What this means is, the cameras track the position of the user’s eyes and mouth to provide a glasses free 3D experience, a definite first for any smartphone in the market.

In addition to the 3D interface display on the Fire, Amazon has equipped slew of its relevant features on the device. The phone can scan and identify more than 100 million items that includes books, music, handwritten content and notes with its ‘Firefly’ feature. A user can perform price checks with this feature, comes in handy if you’re an avid Amazon shopper.
