This is Amazon’s Smartphone with additional 4 cameras for 3D effects on screen

We have recently reported that Amazon will be launching its own smartphone with glass-free 3D display screen in second half of 2014, and now we’ve got leaked photos of Amazon’s first smartphone prototypes.



The photos accessed exclusively by BGR, where it said that the device will look much-alike normal smartphones in design, but the company has spent years of time to develop better user experience with Amazon’s own products and service integration with unique glass-free 3D interface.

The leaked images shows a protective case covering the smartphone, may be, to prevent unauthorized access to the physical design of the smartphone.

Amazon will be launching 2 or more devices in third quarter of 2014 – one with high-end specifications and another one is an entry-level smartphone with affordable price-tag. The first handset with high-end specs will be powered by latest Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, forked version of Android OS, 4.7-inch display, 720p HD display screen, 13MP rear camera and unknown front camera.

But the key feature would be the glass-free 3D user interface and the company could also feature a Mayday button for faster customer support. However, the name of the smartphone hasn’t been revealed yet.

BGR also reports that Amazon’s first smartphone will feature a total of six cameras. Two of them are front and rear camera, where the other four cameras could be the low-power infrared front-facing cameras to work with the smartphone’s 3D effects by adjusting with other sensors. May be these 4 cameras will track the user’s face to place the contents in the display to show the best 3D effect on-screen.


Amazon is also focusing on launching many 3D supported third-party applications during the launch of the smartphone, by recruiting quality developers and by releasing APIs to third-party app developers to bring in more supported apps.

Amazon would unveil the first smartphone in July and begin shipping it from September onwards, while the second, affordable handset could debut at later time. It’s also learned that, initially,  the company will be launching its smartphones in United States only.
