Experts say it's a blend of Apple, Google and HTC handsets

London: The first clear pictures of Amazon’s much-rumoured 3D handset have been revealed — and show off the four cameras used to create a ‘floating screen’ effect.

Taking cues? The best pictures of Amazon’s smartphone till date. The handset has a bevelled edge similar to the iPhone 5

Set to be unveiled in June, the device will use retina-tracking technology to make images on the smartphone’s display appear to ‘float above the screen like a hologram and appear three-dimensional at all angles.’

The latest images also reveal a relatively thin handset — that looks a lot like Apple’s iPhone.

“Multiple trusted sources have verified the authenticity of the image, which was created for internal use by graphic designers at Amazon,” a website reported.

The handset appears to take design cues from Apple’s iPhone 5 and Google’s Nexus handset.

“As can be seen in this new image published exclusively by BGR, Amazon’s phone will feature an overall look that is similar to many full touch smartphones currently on the market,” the website added.
