Neowin reports Amazon has scheduled a press event on June 18th to reveal a new product. The company didn't reveal much information but it's widely believed that Amazon will announce its first smartphone.

There will be two versions; a lower-end and a higher-end version. The higher-end model reportedly has a 4.7" screen with 720p HD resolution and an unspecified Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. One of the special features of the Amazon smartphone will be 3D, the device features five front-facing cameras and has a glasses-free 3D interface. The four extra cameras are located in the corners of the device, they are infrared cameras designed to track your face and eyes so the display can adjust to the location of your eyes to render the best 3D effects.
The cameras are located in each of the corners and you can clearly see them in the image above and one in the center of the device for video calls. The corner cameras are supposedly to help out with the 3D visual effects that will be the crowning feature of the device.

The black plastic cladding you see on the device is a protective shell and once removed, the phone looks like many other modern smartphones. The device pictured is one of two devices the company will reportedly launch in the very near future; the above device will be a higher end model the device not pictured will be a lower-end model.
