Amazon Fire HD 10 gets a refresh with USB-C, faster processor, longer battery life, and new Kids Edition
The processor is an octa-core 2.0GHz chip, which should provide a significant step up in performance compared to the quad-core 1.8GHz it used to have. The battery has also received a boost, with up to 12 hours of mixed usage and faster charging, too. Amazon also says the tablet offers “enhanced Wi-Fi” for better connectivity.
The tablet offers custom-tuned, Dolby Atmos audio and a 3.5mm jack for headphones. It still sports expandable storage via a microSD slot with support for up to 512GB. Of course, Amazon’s digital assistant Alexa is still available hands-free as well.
The tablet is available in four colors- black, white, blue and purple, while the Kids Edition bundle comes with a black tablet and a case in either pink, blue, or purple. The new Fire HD 10 is priced identically as the previous model. Both the tablet and the bundle are up for preorder today, with a shipping date set at October 30.
