Amazon expected to announce 3D sensing smartphone at June 18 event

Amazon logoThe photo above, which appears to be an Amazon branded portable, is accompanied by a teaser video showing people handling a small device and commenting on what looks to be 3D motion tracking technology.

Interestingly, the pictured device — at least the one corner that is revealed — is nearly identical to to renders purportedly leaked in April. At the time, it was reported that Amazon's graphic designers created the images.

In October, AppleInsider reported exclusively on Amazon's rumored device, noting the smartphone will likely sport six cameras for 3D imaging, a 4.7-inch touchscreen display and Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

The three-dimensional user interface is expected to be the handset's main draw, with users able to manipulate onscreen objects like wallpapers and icons via gestures. From the video released today, it looks like the phone will react to head motions as well, offering an enhanced type of parallax view seen in Apple's iOS 7.

Amazon's event is slated for June 18 and those interested can request an invitation through a special page the company's website.
