Amazon?s ?Fire Phone? is finally going public and as to be expected from the brand, this latest smartphone from Amazon will be launched at a very pocket-friendly and competitive price.

Amazon announced the Fire Phone recently, even before AT&T posted the product specifics and pricing at their official website. The Amazon Fire Phone will be available in a variety of versions which differ in storage space. The 32GB variant will be $199 and the 64GB one will be at $299. This is according to AT&T?s pricing. It would require, at least, a two-year contract with them. Off-contract would cost the Fire Phone $649.99 and $749.99 respectively.

Fire Phone will be AT&T exclusive as of the moment.

The smartphone will sport a 4.7? screen, 2.2 Ghz processor, powered by Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM and 13-megapixel camera with the aperture value of f/2.0, which is very bright in most conditions and is very good for a smartphone at this price range.

The handset will also have this feature called ?Firefly?, which will be using a dedicated button to recognize stuff like phone numbers, barcodes, QR codes, CDs, DVDs, etc to streamline things, like buying stuff.

It would also be the first smartphone to feature ?Dynamic Perspective? interface. To be precise, this is something between 3D and parallax. It automatically adjusts the 3D level to match how you look at its screen. This would be present with wallpapers and lockscreens, but some noticeable effect can also be observed on building renders with maps, and similar applications. This is not to be mistaken with an actual 3D display, however, but it gives a strikingly similar effect of letting you see more detail as you move your head while viewing the phone?s screen.

Aside from these cool features, the smartphone will also come along with a pair of tangle-free magnetic headphones, unlimited photo storage on Amazon cloud drive, various built-in apps commonly seen with Amazon devices like HBO, Netflix, ESPN, etc., and a second screen that has a thing called ?X-ray?, which you can use to learn about the details on the video you?re currently watching on Amazon T.V.

The phone ships out on July 25, but Pre-order is now available for Amazon?s Fire Phone.
