Excited about the iPhone 6? You might want to wait. If 3D screens and Amazon Prime are your thing, you might actually want to wait for something else:


This is what appears to be the first leaked images of Amazon's first smartphone which is rumoured to have six cameras capable of taking 3D-images.

As if that's not impressive enough, the phone may also come with a 3D-screen that doesn't require glasses to view.

Instead it will use a lenticular 3D screen which projects slightly different images to each eye.

This technology has been around for a couple of decades, but has the disadvantage having a very limited sweet-spot.

This is where the extra camera would come in. As well as a regular and a 'selfie' camera, four others would track the users eyes and adjust the sweet-spot accordingly.


Numerous sources have said it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, have 2GB of RAM and have a similar OS to Amazon tablets - IE based on Android, but operated entirely by Amazon.

Rumours of an Amazon Android device has been circulating for a while now with the Wall Street Journal last week reporting it would ship before the end of September.

Amazon are also said to be working on a lower specced and cheaper smartphone to be released after the main device.
