Amazon Announces a New & Faster Fire 7 Tablet With 2x The Storage

The 2019 tablet can also support microSD cards up to 512GB in size, up from the 256GB limit of the prior version, and has the hands-free Alexa capabilities of its larger siblings. It still has 1GB of RAM, the same 7-inch IPS display, and 2MP rear camera, though the front-facing camera is now 2MP, too. The Fire 7 now comes in slightly more muted colors (shown above), with 16GB of storage at $49 rather than 8GB, and it adds an always-on Alexa ability when it's not actively being used. You can also get it in a two-pack for $149.99. More general-purpose cheap tablets are handicapped by the fact that most apps run poorly on devices this affordable, but Amazon guides you to (Amazon-run) services which work moderately well. The sales will start on June 6, so it's less than a month left. Battery life has dropped from 8 hours to 7 hours because of the always-on Alexa functionality; it's longer when always-on Alexa is turned off.

The front camera now features HD resolution up from the 480p one in the previous gen.

Amazon-exclusive features-ASAP, For You, X-Ray, Second Screen, Amazon FreeTime, Family Library, Blue Shade, On Deck, Prime Video downloads, and more. The all-new Amazon Fire 7 tablets are available for pre-order for just $50 and $70, but if you don't want ads on your lock screen, you'll have to pay $65 and $85, respectively.

If you factor in the limited-time offer of a $10 voucher for apps, you are essentially getting a quality tablet for just $40! It also comes with a one-year subscription to Amazon Fire for Kids Unlimited, which provides access to child-friendly books, videos, apps, games and audiobooks.

The Fire 7 Kids Edition takes the Fire 7 and puts it into into a vibrant kid-proof standing case in Blue, Pink, or Purple.

Like many Android tablets, Amazon's Fire 7 tablet doesn't exactly offer the best entertainment experience.
