BGR has apparently gotten hold of the recently talked about Amazon smartphone, which is no mean feat actually. The Amazon smartphone has been a development in progress for a number of years already, so it is really interesting to see it finally come to fruition – making this the first of several own-brand smartphones. From afar, this flagship smartphone looks like a generic touchscreen handset template, but there will be two major focuses on this device – Amazon products and services, as well as a custom 3D interface.
Do bear in mind that what you see above happens to be a prototype device, where it comes in a protective shell that is meant to prevent people without the proper authorization from checking out the physical design of the handset. Other areas of the photos, too, have been blocked out or obscured for security purposes.
The first Amazon smartphone will allegedly run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, where it will be accompanied by the likes of 2GB RAM, powered by a customized version of Google’s Android operating system. This means if you have given Amazon’s tablets a go before, it will be somewhat similar in nature, too. With 720p HD resolution for the alleged 4.7″ display, this would not be able to compete with the high end devices from other manufacturers. Other than that, the main camera at the back is said to feature a 13MP shooter, while there is also a front-facing camera of unknown resolution count. So far, there has been no name attached to this prototype – anyone wants to warrant a guess?
