Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet

Amazon renews its catalog of Fire tablets with three new devices. The first one is the Fire HD 8. It is the successor to the current Fire HD 8 (2018). It arrives with a faster processor and twice as much storage.

The second is the new Fire HD 8 Plus, which mounts more RAM and adds wireless load. Finally, the third is the Fire HD 8 Kids Edition, which for practical purposes is the same as the Fire HD 8, but with a more durable casing and colorful.

At the moment, the three devices have been launched in the United States. Let’s see what we have got here:

Amazon Fire HD 8

The Amazon Fire HD 8 draws on the design of the previous model. It maintains the eight-inch screen with HD resolution (1,280 x 720 pixels). The novelties are inside since Amazon has implemented double the internal storage. It has 32 and 64 GB storage choice instead of 16 and 32 GB. In both cases, the device is expandable through microSD cards. The RAM remains at 2 GB. It is a half gigabyte more than the 2018 model.

The company has also not revealed the processor inside, but its speed: 2 GHz, 30% more than the previous model. Another novelty that comes to this tablet is the “Games mode” that, according to Amazon, offers an “optimized and distraction-free experience” for gaming sessions.

The operating system is still Android. So it is compatible with Netflix, Facebook, Instagram and other applications of the day, with the difference that the default voice assistant is Alexa. As for the cameras, the device mounts two sensors, one behind and one in front, both two-megapixel resolution with HD video recording.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition

The Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition is the same as the Fire HD 8. Still, it includes a blue, pink and purple “childproof” protective case, one year from Amazon FreeTime Unlimited (access to books, videos, games, audiobooks and educational content) and a two-year warranty. The company says that if it breaks, they replace it at no cost.

Besides, the new kids’ tablet allows parents to set usage times, educational goals, and different parental controls. Otherwise, just like the Amazon Fire HD 8: eight-inch HD screen, 32 GB of internal storage, 12 hours of battery life and USB type C. Its price is $139.99 regardless of color.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Plus

The Fire HD 8 Plus model is practically the same as the standard Amazon Fire HD 8, but it has a little more power. The screen is eight inches with HD resolution (1,280 x 720 pixels), the processor also moves at 2 GHz, and the internal storage is 32 or 64 GB expandable with MicroSD. Now there is a slight improvement in RAM, which is 3GB instead of 2GB for the non-Plus model. Also, the Fire HD 8 Plus has Qi wireless charging.

Versions and price of the Amazon Fire HD 8 Series

The price of the new Amazon tablets depends on two parameters: internal storage and whether or not we want it with special offers. At the moment they are only available in the United States:
