Amazon will launch a set of new Kindle Fire tablets in 2013
BGR has revealed more details about the next-gen Amazon Kindle Fire tablets for 2013. Currently, the Kindle Fire is the second most wanted brand after iPad. However, speaking about the real sales the picture is different. According to a recent study, Samsung leads the tablet market while Apple occupies the second place. Even if Samsung leads the market, the Korean company released some not so impressive products in 2013, so it could be a chance for Amazon to establish its position.
Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos explained that the company will try to release a brand new line-up of devices before year’s end. Sources close to BGR revealed that these new devices will be launched before the shopping season at the end of the year. Now, let’s have a quick view over the information available.
The first product will be an entry-level compact 7-inch tablet, a replacement of the current 7-inch Kindle Fire. Amazon will keep the same display size, but it will improve its resolution. The new slate will come with a 1280 x 800p resolution.
The next new model will be an updated version of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablet. Its panel will be upgraded to 1290 x 1200 pixel resolution, while the display will keep its 7-inches in size.
The third product expected in 2013 will be an upgraded 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD tablet. While the current model has a 1920 x 1200 p resolution, the new version will have a 2560 x 1600p resolution. That means the high-end model will pack more pixels than the current 9.7-inches Retina display by Apple.
BGR doesn’t reveal the exact price levels of these new tablets, but Amazon will probably keep the same price points as the current models.
