazon Smartphone is expected to be released in the 3rd quarter of 2014 and we're expecting a highly competitive price-point (around £250). It shouldn't be too long until Amazon officially unveil their latest creation and as soon as they do you'll be the first to know.
One thing we are questioning is whether people still want 3D displays? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment below.
