With Apple ready to launch updated iPad and iPad Mini, Amazon has also decided to revamp its current tablet line-up. The word on the street is that Amazon is set to announce a successor to the Kindle Fire HD. The online shopping giant recently slashed the prices of Kindle tablets in the US.
This led to the speculation that Kindle E-book maker could announce an updated Kindle Fire HD in the coming months.
Now according to the GFXBench scores ( via My Drivers), a new Amazon Kindle tablet has surfaced. Most likely, the tablet will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and Adreno 320 GPU. Moreover, the tablet display size hints at 8.9-inches having resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The device will have an 8-mega pixel rear facing camera and an option to choose between 16GB/32/64GB internal memory.
Amazon is yet to accept whether new tablets are on the way or not. If the tech vendor is really prepping a new tablet, then we will get to know in the coming days.
