Amazon Announces a New & Faster Fire 7 Tablet With 2x The Storage

Amazon Fire TV devices are up to $50 off for Prime members

During our real-world testing, the 7th Gen model lasted 6 hours and 53 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery Test (Wi-Fi surfing at 150 nits).

"For under £50, we're making it even better for customers with a faster processor and 2x the base storage, so customers can enjoy even more of their favourite entertainment at home and on- the-go".

Also launching today is an all-new Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition, priced at £99.99.

Faster processor-With a quad-core 1.3 GHz processor, quickly and easily switch between apps, stream movies, and browse the web. The Fire 7 now comes in slightly more muted colors (shown above), with 16GB of storage at $49 rather than 8GB, and it adds an always-on Alexa ability when it's not actively being used.

"Crisp and vivid display-Amazon's lightest tablet features a high quality 7" IPS display for accurate color reproduction that looks great at all angles.

Amazon is also boasting that its new tablet is twice as durable as Apple's new iPad mini and stands up against drops, tumbles, spills, and everyday wear and tear. There's a 7-inch screen, a 2MP rear camera, and a number of Amazon-exclusive features, such as X-Ray and Family Library. Probably the most important (and most advertised) new feature is the hands-free Alexa integration. Truth be told, this one is more expensive than the all-new Fire 7 tablet, as Amazon offers its new kids-oriented slate for $100. Amazon offers a two-year worry-free guarantee promising to replace the tablet if it gets damaged in any way.

The new Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition.

Both the Amazon Fire 7 and and Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition are available to pre-order today, and will start shipping on 6th June. The kids slate is also bundled with one-year FreeTime Unlimited with access to over 20,000 apps, games, videos and educational content. It too will be released on the sixth day of next month.
