With Amazon enjoying success with their lineup of Kindle Fire Android tablets, it is not surprising that word on the street has it that Amazon is looking to launch a Kindle Fire successor, the third-generation to be specific after the Kindle Fire HD. With the Kindle Fire HD receiving a price cut, it was speculated that a successor could be on its way and thanks to a benchmark sighting, it looks like Kindle Fire fans could be getting their wish. According to the GFXBench scores, a certain Amazon KFAPWA device was sighted with an Adreno 330 GPU which would suggest a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC.

The benchmark also reveals a 2560×1600 display resolution  which is definitely a step up from its predecessor, which we guess is kind of to be expected. The benchmarks also corroborate an earlier rumor we heard in July that suggested the 8.9” Kindle Fire HD would come with those features, along with an 8MP rear-facing camera, and 16/32/64GB storage options. Of course it is entirely possible that benchmark scores can be faked, so don’t get your hopes up just yet, but hopefully it won’t be too long before Amazon makes their announcement. So, who’s excited for the new Kindle Fire HD tablet?
