Amazon announces the Fire Phone, available July 25th


Amazon Fire Phone

Amazon has announced its first smartphone, and it's called the Fire Phone. Jeff Bezos is still on stage giving us a rundown of the long-awaited device, but here's what we know about it so far:

  • The Fire Phone sports a 4.7-inch display
  • It's powered by a quad-core 2.2GHz processor, 2GB RAM, and an Adreno 330 graphics chip
  • It sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and an f/2.0 five element lens
  • The Fire Phone uses a multi-camera array that powers its 3D user interface
  • Dual stereo speakers which are aligned for landscape mode for watching media
  • It ships with flat-cabled, tangle-free magnetic earbuds
  • Owners of the Fire Phone get unlimited cloud storage of all the photos they take with the device in Amazon Cloud Drive (huge!)
  • The Amazon Firefly feature allows you to use the phone to recognize over 100 million items, plus any text around you. You can then interact with it immediately, in a matter of seconds.
  • Obviously, all Amazon services will be built in--Prime Video, Prime Music, Kindle, WhisperSync, and even the MayDay button for customer service
  • The 32GB Fire Phone will cost $199 with two-year contract, and is exclusive to AT&T. You can get the 64GB version for $299.
  • You can pre-order the Fire Phone now--it ships on July 25th and includes one-year of Amazon Prime
