Amazon is expected to Launched its first smartphone in June equipped with 3D capabilities, according to a report.
Sources told The Wall Street Journal that the web retailer has already demonstrated its hardware to developers and intends to begin shipping the device by late September.
The handset will reportedly use retina-tracking technology embedded in four front-facing cameras or sensors, to create a 3D effect similar to a hologram, without the need for glasses.
It’s claimed that the technology can also detect a person’s eye movement, as well as the closeness between the screen and user’s face, which will automatically zoom into images.
Rumours of a 3D-capable Amazon smartphone have been rife for sometime. In May 2013 it was claimed that the device is one of two Amazon handsets in development, while a later report suggested the device would feature a 13-megapixel camera on the rear and a 12-megapixel camera on the front.
HTC has also been linked to Amazon’s smartphone efforts in the past, having previously developed smartphones for third-party tech businesses such as Facebook.
Amazon recently revealed a new shopping accessory device called Amazon Dash, which allows users to scan or say items and add it to a shopping list.
