Amazon Set to Launch a New Device on June 18, Possibly a 3D Smartphone

Amazon is set to launch a new product this month at an event in Seattle on June 18. 

CEO Jeff Bezos is set to take the stage to announce something that the company is promising will be very exciting. Here is a teaser from Amazon showing people’s reactions when using the device, without ever showing the device itself:

Even though we don’t know what the device is going to be, rumours are suggesting that the company will unveil a smartphone with a 3D display. Over the past several months many rumours have suggested that Amazon is working on 3D display technology, which will reportedly be introduced in its first smartphone at the launch event in Seattle. 

The phone will likely run a heavily modified version of Android, just like Amazon’s line of Kindle Fire tablets. That means you’ll have to get all your apps and services from Amazon’s own app store. 

Amazon is also teasing the event with an image of the corner of the device they are expected to announce (seen below). The company is allowing anyone to request an invitation to the event, however the warn that there is limited space available.
