Amazon '3D' Smartphone Latest: Features, Release Date And Price


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.
