We already know that the device will boast four IR cameras on the front, which will track the user s face and adjust the UI accordingly so as to give a 3D effect. According to report, these cameras will use Japan-based Omron s Okao Vision face sensing technology and the end result is a stereoscopic effect on an LCD screen. Users will be able to tilt the smartphone to access hidden side menus and the phone s gyro sensor and accelerometer will ensure fast and smooth response.

Amazon is said to have given developers the freedom to use these features to add an extra dimension to their apps. But initially, this functionality will be limited to only a few Amazon apps. For example, when using the maps, by tilting the phone you will be able to change the viewpoint on the map, or when shopping for products you will be able to see them from different angles.
The report however doesn t reveal anything new about the smartphone s specifications. From what we know so far, Amazon s smartphone is expected to feature a 4.7-inch 720p display, Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear camera.
