amazon smartphone 640x386

Recently there has been a rise in speculation surrounding Amazon’s first smartphone. The company is reportedly gearing up to launch its own brand smartphone in the coming months and it is believed to have certain features that will make it stand out from the pack. Earlier this month a purported image of a prototype leaked online though that unit was said to be covered by a protective housing so we couldn’t really get a good look at the design. Now though a proper render has been leaked.

The folks at BGR have published this render claiming that multiple “trusted sources” have verified the authenticity of this image. Apparently this render was created “for internal use” by graphic designers at Amazon.

The smartphone is said to have a 4.7-inch 720p display, a quadcore processor from Qualcomm coupled with 2GB RAM as well as six individual camera modules which will power its 3D gesture tracking system.

Apparently Amazon is going to change the way we interact with smartphones with its first handset, which is said to heavily rely upon 3D gestures for control. The underlying software might very well be Android though it is expected to be heavily forked just like it is on the company’s tablets.

A recent report claimed that Amazon’s first smartphone might be released in the third quarter of 2014, but the company itself hasn’t even commented on the existence of this device, so we’ll have to wait for official word to be absolutely sure.
