The tech world just can’t get enough of leaked device images.

Today we’ve got our closest look yet at Amazon’s upcoming smartphone, courtesy of the gadget site BGR. The render shows a device that looks like every cookie-cutter Android phone we’ve seen, crossed with a few design elements from Apple’s iPhone 5.

Last month, BGR also released purported photos of Amazon’s phone, but the device’s design was hidden by a protective case. Multiple sources tell the site that this render was created by Amazon’s graphic designers.

Amazon could have changed aspects of its phone’s design after this render was created, so don’t be surprised if the final product looks a bit different.

Amazon’s smartphone is expected to feature a 4.7-inch screen and four front-facing infra-red cameras, which will be used to create a 3D-like interface. It will also reportedly run a custom version of Android, just like the Kindle Fire tablets and the Fire TV. BGR also previously reported that the phone will sport a special data plan dubbed “Prime Data,” which may also offer subscribers some free content from Amazon’s digital stores.
