Rumored Amazon smartphone render leaked with more detail

A few weeks ago, Boy Genius Report posted what they claimed was the first public image of Amazon's rumored upcoming smartphone. However, that picture was a bit dark and blurry and today the same site has posted up a new image that offers a much clearer and complete view of the rumored device.

The render, according to the story, was created internally at Amazon by graphics designers. Visually, it resembles Apple's iPhone with some elements of Samsung's Galaxy series and the HTC One. The report claims that the 4.7 inch smartphone, which doesn't have an official name yet, is supposed to be a rather large device but can still be used by one hand.

Previous rumors claim that the smartphone will have six cameras; a standard rear and front lens and four more front facing infrared cameras that will allow it to display 3D images that can be seen without glasses. The phone is also supposed to have motion gesture controls that will let users access functions, such as scrolling up an down a document, just by moving the phone.

Amazon is rumored to be using a highly modified version of Android, with its own app store, for its smartphone. BGR claims Amazon will announce it in late spring or early summer for a launch sometime in the third quarter of 2014.
