We’ve been hearing regarding an Amazon-branded smartphone for over a year now. Expectations has died down in the last few months, however the rumors have increasing up again, courtesy of KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Having properly expected the iPhone 5S and 5C availableness in 2013, Kuo issued a note to shoppers that declared Amazon’s smartphone would be obtainable in 3-6 months. Intercepted by BGR, the note specifies that supply won’t essentially be booming. “The supply chain can begin stocking up materials in 2Q14 for production,” wrote Kuo within the note. “We estimate required components can amount to 700k-1.2mn units, and assembly to 300-600k units.”

Interestingly, Kuo wrote that Amazon’s smartphone can have six cameras, three times over the two cameras modern smartphones are equipped with. The cameras, Kuo wrote, can allow for gesture controls without you having to the touch the screen.

“The key feature of the smartphone, we believe, will be the six cameras,” wrote Kuo. “Aside from the most camera, that is employed to require footage, and also the sub camera, used for video conferencing (these are each found in all smartphones), we predict the opposite four cameras are going to be used for gesture management, permitting users to control the smartphone while not biting the touch panel.”

Given Amazon’s insistence of desirous to integrate its product with its services, very similar to however it will with the Kindle pill line, Kuo predicts that Amazon can do a similar with its smartphone so as to differentiate itself from different phone brands.

Specs-wise, the telephone set is expected to possess a Qualcomm snapdragon 801 processor that powers its 4.7-inch show. The display, Kuo wrote, will have a pixel density of between 300-320 ppi, with the handset itself settled in a plastic housing. The rear-facing camera are going to be a Sony 13-megapixel variant, whereas secondary cameras are going to be provided by Primax. Finally, the battery is rated at between a pair of,000 and 2,400mAh.

Kuo’s prediction of many cameras coincides with an earlier report that the phone can have those cameras to trace head and eye movements, with the program responding to the movements.

While Kuo didn’t predict whether or not Amazon’s smartphone would be a hit, he did open the likelihood that the telephone set has that potential. “While Amazon’s smartphone is at the experimental stage, we predict its hardware options and business model could have the potential to garner a positive market reaction.
