Amazon said to be building a glasses-free 3D smartphone for release later this year

Amazon is gearing up to announce its own smartphone as soon as June ahead of a supposed September release, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The report noted that the distinguishing feature may be a 3D display that uses retina-tracking to show a hologram-like image without requiring extra glasses.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

Rumors of an Amazon phone have been around for years. Last fall, a new round of reports prompted Amazon to deny that it was working on a free smartphone with no contract.

Amazon’s hardware division has built up plenty of experience from its Kindle e-readers and tablets, so the addition of a phone wouldn’t be much of a jump. Last week, the company announced the Fire TV, a set-top box with gaming features.
