Amazon has yet to reveal its long-rumored smartphone, but the device may already have an exclusive carrier.
According to the Wall Street Journal, which cites “people familiar with the plans,” AT&T will exclusively carry Amazon’s smartphone, which the company is expected to announce Wednesday.
The smartphone will reportedly feature a 3-D interface made possible through four built-in cameras.
Amazon is dipping into a highly competitive smartphone market, currently dominated by hardware giants Apple and Samsung. Research firm IDC says during the first quarter of this year, the two companies commanded a combined 45% market share among global smartphone shipments by manufacturer.
The online retailer recently launched Prime Music, a streaming music service that will be included in subscriptions to Amazon Prime.
