Amazon introduces its long waited Fire Phone

Amazon Fire Phone

Amazon introduced its Fire Phone yesterday, and announced some amazing offers along with the phone purchase. It’s been a long time, the rumor was going on about Amazon Smartphone. Finally, Amazon has started taking orders, and will start shipping from 25th July. The phone doesn’t have Android OS as it was rumored, but the Fire OS 3.5.0 that seems like based on Android OS concept but doesn’t come along with the Google services.

As it was rumored to be a glass-free 3D smartphone, it’s not like the same 3D where pictures or videos pop out the screen, but display has depth. It looks deep inside that makes you fee like you are there. Amazon Fire Phone has four dynamic perspective sensor at the front of the phone which responds according to your move. For ex: If you are playing a game, can take the game’s character viewpoint, and can move your head to view obstacles, corners and other objects OR  you can simply tilt the phone to scroll down when surfing internet, you don’t even need to touch the display.

Amazon has proved with the launch of Fire Phone that Amazon has not left behind in terms of smartphone technology. Amazon Fire Phone has Firefly Technology that can identify texts even from the posters, business cards and magazines, and you can use it to make calls, send emails and so on. You can also put the camera on a book, movies or TV shows, and Amazon will find it for you from Amazon Store, and you can purchase it.

Technical Specifications

Amazon Fire Phone incorporates a 4.7 inches HD LCD display with 1280 x 720 resolution at 315 ppi. It’s not really a phablet, and the users fond of big display are not really going to but, but the tech lovers would buy it because it’s equipped with latest technology and great hardware configuration.

Amazon Fire Phone has a 13 megapixels primary and 2.1 megapixels front camera, and you can record the video with 1080 pixels resolution with both the camera.  Its primary camera can even leave Samsung Galaxy S5 and other smartphones behind in terms of some shots as it is also equipped with optical image stabilization(OIS), f/2.0 5-element wide aperture lens.

I already told about the Operating system as it has Fire OS 3.5.0, and the other technical specs are also great. Amazon Fire Phone is equipped with Snapdragon 800 chipset2.2 GHz Quad-core processor, Adreno 330 Graphics and 2GB RAM. 

As far as storage is concerned, users have the option to choose either 32GB or 64GB storage, but remember there is no card slot to expand the memory. By the way, 32/64 GB is enough for a smartphone.
