Report: Amazon may be working on a new, ‘much more intuitive’ phone

The device ran a heavily modified version of Android, and though it packed some interesting face-tracking technology, the interface itself was pretty godawful. Its mediocre specs were paired with an astronomical price tag, and just a bit over <a href="https://www.engadget.com/2015/09/09/amazon-stops-fire-phone-sales/">one year later</a>, the Fire Phone finally burnt out. Now, according to a recent report by <a href="https://www.thewrap.com/jen-salke-amazon-phone-prototype-prime-video-user-interface/">TheWrap</a>, Amazon's mobile ambitions might be preparing to pull a phoenix and rise...

At the time, collective opinions were firmly against the concept, but 2016 was two years ago. Not two months later, Google would be cracking jokes at Apple during its Pixel launch event about the phone's "satisfyingly not new" headphone jack, blissfully ignorant of its coming hypocrisy.<div class="clear"></div> <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/07/29/weekend-poll-buy-smartphone-without-headphone-jack/" class="read-more">Read More</a></p><p><a href='https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/07/29/weekend-poll-buy-smartphone-without-headphone-jack/'>Weekend poll: Would you buy a smartphone without a headphone...
