Next Gen Amazon Kindle Fire HD Image Leak
A day after Apple unveiled a new iPhone lineup that had effectively been revealed weeks earlier by anonymous people in the hardware supply chain, a new set of leaked photos purports to show Amazon’s next Kindle Fire HD, as reported by BGR.
It’s thought that Amazon may release the 7-inch version ahead of the 8.9-inch version.
The 2013 Kindle Fire HD models feature an extensive design overhaul. The rounded shape on the back of the current models has been replaced with a more angular design that gives the device a much harder look. Also as we described, the buttons have been completely redesigned since the current layout was a big pain point for many users. The stereo speakers on the back of the Kindle Fire HD have now been moved to the top of the device, as seen in several of our exclusive photos. The band across the bottom on the back of the current HD tablets has been removed, leaving a smooth back surface interrupted only by Amazon’s logo.
It’s believed that the 7-inch tablet will have a 1920×1200 display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at more than 2GHz, 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi, optional cellular data, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. The 8.9-inch version will have a 2560×1600 display and 8MP camera.
