Amazon has finally updated their popular Fire 7 and Fire 7 Kids tablets, and wow what an amazing upgrade this is! Both tablets have a full suite of new hardware upgrades, improved battery life, smoother performance and, best of all, both now have USB-C ports.
We are not sure why It took Amazon so many years to ditch micro-USB and bring USB-C to its 7-inch tablet. After all, the Fire HD 8 tablet has had this type of connector for two years. Regardless, we’re excited about this feature as these tablets will likely be able to charge much faster than before (although Amazon has yet to confirm that).
Additionally, the Fire 7 now rocks a quad-core processor that’s 30% faster than its predecessor, and it has twice the RAM. That should make it easier to run more intensive apps and even switch between multiple apps without any noticeable lag. The tablet has an expected battery life of 10 hours, even if you spend that time watching Netflix or messing around with other apps on its 7-inch, 1024 x 600p display. Of course you also have access to Alexa on the tablets.
Want to take photos or video calls with the Fire 7? No problem. It now has 2-megapixel cameras on the front and back of the device and can support 720p HD video. This certainly isn’t the best camera hardware we’ve seen on a tablet, but hey, it’s better than nothing.
The kids’ version of the tablet comes with a colorful, kid-resistant case, a one-year subscription to Amazon Kids+, and a two-year device warranty. Amazon Kids+ can help keep your kids entertained for days with its wide range of family-friendly educational content from PBS Kids, National Geographic, Disney+, Sesame Street Workshop and more.
The Fire 7 tablets are available for pre-order now on Amazon’s website and are expected to be officially released on June 29th. You can also choose from a few configurations with options for 16 or 32GB of storage. The standard Fire 7 is available in three colors – black, denim and rose. You can opt for the $59.99 lockscreen ads version or skip the annoying ads altogether with the $74.99 ad-free version. The Fire 7 Kids Tablet comes in blue, purple, or red with the same storage options and starts at $110.
