It's a case, as alluded to in the text of the article. Look how recessed the headphone jack is; obviously a case.
Indeed, I was wrong. Thing is, triangle screws aren’t difficult to get through. Take the case off and show us!

Who shows a phone with a case on it. Even a cheap case doesn't have a crevice for a seam.
Don't worry, the phone to be sold by the evil empire (google) will feature mind-reading. Won't that be "special"!
Isn't every phone not an iPhone an iPhone competitor?
Its the boobies.
Ok amazon, pony up your R&D budget
All those camera and 3D features will be used to better enhance sexting pictures...
no the mind reading phone is being produced by MS. didn't you see their announcement about being able to predict what you want to do before you know yourself.
Everything about the device has told us they are. Why on Earth would they need six cameras if not to pretend it’s about 3D in an excuse to record users?
There's no real proof this is the real phone anyway, so I have to reserve judgment somewhat... however, it would make more sense as a method for Amazon to derive marketing information than as some kind of a bizarre 3-D interface. Just my 4 cents (increased due to the effects of inflation).
The HTC Evo 3D used an autostereoscopic display and 3D camera and certailny wasn't a smartphone in high demand. Like the 3DS I think the 3D gimmick wears off and then people just use the device without 3D to save on battery life.

Why is AI referring to this as an iPhone competitor? Seems to me this phone will compete with other low cost options like some of the Nokia Lumia's and Moto X/G.
It's in a case to cover it from prying eyes and photographers.
6 cameras, 4 for the 3D, 1 front facing standard camera and 1 rear facing standard camera.
It sounds a little out there, but that's what prototypes are for. Interested to see what it adds to the market.
I'll hold off on 'its great' or 'it totally sucks' based on whom it is made by, and wait until I see what it actually does. Being offered by Amazon does give it a 'slight negative' right out of the crate, but if it does something unique (and good) it could easily overcome that.
I think Amazon is great when I go to them because I want product fast, I don't like them so much when they come to me.
If it has the effect of kneecapping Samsung, it'll be worth it.
