More Kindle Fire specs leak out, Snapdragon 800 included


BGR has been on top of things when it comes to Amazon’s upcoming Kindle Fire line-up. Mow, BGR has even more details to spill about the new tablets. With the previous leak, we heard all about the screens and a slightly changed design. But this new leak gives us a look inside the tablets, as well.

As we already knew, the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD replacement’s screen will have a 1920 x 1200 resolution. But we now know that the processor will be a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip clocked at 2GHz. Other rumored specs include 2GB RAM, a front-facing camera, Wi-Fi and LTE options, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and options for 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models. Those are powerful improvements over the model from last year and are sure to attract plenty of buyers if the price is low enough.

The other model is the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 replacement. It will feature a 2560 x 1600 screen resolution and a 2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM, a front-facing camera, Wi-Fi and LTE options, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and the same storage options. The biggest change aside from the screen is the fact that this 8.9-inch model will have an 8MP camera situated on the back. Once again, these are incredible specs that will allow the tablet to be a big seller, especially if the price can come in right around the same as last year’s model.

Like we’ve heard before, there are design changes with this new line-up and there will still be an entry-level Kindle Fire option. That tablet is said to have a 1280 x 800 7-inch display and have storage options of 8GB, 16GB and 32GB. There’s not much else known about it at this point, although it will probably be similar to last year’s 7-inch Kindle Fire HD and come in at an extremely low price.

What are you expecting for the upcoming Kindle Fire line-up?
