Next-Gen Kindle Fire Series Sport Higher Screen Resolution

Much Higher

Amazon might launch its next-generation Kindle Fire series by the end of the year, with the online retail giant hoping to have it ready by the holiday shopping season. The company is planning on upgrading all three distinct classes of tablets for late-2013, including one that features higher resolution than anything anyone has among their ranks, at the moment.

To begin with, the 7-inch Kindle Fire gets a screen resolution boost from 1024 x 600 to 1280 x 720, which is on-par with what current Kindle Fire HD features. Moving on, the Kindle Fire HD itself will score a resolution boost from 1280 x 720 (HD) to 1920 x 1080 (full-HD). Lastly, the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD will see a similarly massive resolution jump from 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) to 2560 x 1440 (WQHD), giving it the highest pixel density for a tablet of its size. In addition to screen resolution jumps, one could expect faster hardware to keep up with them, and an updated user-interface running atop a heavily modified Android.
