A first look at Amazon's new smartphone

A first look at Amazon's new smartphone
BGR

Amazon announced its first smartphone, a 3-D smartphone, yesterday, and now we've got pictures of it.

BGR got exclusive photos of the phone today. What's most remarkable is how unremarkable the phone is!

Part of that is security - the phone in the pictures is locked in to a shell that prevents us from getting a good look at the sides and back of the phone. Some of the photos also have been blocked or obscured by BGR.

What we do know is that Amazon's first smartphone will have two versons. The one pictured will be a 3-D device, and another will be a lower-end entry-level phone.

The most novel aspect of Amazon’s upcoming smartphone is its 3D software interface and the hardware mechanism that enables it.

Our sources state that the new Amazon phone includes a total of six cameras.

The device’s extra cameras are 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 make constant adjustments to the positioning of on-screen elements, altering the perspective of visuals on the screen.

BGR has more on the exclusive.
