Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets have been a huge success for the company, but they might be an even bigger hit if what a report is claiming turns out to be true as the company is expected to release new versions of its tablets with not only a bump up in its display, but a new design as well.
The report comes from BGR and they say the 7-inch Kindle Fire’s display will receive a bump up from a 1024 x 600 display to a 1280 x 800 display, which is the same resolution as the current Kindle Fire HD. The Kindle Fire HD will also receive a bump up in its display as the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD will get bumped up to a 1920 x 1200 display. The last of Amazon’s devices to receive a bump in its display is the top-of-the-line Kindle Fire HD 8.0, which will feature a 2560 x 1600 display.
A bump in resolution won’t be the only change Amazon rolls out for its Kindle Fire tablets as the report also claims the design of the devices will be slightly tweaked to be lighter and have some of its buttons moved around a bit. For example, the Kindle Fire’s power and volume buttons will no longer be located on the side, but instead the sloping area on the case’s back.
