Amazon upgrades its best selling Fire 7 tablet (but not its price)

On May 16, Amazon announced an upgrade to its Fire 7 tablet. According to the announcement, Amazon’s all-new Fire 7 tablet gets a faster processor and twice the storage for the same $49.99 price tag. Amazon upgraded the Fire 7 with a quad-core 1.3 GHz processor. Customers get to choose between 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage, up to 512 GB of expandable microSD card storage, and unlimited cloud storage for your Amazon digital content purchases.

The all-new Fire 7 is Alexa-enabled and supports Alexa hands-free when connected to Wi-Fi. For battery life, it sports up to 7 hours of reading, browsing, watching, and listening. The Fire 7 includes 1 GB of RAM and the 7″ touchscreen display has a screen resolution of 1024×600 (171ppi). The device comes with both front and rear-facing 2 MP cameras for HD 720p video chat and recording as well as dual-band Wi-Fi support. Use your existing wired headphones with a 3.5mm stereo jack, and connect and charge the Fire 7 with the included USB 2.0 (micro-B connector) cable and power adapter.

Customers who pre-order the all-new 9th Generation Fire 7 tablet have four colors to choose from — Black, Sage, Plum, and Twilight Blue. Order an Amazon case to go with it which stands in both landscape and portrait orientations. Deliveries begin on June 6, 2019.

For twice the price of the Fire 7, it includes a case, one year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited (access to over 20,000 apps, games, books, videos, audiobooks, and educational content from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Disney, and more), and a 2-year worry-free guarantee that if your child breaks it, Amazon will replace it for free.
