The day Amazon revealed its new breathtaking 3D smartphone has arrived! Yesterday, after months of corner whispering, leaks, hypothesis and rumors, Amazon’s icon Jeff Bezos finally showcased the Amazon Fire smartphone.
We were all right in our assumptions, the phone does feature the dynamic perspective technology, which in turn allows the users to “see” in 3D. To make all things clear, the 3D perspective is provided by four infrared, front-facing cameras that can trace the users’ face and eyes and tell the phone about their location.
Tilting the phone in front of your eyes or side to side will allow you to scroll through websites, toggle through screens, and render in 3D perspective objects like buildings or art creations.
This feature was said to change everything for the smartphone world, as it proved itself being spectacular, futuristic and mind – blowing in the same time. Or maybe some are more enthusiastic than others.
But the Amazon Fire smartphone is more than the eye can see. As a smartphone, it doesn’t differ much from other premium handsets. It sports a 4.7-inch screen with a 16:9 aspect ratio, it is slim enough, sturdy, well – built and similar in many ways to the Kindle Fire tablet at least in the applications department and the perks reserved for the Prime members.
However, the Amazon Fire smartphone is not totally dedicated to everybody in the world. Jeff Bezos clearly stated the phone is not here to take over the reign of Apple and Samsung smartphones in the market share, nor to become a world – wide popular gadget. This phone is dedicated to a very specific niche and that niche is represented by Amazon Prime members and compulsive shoppers. And this is not a bad thing at all, considering Amazon is still a retail giant. Let’s see what this is all about:
The phone’s most significant feature, called “Firefly,” employs audio and object recognition technology to identify products and present the user with ways to purchase the items through Amazon. Users can simply snap a photo of a book, for instance, and Firefly will offer up its title and author, give more information about it and provide ways to buy it through Amazon with a single click.
This is a ground – braking feature and if you don’t get its monumental aspect, just wait a bit longer. The Fire skill of this phone goes beyond recognizing around 100 million products. It can recognize and pull out words, websites and characters in a multitude of real life situations.
The Amazon Fire smartphone will make shopping on Amazon a no – brainer, while it will carry the users in a 3D world they have never seen before. And if this is not a game – changer, few things are. From July 25 and starting at a price of $199.99 with a 2 years contract with AT&T, the Amazon Fire smartphone can be yours.
