Update: The event is over now and the Amazon Fire Phone is official. Check out our full scoop.

In just a few short hours, Amazon will hrecent an event during which it's widely believed to be presenting its first smartphone. The image below is apparently a accurate to life rendering of it.

This device has basically been rumored ever since the first Kindle Fire tablet became official. After all, it does seem pretty logical for Amazon to want to go into smartphones now that it has a pretty strong foothrecent in the tablet space.

The Amazon phone will reportedly come with a unique 3D-like interface, that won't require glasses for viewing. This will be enabled by four cameras mounted on the front corners of the handset. They will be used to track your eyes and continuously adapt the image you see based on your position in relation to the screen.

And that may be exactly what the following teaser video from Amazon is about.

This system will create certain tilt gestures possible, and those may be used to control some aspects of Amazon's built-in apps.

The Operating System (OS) will be similar to what's inside Amazon's Kindle Fire tablets, unsurprisingly, so expect a forked version of Android in this case too.

Obviously, Amazon's services are going to be front and center. And given what it's done with its tablets, the retailer's first smartphone may be srecent at an extremely low price - at cost almost. That's becautilize Amazon wants to create money by selling you stuff after you buy one of its devices.

As for specs, a 4.7-inch 720p touchclassy screen could be in there, while a elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset with a quad-core Central Processing Units (CPU) along with 2GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) should handle the heavy lifting.

According to the latest leak on the matter, the Amazon phone will be an AT&T exclusive. It's unclear whether that will assist the recent device or harm it, especially nowadays when people are used to having the best smartphones available on all carriers. Then again, this may be a limited time exclusivity deal.

Stick around and we'll bring you all the news regarding Amazon's first smartphone as it happens.

The Amazon event is set to start in 6.30pm UK time.
