Amazon announced its Kindle 2022 with a redesigned look, sharper display and USB-C charging. The latest entry-level Kindle gets much of the features found on the more expensive Paperwhite model such as a 300ppi front-lit E ink display that measures 6-inches. The new Kindle is slightly smaller than the Paperwhite model at 157.8 x 108.6 x 8.0 mm and weighs 158 grams.
Amazon is doubling the storage built-in storage from 8GB to 16GB storage while battery life is rated at up to 6 weeks with 30 minutes of reading per day and wireless connectivity switched off. Charging happens via USB-C now which is a welcome improvement over the previous entry-level Kindle. Amazon also boasts 30-75% recycled plastics and 90% recycled magnesium in the latest Kindle.
Amazon Kindle 2022 comes in Black and Denim blue colors and retails for $99.99/€99.99/£84.99 with ads and $119.99/€109.99/£94.99 without ads. You can pre-order one from Amazon today via the links below while official sales start on October 12.
