Amazon admitted that it didn't get the pricing right for the Fire Phone, and is now looking to remedy the situation (and get rid of all that unsold inventory) by slashing the price of the handset to $199. That's for the unlocked model with 32GB internal storage, which also comes with one year of Amazon Prime, which in itself costs $99.
One of the notable features of the phone is Dynamic Perspective, which utilizes five cameras with 120-degree field of view and IR illumination that follow your facial movements to provide a 3D-effect for the user interface. The Fire Phone runs on Fire OS and comes with Amazon's own digital content ecosystem in lieu of the Play Store and other Google services.
In terms of hardware, you're looking at a 4.7-inch 720p display, 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2 GB RAM, 32GB internal memory, 13MP camera at the back, 2.1 MP shooter at the front, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac connectivity, LTE and a 2400 mAh battery.
