United States : AMAZON unveils its first ever smartphone

June 22, 2014

Amazon has announced its first ever smartphone on Wednesday.

This new phone helps shoppers by using six cameras that are capable of making sense of its user's face and its surrounding.

The e device's most important feature, dubbed as Firefly," uses audio and object recognition technology to identify products and present the user with ways to buy the items through Amazon.

For eg., users can simply capture a picture of a book, and Firefly will provide its title and author, give additional information about it and offer ways to purchase it.

Amazon says there is room in the market for something different, seven years after Apple's iPhone took over the category.
