Amazon's new smartphone unveiled

As the smartphone market continues to get more and more competitive, one company that has yet to enter the ring is Amazon.  The large online retailer has no past history of experience in the space, but all that soon is going to change.

Thanks to BGR, we now have a first look at what Amazon’s smartphone is going to look like.  Picture below, we can see Amazon has a pretty standard design with an aesthetically pleasing screen.


Amazon’s phone looks to incorporate quite a few design cues from its competition in the market.  As seen in the image, it looks as though Amazon took what it liked from Apple, Samsung, and a few others to create its overall concept.  The phone is reported to be a bit larger than most of the market though.

Amazon is looking to debut its phone in late spring or early summer, and has mentioned that it will be the first in what it expects to be a line of smartphone offerings.  Amazon is projected to use its own mobile app store for third-party software downloads.

A few spec details have been released including a 4.7-inch display with 720p HD resolution, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, six individual camera modules and an Android operating system similar to Amazon’s tablet offerings.

Keep an eye out to get your hands on Amazon’s first crack into the smartphone market in the coming months.
