Smartphone from Amazon can occur this year?
Last year, in the fall, there was a steady amount of rumors related to the (possible) future smartphone on Amazon. First out information that revealed the variant in which these devices are free. This, unfortunately, was refuted by the company. Later we heard a rumor that the apparatus can be manufactured by HTC. We must not forget the information that the phone can be equipped with a special camera that allows 3D Gesture Control. And with that, the rumors are over. Now, several months later, again resumed.
Codename of a future phone is Project Aria, but that’s just part of the new information. Significant news is that Amazon began to plan its distribution network – where and how to sell phones. Rumors suggest that there was a meeting with potential international partners, focusing on emerging markets. Their potential is huge, but in the case of Amazon such an undertaking would be difficult as the company earns from its basic services that are not available in many countries. From Amazon have spoken with providers in the U.S., but the interest was not particularly big. We are now seeking and hardware partner to produce the phones.
The new information is not so much, but means that Amazon began seriously working on the idea of own samartfon to come up by the end of this year.
