Amazon reportedly working on three new Kindle Fire tablets


Amazon is working on three new-generation Kindle Fire tablets, which will replace the ones already available in the market in an attempt to attract more potential buyers through a refurbished hardware, cited anonymous BGR sources who are familiar with the plans of the company.

Last year, the team of Jeff Bezos cut the price of the Kindle Fire and introduced the original Kindle Fire HD with 7-inch and 8.9-inch display. Following the same trend, the company is readying new Kindle Fire tablets with upgraded specs rather than completely new products, with more power and better quality display.

The new Kindle Fire will be equipped with a same 7-inch display, but this time with a slightly higher resolution, raised from 1024×600 pixels to 1280×800 pixels. Perhaps, the design will not change much, but it will be more powerful than the current version at a low cost again.

The screen of the Kindle Fire HD with 7-inch will get an upgrade from 1280×800 pixels to 1920×1200 pixel. The current version of the Kindle Fire HD with 8.9-inch will now arrive at a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels. Noticeably, in the latter case, the tablet would offer an even better resolution than the iPad’s Retina Display. The new generation Kindle Fire HD tablets will have a new lighter body with a sloping back and curved edges. The volume buttons will be placed on the side of the devices.


It seems that Amazon will introduce the three new tablet before the end of 2013 in stores, and continue to refresh their devices once in a year. The primary goal is to attract potential consumers in the holiday season, who could choose Amazon products compared to vast Android panorama.

Amazon is expected to announce its new Kindle Fire in September, but is yet to be confirmed.
