New Amazon Kindle Fire HD Tablet Revealed

It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core CPU

Amazon's Kindle Fire and Fire HD tablets will soon be refashioned with newer and better hardware.

The Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD, and Kindle Fire HD 8.9 have dual-core OMAP processors of 1.2/1.5 GHz right now.

Soon, though, they will be upgraded with the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, with up to 2.3 GHz per core, and Adreno 330 GPUs.

In addition to the CPUs, they will have 2 GB of RAM, front cameras, Wi-Fi support, cellular connectivity, and a custom version of Android 4.2.2 operating system.

The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 will even get a better display than normal (2560 x 1600 instead of 1920 x 1080 pixels on the 7-inch version).

As for storage space, it will go from 8GB to 32GB on the 7-inch, entry-level Kindle Fire, and from 16GB to 64GB on the other two (Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HD 8.9).

The official launch should take place in September. Possibly during IFA 2013 according to BGR.
