According to the chart, the company looks set to launch the new Kindle Paperwhite in the next few days.
Two new devices appear on the chart, the $ 117 Kindle Paperwhite and the $ 164 Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition.
Both have larger 6.8-inch e-ink screens compared to the current 6-inch Paperwhite, but the more expensive model has newer wireless charging and more adjustable lighting based on the brightness of the environment.
The Kindle Paperwhite 5 e-reader has 8GB of storage and the Kindle Paperwhite Signature version has 32GB.
The density of 300 pixels per inch has not changed, however the number of LEDs for the device’s front light has increased from 5 to 17 with the current Paperwhite, and the color temperature also needs to be adjusted like the current Kindle Oasis.
The screens on both devices have an IPX8 waterproof rating similar to the current Paperwhite.
Wireless network connection is included but no mention of cellular models.
While the new Kindle Paperwhite gets some features from the Oasis, there are still a few remaining features to Amazon’s premium e-reader.
According to the comparison table, it includes its ergonomic design, automatic rotating side orientation and physics page flip buttons.
There is no indication as to what type of USB connection the new Kindles will use, so it is not clear whether Amazon will finally upgrade to USB-C after using Micro USB, even the premium Kindle Oasis will continue to use the old USB connection.
News of both models follows the arrival of the new Kindle interface, which has been released as a basic update for every Kindle device made since 2015.
The new design adds a navigation bar that facilitates navigation between the device’s home screen, library and book in progress, and will be pre-loaded on newer Kindle devices once this new interface is released
It is not known when Amazon will officially announce the new e-readers, usually the hardware event at the end of September.
