Amazon To Reveal '3D Smartphone' Today

June 18, 2014

Amazon is expected to release its first smartphone later today tipped to feature a holographic 3D interface.

Earlier this month Amazon released a teaser video showing people looking at the device which was just out of shot and moving their heads from side to side while looking impressed.

Leaked photos and details suggest there are four infrared cameras, situated in each of the four corners of the phone's front.

These reportedly track the position of the user's face and eyes, which help it to render an apparent 3D interface on the screen.

That could allow for users to move things around on screen without actually touching it.

Leaks suggest the phone's display will measure 11cm diagonally, with a low pixel density compared to other devices.

Inside, it will pack a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM.

It is expected to go on sale in September, putting it head-to-head with the hotly anticipated iPhone 6.

A launch event is scheduled later today in Seattle.
