Trending: Amazon narrows HQ2 search to 20 cities, moving to next phase in contest for $5B economic prize


We had a chance to see some parts of Amazon’s new smartphone last month, but now Boy Genius Report has leaked photos that provide a clearer picture of the actual design.

amazonlogo11BGR today posted the rendered image you see above that was reportedly created by Amazon designers for internal use. The design of the device appears to mimic qualities of existing popular smartphones like Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy.

BGR previously reported that Amazon’s smartphone, due for release this summer, features five front-facing cameras, four of which will reportedly be used to allow users to see 3D effects without any headgear. The four cameras are low-power infrared sensors, BGR noted, and will be able to track your head movements. The idea is to make wallpapers, app icons and even products in Amazon stores become three-dimensional.

Other features of the Android-based phone include a 4.7-inch display, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and 2GB of RAM. According to BGR, Amazon also plans to release a lower-end smartphone later this year as well.
