Purported official image of the upcoming Amazon smartphone made an appearance. The image is reportedly the work of graphic designers at Amazon and has been verified as the real deal.
At a quick glance, the yet to be annoucned Amazon phone looks like a mashup of design elements from Apple iPhone (particularly the iPhone 5c) and the Samsung Galaxy S family (per that button below the display). The image reveals all sides of the device, except for its top. Unsurprisingly, the handset looks decidedly understated, much like the Kindle Fire of tablets.
This is not the first time the Amazon smartphone leaks. A couple of weeks ago, we saw live images of the handset in prototype casing. The positioning of the buttons, the SIM slot, as well as the look of the earpiece from those photos fall right in line with today’s image.
The Amazon smartphone is tipped to feature a 4.7” 720p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC with quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, and six camera modules for 3D UI effects. The OS will be a highly modified Android build as seen in the Kindle Fire tablets and will only utilize the Amazon app store.
Amazon is tipped to launch its first smartphone at some point in Q3. AT&T is expected to be an exclusive partner. It will offer the device with a special monthly Prime Data package.

3D! 3D! 3D! I'm an iPhone user, but give me 3D, and I will buy that phone as my spare phone.
