Amazon on the verge of 3D smartphone launch

Amazon has sent out invitations to journalists and developers to attend the reveal of a new piece of hardware on 18 June and the expectations are that it will reveal its 3D smartphone.

3D without glasses

It is no secret that Amazon is developing its own smartphone and apparently it has been working on a 3D-enabled (without glasses) device since 2012. The 3D image would be visible from multiple sides, eliminating the need to keep the device in a certain position. Amazon is allegedly collaborating with Foxconn, the company that also supplies Apple its iPhones.

 

Amazon once started its hardware focus with e-readers, then tablets and the recent appearance of its own set-top box Amazon Fire TV. It has teased this new step with a YouTube video, which shows people talking about a device you cannot see in full view.

 

Saturated market?

Amazon consistently denied the development of its own smartphone as it felt that was a saturated market, which means it remains to be seen whether Amazon launches its own range of smartphones to cut into this market. If it does, these devices will definitely have other Amazon services perfectly integrated.
