Amazon’s newest Fire HD 10 model is a refresh that adds several key upgrades. Starting with the display, the Fire HD 10 offers an HD 10.1″ 1080p display (1920 x 1200) with 2 million pixels at 224 PPI. Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.0 GHz octa-core processor with 2 GBs of RAM. The new Fire HD 10 comes with enhanced speed but still offers up to 12 hours of battery life according to Amazon. The new device has 32 GB of internal storage, but you can expand the storage by adding a microSD card, up to 512 GB. One of the biggest upgrades is the charging/power connector, which is now a USB-C connection. The Fire HD 10 still offers Alexa hands-free and picture-in-picture capability, and the new model comes in Plum, Twilight Blue, Black, and all-new White for only $149.
The new models ship on October 30th, but you can order one now and have it on release day. You can find the newest Kindle model right here on Amazon.
“We’ve made our best tablet even better with a faster processor, longer battery life, and faster charging,” said Kevin Keith, Vice President, Amazon Devices. “The all-new Fire HD 10 has everything you need for entertainment with plenty of storage for your favorite videos, games, music, and books at home or on the go—and still under $150.”
A few of the other standout features include Dolby Atmos audio, enhanced dual band Wi-Fi with 802.11ac Wi-Fi support, and the camera setup includes an HD 720p front-facing camera and a 2 MP rear-facing camera. You can also save all of the pictures you take with Amazon’s unlimited cloud storage, which is free for all pictures taken on Fire tablets. The other key features included Amazon’s ASAP, For You, X-Ray, Second Screen, Family Library, Blue Shade, and On Deck support.
If you’re a parent, the parental controls allow you to create child profiles to limit screen time, set educational goals, and manage content. FreeTime is free on every Fire tablet, or you can subscribe to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, starting at just $2.99 per month.
Amazon also stated that all customers who pre-order the device prior to October 30th will receive the popular “Minecraft” app included with the purchase of an all-new Fire HD 10. If you would like a matching case, your options are Plum, Twilight Blue, Charcoal Black, Sandstone White, and Sage. Amazon’s cases can stand in both landscape and portrait orientations and cost $39. In addition to the Fire HD 10, Amazon today introduced the all-new Fire HD 10 Kids Edition, new Kindle Kids Edition, and FreeTime on Fire TV.
