Amazon has two phones, one inexpensive and the other more expensive, in the pipeline. The expensive one called Smith, has a 3D eye-tracking user interface to boot and other is a value phone with Fire OS.

Amazon was rumored to have been tinkering away at a phone. Recently, the news of not one but two phones came out. The first one of these is codenamed “Smith”. It employs 3D in its structure and functioning. Smith has four frontal cameras on all four sides of the mobile. These can keep a record of a user’s head movements and then produce 3D results in the interface. The user base could see objects beyond the edges of the screen. 

The basic function of the phone is to relate real time objects with products in the Amazon Store so people could buy them. It is a wild card alright. The project looks like an in-house one and it won’t be released this year. 

As for the second phone, the hearsay regarding it is extreme indeed. That it will be free of cost already points in the direction of a very nominal rate. It doesn’t carry the 3D features of the Smith. And it too will not debut this year. Amazon may be facing staff issues. 

That is why it has been circulating and rotating staff so that the project may be completed. All this goes on in Amazon’s famous Lab126. Its Kindle Fire tablets are hot property alright and a set-top box is in the experimental stages. Amazon won’t be giving up on electronic goods any time soon.
