Amazon tells UK to ‘stay tuned’ for Fire Phone

The Amazon Fire Phone was officially unveiled last night, with the dynamic perspective 3D phone set to land as a US exclusive at launch.

The possibility of a future UK arrival hasn’t been totally ruled out though, with the retailer-turn-manufacturer offering a Fire Phone themed glimmer of hope to us Brits.

In an official statement targeted towards the British market, Amazon suggested hopeful consumers ‘stay tuned’ for further announcements around the newly unveiled Samsung Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5S rival.

“We’re launching today in the U.S. We will have to ask you to stay tuned,” an official Amazon spokesperson stated.
Although not a direct confirmation of a potential Fire Phone UK release in the future, the lack of a definitive no leaves the door open for a potential UK launch in the future.

While the company said it could “not comment on future plans,” past Amazon hardware has followed a similar path.

The Amazon Kindle Fire tablet line launched in the US first before rolling out to wider markets months later. Similarly, the Fire TV device is currently available exclusively in the US, although a future UK arrival is widely expected.

The Fire Phone is Amazon’s first attempt to tackle the smartphone market. With a 2.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a 4.7-inch HD display, the device is something of a high-end powerhouse.

Adding a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera and new 3D UI to the mix, the Fire Phone looks set to be a good first showing from the Kindle maker.
