Amazon Smartphone Rumors Now Include Photos

| News

News of Amazon’s impending phone release was reported last week, and now those reports are backed up with photographs from Boy Genius Report. The site has an in-depth report on the as-yet-unnamed device, including notable features such as a 4.7” screen, 720p resolution, and six cameras. Yes, six.

Those reportedly include a 13 megapixel rear camera, one front facing selfie/video chat camera, and four additional cameras that work in conjunction with sensors to create a glasses-free 3D effects, one of the biggest features that differentiates Amazon’s smartphone from others.

These effects are reported to trickle down through the entire system, so wallpapers and app icons will have dimension, and the same methods will be used to create different views in a map app as well as in Amazon’s own stores.

BGR’s sources give a timeline of an announcement in the next couple of months with a release later this summer.
