With the new Nexus 7 already in stock, and rumours that the next iPad Mini will come with a Retina Display, it may be time for Amazon to up its tablet game as well. A new set of benchmark results published on GFX Bench details an upcoming Kindle Fire HD with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, putting it on par with Google’s redesigned slate.

According to the website, the tablet is code-named Apollo, and it will have a 2560 x 1600 pixel display and a processor which runs at speeds between 300 MHz and 2150 MHz.

That would seem to confirm earlier reports that the next-generation Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablets would have Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processors, and that the 8.9 inch model would have a 2560 x 1600 pixel screen.

If the rumours hold up, we may be able to expect a new 7 inch model with the same processor and a 1920 x 1200 pixel display. Both are expected to have 2 GB of RAM and operating systems based on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Amazon will also likely offer a new entry-level Kindle Fire tablet with a 1280 x 800 pixel screen and a slower processor.

We must point out that it’s very easy to fake these things, so we’d advise you to take these specifications with a pinch of salt for now. And even if they are real, it’s possible Amazon has simply been testing prototype devices, so these details may not reflect the final model.
