WILL AMA­ZON SUR­PRISE THE MAR­KET WITH A 3D SMART­PHONE?

Qatar Today - - DEVELOPMENT > TECH TALK -

Leaked im­ages of Ama­zon's first smart­phone have spurred ru­mours about its 3D ca­pa­bil­i­ties, po­ten­tially giv­ing it an edge in the bur­geon­ing smart­phone mar­ket.

Aleaked re­veal of the yet un­named de­vice from Ama­zon came with a sur­prise ob­ser­va­tion. The phone, with a 4.7 inch dis­play and 720p HD res­o­lu­tion, sup­pos­edly has six cam­eras – one in the rear and five in the front. Apart from the reg­u­lar func­tions of one front-fac­ing cam­era, the other four, along with em­bed­ded sen­sors, will al­legedly be used to cre­ate 3D view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for users by track­ing eye move­ments. It was re­ported that the com­pany may use the 3D tech­nol­ogy to show­case its own prod­ucts, al­low­ing users to ex­plore three-di­men­sional prod­uct im­ages. Ama­zon is re­port­edly work­ing with app de­vel­op­ers to find more in­no­va­tive uses of this tech­nol­ogy, for ex­am­ple, maps ap­pli­ca­tions that will change the view of var­i­ous ob­jects on the screen with the move­ment of the phone. The Wall Street Jour­nal has that Ama­zon will an­nounce the de­vice by June, with plans to ship it to cus­tomers by Septem­ber.
