Amazon has recently launched a new range of tablets under its Fire Tablet lineup. The company usually launches 2 tablets which include a normal one and another is a kids-oriented option. But this time they’ve launched a range of three new Fire tablets.
It is an 8-inch tablet with a custom Android-based Fire operating system. The company says that this time the new 2.0GHz quad-core processor is quite faster than the previous one. The tablet comes with a 2GB RAM.
The tablet doesn’t have an extraordinary spec, but its best for streaming and casual web browsing purpose. This time, they have replaced the MicroUSB with a USB-C connector.
The screen display is 1280 x 800 pixels, which are not that great but are perfectly watchable. And even the battery life has improved as it has gone up from 10 to 12 hours.
The internal storage options available this time are 32GB instead of 16GB and 64GB instead of 32GB which supports microSD card expansion. The device comes with a 9W fast charger and six months of Kindle Unlimited. But the British customers only get three months of Kindle Unlimited.
