Announcement. Amazon Kindle 2022 and Kindle Kids 2022 - now with high-resolution screens - Mobile News World - Helpix
Amazon appears to have finally moved to a three-year refresh cycle for its ink readers. Reader was presented today Kindle 2022 and its kid-friendly version Kindle Kids 2022.
Kindle, just Kindle is basic, ie. the most elementary and cheapest device in the line. The previous "just Kindle", Kindle 2019, was announced in the spring of 2019. And previous is in the summer of 2016.
Compared to its ancestor, the fresh Kindle 2022 is a lot prettier.
1. Screen resolution increased from 167 dpi to 300 dpiinch The rest of the screen is the same. Diagonal 6 "(111 cm²). The resolution is not officially indicated. But, most likely, 1072x1448. The screen is touch-sensitive. There is a backlight.
By the way, pay attention. It seems that the diagonal of the screen by modern standards is quite small. The vast majority of current smartphones have it over 6.5". But here's the area ... For comparison, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra smartphone with a screen diagonal of 6.73" will have a screen area of only 109 cm², i.e. slightly smaller than the six-inch Kindle.
2. The amount of permanent memory has grown. With 8 GB in the ancestor (more precisely, in the latersubversions of the ancestor - the earliest one was generally produced with 4 GB) up to 16 GB. By the standards of such devices, this is a lot. Well, there is no support for memory cards, of course.
3. Just a holiday! Now even here we do not have the ancient Micro-USB, but the modern Type-C. And Wi-Fi has become dual-band!
What else. They say the batteries will now last for "up to six weeks of use" versus "up to four weeks" from its predecessor. (Half an hour of reading a day. Backlit and Wi-Fi turned off.)
Battery capacity Amazon, as usual, does not report. As well as does not report the brand of the chipsetand the amount of RAM. Too bad.
In the US, Kindle 2022 will cost $99.99 (₽6010) for the ad-supported version and $119.99 (₽7210) for the ad-free version.
In Europe - €99.99 (₽6090, $101) for the version with built-in ads and €109.99 (₽6700, $112) for the version without ads (I checked for Germany, but I think the prices are similar in other countries).p>
Children's reader Kindle Kids 2022 comes with a pretty case included. Plus, it comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+. And a two-year unconditional guarantee (worry-free guarantee) - for a fragile devicein playful children's hands, a truly priceless thing.
$119.99 (₽7210) at launch in the US. And €119.99 (₽7310, $122) at the start of sales in Europe.
