Amazon has unveiled three new kindles, with bigger screens and longer battery life.
On Tuesday Amazon announced three new versions of its Kindle Paperwhite e-reader, including the Paperwhite, Paperwhite Kids Edition and Paperwhite Signature Edition. All models get a new processor, a larger 6.8-inch screen, 10 weeks of battery life, warm light support and new USB-C charging.
This is the first big update to Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite since 2018. There are several new features. So let's take a look at all 3 and see what's new.
The Kindle Paperwhite costs USD 139.99 and includes a bigger 6.8-inch. It offers up to 10 weeks of battery life on a charge, up from 6 weeks in the earlier model, and now includes USB-C charging. It takes about 2.5 hours to charge fully. The new processor means pages can turn 20% faster than before and it's gaining a warm light feature from the higher-end Kindle Oasis.
The Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition costs USD 189.99 and offers the same features as the regular model but with 32GB of storage instead of 8GB, which means there's more room for books and audiobooks. It looks the same but comes with wireless charging and auto-adjusting light that will dim or brighten depending on the level of ambient light in your room.
The Kindle Paperwhite Kids Edition also includes the same features as the regular Paperwhite but costs USD 159 and includes one year of Amazon Kids+, a kid-friendly cover and a 2-year replacement guarantee.
