Transcript for Amazon Launches Groundbreaking 3-D Phone
Now to that could be -- what could be the next big thing. Amazon making a bold move into the phone business unveiling a smartphone with a brand-new feature, 3D display and ABC's Neal Karlinsky has the story.

You can see it moving as I move the phone around. There's a little astronaut jumping around and tentacles coming around the planet. Very cool, very 3D. Reporter: The other standout feature is firefly, a way to identify virtually anything by looking at it with the phone's camera or by listening to it with the microphone.

Reporter: Amazon reinvented how we shop, how we read and even makes its own TV shows now, streams movies and music and wants to use drones for home delivery someday. Which is why many believe it's not about the phone, it's about offering you one more tool in an Amazon world. For "Good morning America," Neal Karlinsky, ABC news, Seattle.
