launched its original Kindle Fire HD tablets last year and created a lot of buzz with the new interface of the tablet. Now it seems that the company is all set to launch a revamped version of its Kindle Fire HD tablet series with upgraded specifications.
BGR claims that the online retail giant will launch the next generation Kindle Fire HD tablets sporting Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB RAM.
The report suggests that the next generation 7-inch Kindle Fire HD tablet will feature a display with a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels. The tablet will be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor that would include four Krait 400 CPUs and Adreno 330 graphics.
While the larger Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch variant is expected to have same innards as the 7-inch Kindle Fire tablet HD but will have a higher resolution display of 2560x1600 pixels.
BGR further claims that the 7-inch tablet will not include a rear camera, while the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD variant will feature an 8-megapixel rear camera. It is also likely that the new Kindle Fire HD tablets will be lighter than the original versions they will replace. The next generation Kindle Fire HD tablets will reportedly have three storage options - 8GB, 16GB and 32GB.
An earlier report had indicated that the new models of the Kindle Fire HD tablet will be lighter and feature a more angular design with a flat slope that meets the edges, instead of the current design that has a curved slope. The corners of the tablets would not be rounded as well.
The upgraded Kindle Fire HD will compete against the recently launched new Nexus 7 tablet with Android 4.3 and the revamped iPad Mini tablet that is expected to be unveiled later this year, as well as host of offerings from Samsung.
