Amazon 3D smartphone to be released on June 2014, rumors say

Amazon’s most anticipated 3D smartphone will soon hit the market, rumors said.

This flagship smartphone may look much like any other phone out in the market today but rumors said that Amazon spent years to make it unique from the rest of the phones that we are familiar right now.

Reports said that Amazon has two main focuses in creating its flagship phone, namely Amazon products and services, and a custom 3D interface.

Rumors said that a number of areas of the phone?s software will use Amazon?s glasses-free 3D effects. Reports revealed that the company used this effect in order to make Amazon smartphones look different from the rest of the phones in the market. One example is the wallpaper of the upcoming phone. Due to this effect, Amazon?s new phone will have special wallpapers that shift the moment the users tilt the smartphone from any angle.

Also, the 3D effects will help users see three-dimensional product images across Amazon?s various stores simply by shifting the position of the phone.

It could be remembered that almost a month ago, a well known analyst said, ?We predict Amazon (US) will launch its own brand smartphone in 3-6 months, using the same hardware strategy as used for its e-reader and tablet.” KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said, ?The supply chain will start stocking up materials in 2Q14 for production. We estimate required components will amount to 700k-1.2mn units, and assembly to 300-600k units. Related suppliers will start to see benefits in 2Q14.?

?Given the highly competitive smartphone market, Amazon will have to provide users with a unique experience to differentiate its phone from other brands. It would do this by integrating the smartphone with its own services such as e-commerce,? Kuo said.

Amazon?s 3D smartphone is expected to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, a 4.7-inch display (300-320ppi), a plastic housing, a 13-megapixel main camera supplied by Sony, secondary cameras supplied by Primax, and a battery sized between 2,000 and 2,400 mAh.

?The key feature of the smartphone, we believe, will be the six cameras,? Kuo wrote. ?Aside from the main camera, which is used to take pictures, and the sub camera, used for video conferencing (these are both found in all smartphones), we think the other four cameras will be used for gesture control, allowing users to operate the smartphone without touching the touch panel.?
