FirePhone Announced by Amazon
Amazon’s First Ever Phone
Firephone is the most advanced phone ever built.
Yep, it’s a phone alright. Amazon officially unveiled the Fire Phone today at a special press event held in Seattle. Consistent with the rumors, Amazon’s first-ever phone has a 4.7-inch Gorilla Glass display with an HD-resolution screen (720p). That makes it the same size as the Moto X, which was also supposed to be a phone for the masses. It also has a rubberized frame with aluminum buttons, a quad-core 2.2GHz processor, Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. As for the camera, there’s a 13-megapixel rear-facing one equipped with an f/2.0 lens and optical image stabilization and the ability to capture 1080p video. The phone’s display will have 590 nits of brightness, dynamic image contrast and a “circular polarizer,” which will likely be used to combat glare. There’s also a dedicated camera key and, luckily for all you amateur photogs, it’ll come with free unlimited cloud storage for photos as well.
