Now, an alleged leaked press render has surfaced showing the rumoured next-gen Kindle Fire HD in all its glory. The leaked image comes from the popular phone tipster @evleaks, who mentions the tablet as "Another upcoming Kindle".

The purported leaked image shows the front panel of the new Kindle Fire HD tablet. However, at this point, it's not clear whether it is the 7-inch or the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD tablet variant.
The leaked Amazon tablet's press render matches the design we have seen in previous leaks, though it does not feature a front camera. This seems to hint that the render might be of a non-HD Kindle tablet variant or a new budget tablet, as the Kindle Fire HD tablets introduced earlier this year did include a front-facing camera.
For now, Amazon has neither confirmed or denied reports of the new generation of Kindle tablets from the company.
Earlier, the Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablet was leaked courtesy BGR. The website's source claimed the leaked images were of the 7-inch variant of the next-generation Kindle Fire HD tablet. The site however noted that the bigger model, the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD tablet will have the same design as the 7-inch model. The leaked images revealed a tablet with an angular design, featuring no physical buttons in the front, and revamped power button and volume rocker controls.
The last leak also pointed to some of the expected specifications of the next-generation Amazon Kindle Fire HD. It is expected to feature a 7-inch display with 1920x1200 pixels resolution, powered by a 2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM. The tablet is likely to run on a forked version of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and is likely to come in three storage variants - 16GB/32GB/64GB. Previously, Amazon's next-generation Kindle Fire HD tablet was spotted in benchmark results.
