When the 3D phone was leaked last month, sources pointed out that the prototype was encased in a protective housing to prevent unauthorized people from seeing its actual design. If BGR's new report is true, then this could be our first real glimpse of Amazon's long-rumored smartphone.
Multiple sources reportedly verified the authenticity of the image, BGR reports.
If you'll look at the image again, you'll notice that the design isn't that remarkable. However, sources said that the phone will sport a larger display, perhaps a 4.7-inch panel.
Previous rumors noted that the phone will have a glass-free 3D screen and six separate cameras to support 3D technology. Amazon's 3D phone is also rumored to rely on zero-touch controls and tilt gestures. And, best of all, it will reportedly offer free access to Amazon's Prime services, all thanks to a special contract with AT&T.
