Amazon teases the Fire Phone, can recognize 70 million objects

Posted on Thursday, June 19 2014 @ 12:53:46 CEST by


As rumored for weeks, Amazon finally revealed its very first smartphone. Called the Fire Phone, this model is based on a modified version of Android and features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.2GHz quad-core processor, Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB RAM, 32GB/64GB internal storage, a 2400mAh battery and a 4.7" screen with 1280 x 720 pixels.

The device offers a sort of a 3D interface, the front corners have four infrared cameras to track your head and eyes at all times to create the illusion of a 3D interface. The phone also features Firefly, a feature that uses the phone's microphone and 13 megapixel camera to recognize products that can be bought via Amazon. The Firefly database contains 70 million products, the feature can not only interpret images and text but is also able to recognize movies, TV shows and music.

The bad news is that the phone is quite heavy, at 5.64 ounces it's much heavier than the 4.59 ounce Nexus 5 and the 3.95 ounce iPhone 5S. The Fire Phone costs $199 but it's exclusively available with a two-year AT&T contract (you do get a one year free Amazon Prime membership though). Availability is slated for July 25th. For a more detailed look at the Fire Phone, check out ARS Technica's coverage.
