    Default New Image Renderings Reveal Amazon's iPhone Competitor


    In approximately one month, Amazon will unveil a groundbreaking new smartphone that could give Apple's flagship iPhone 5s a legitimate run for its money as the hottest smartphone in the U.S. today.

    New leaked renders coming to light Thursday purportedly reveal the 3D sensing phone that Amazon plans to show off in the coming weeks. It should be noted, however, that while Amazon will likely confirm the device's existence and demonstrate the smartphone sometime in June, the device is not expected to ship before late summer or early fall.

    The phoneís innovative 3D interface and gesture-based controls could breathe new life into a somewhat stale smartphone market that hasn't been shaken up by anything truly revolutionary in an extended period of time.

    The image above is the first to reveal the design of Amazonís debut smartphone. Multiple trusted sources have verified the authenticity of the image, which was created for internal use by graphic designers at Amazon.
    "Our sources tell us the device will feature specs including a 4.7-inch display with 720p HD resolution, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, six individual camera modules and a highly customized version of Googleís Android operating system similar to the one seen on Amazonís various Kindle Fire tablets," BGR reports.

    Although pricing isn't yet known, we're told that Amazon's forthcoming smartphone "will rely on Amazonís own mobile app store for third-party software distribution."

    Apple v Amazon The court case lol if that's he design I can see a new court case! Can only see people already paying £80 a year for Amazon prime buying this phone! Or if they do as they have done with the kindle and sell it at loss then also the budget end of the market! But either way don't think it will temp many apple customers away!

    Windows UI is hideous...the Android OS on kindle fire is a joke too. I guess it's gonna come down to what's under the hood...quadcore snapdragon processor may be nice, but have to see how it plays... Android has always been choppy and laggish...

    Say what you want about Windows phones, but if I couldn't have an iPhone, I'd have a windows phone. It's still a smoother interface and generally a nicer experience than any Android.
    I don't know, actually I'd probably go back to Blackberry.

    Hey I like that iPhone, it looks great. When did Amazon start making iPhones anyway? Oh wait, we'll have to call it aPhone.
