Analysts have long believed that Amazon could be making a smartphone to challenge Apple and Samsung in the handset space. Hence, Amazon's first 3D smartphone has been constantly under media glare since past few months.
However, now it looks like a ‘credible' lead has surfaced in respect to Amazon's first attempt at making a handset.
Amazon's first alleged phone has been sort of revealed, if a new leak render is to be believed.
A picture obtained by BGR shows the front and back side of a handset with the Amazon logo. The website is claiming graphics designers at Amazon created the render and "multiple trusted sources" have verified its authenticity.
That being said, the handset in question is assumed to look closer to the render which has been illustrated by Amazon graphic designers for internal use.
The image shows off the phone with some sort of large tiles (hints at UI) alongside three buttons on the side. On the back side, you can see the phone features regular Amazon logo, and two speakers grills present at the bottom.
Talking about the phone's design, in many ways, it resembles to the top ranked phones already available in the market, such as the Samsung Galaxy S5, iPhone 5S and the BlackBerry Z10.
Though the phone may look traditional, but in reality it could be altogether a new breed of device.
The same blog site last week reported that Amazon's first phone will have a "unique combination of cameras, sensors and software to dramatically change the way users interact with a smartphone".
Amazon's first phone is said to feature the 3D-capable sensors. The device is tipped to feature six camera modules, four of which are VGA cameras.
Other potential rumored specs include: a 4.7-inch 720p HD display and support for 3D, a quad-core processor powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB of RAM, a13MP rear-facing camera, and a highly customizable version of Google's Android OS.
Reportedly, Amazon is tipped to launch the phone sometime in third quarter of 2014. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates
