Update: Amazon has officially announced its 3D phone dubbed the Fire Phone. You can read the full breakdown here.
Amazon has just announced that it is holding a press event in Seattle on June 18th. The company says that it will unveil a new device at the event. Amazon is also letting anyone request an invite to it by simply filling out a form on its website.
The company also posted a video showing reactions to the new device by customers. One person remarked that “it moved with” them and another claimed that they’ve “never seen anything like” it before. All the customers are essentially moving their heads around with the device. It is widely expected to be a 3d-capable smartphone, which the company has allegedly been working on for quite a while.
Back in April, a report emerged claiming that Amazon was developing a device with 4 IR cameras for a 3d interface, in addition to a 4.7-inch display and 2GB of RAM. While it’s not confirmed that it will be powered by Android, most of Amazon’s devices are, albeit with an incredibly heavy skin. Amazon is also rumored to be working on its cellular plan, dubbed Prime Data.
You can sign-up to have the chance to attend Amazon’s event here. It will take place June 18th in Seattle.
Update: As several have pointed out, if you go to 0:40 in Amazon’s teaser video, you can see the very top of the phone. So, it’s pretty apparent that on June 18th, Amazon will unveil its phone.
