As Sept 6 draws near, holding promise of a new Kindle Fire, the suspense surrounding the whole thing is getting feverish. A number of rumors have also surfaced claiming to reveal the specs of the upcoming Amazon tablet. And now, here are some allegedly leaked images of the new Kindle devices.
The new Kindle Fire, as per the leaked photos, is not very different from the first tablet from Amazon. In terms of design, it definitely looks better but apart from minor changes, it doesn’t seem a major upgrade. It is possible that Amazon focused its energies on the hardware profile of the tablet which, some rumors claim, will be notched up to a quad-core processor for a 10-inch Kindle Fire model.
A very significant new feature in the upcoming Kindle Touch, also displayed in the leaked images, is that of ‘Paperwhite.’ The current models of Amazon’s e-readers don’t feature a back-lit screen. So if you are in the dark, you won’t be able to read a book on them.
With ‘Paperwhite’ which is a fancy name for the back-lit display, the new Kindle Touch will let you read your e-books even in the dark. Rumors have it that this e-reader will be able to last eight weeks after a single recharge! That is naturally great news for avid e-book readers.
However, nearly all of this information comes from rumors and speculation, so we should take it all with a grain of salt. It’s only on Sept 6 that we can finally be sure of what Amazon has in store for us and what promises does the new Kindle devices pack.
