Amazon’s first smartphone revealed in leaked photos – via @verge

Amazon’s long-awaited smartphone is apparently right around the corner, and today images of what looks to be an early prototype have been leaked by BGR. Unfortunately the pictured device is surrounded by a protective, screwed-on case that conceals the phone’s true physical design. BGR claims the phone’s screen measures 4.7 inches, which would make it noticeably smaller than the latest flagships from Samsung and HTC. It’s also said to be a 720p display, which falls a bit short of the now-standard 1080p resolution found on the Galaxy S5 and HTC One. Amazon’s smartphone is reportedly powered by an unspecified Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 2GB of RAM.

Interestingly, the shots reveal a total of five front-facing cameras. One will presumably used for pictures, video chat, and interacting with Amazon customer support via the company’s signature Mayday service. But the four cameras located at each corner are more interesting, as they’re the secret behind Amazon’s “3D” experience.
