The Kindle Fire has always been a benchmark for a lot of tablets in the market. This is because for its price, it was one of the best tablets that money can buy. It comes with an IPS screen with a reasonably good resolution, high performance dual-core processor, large storage space and memory and a lot more things. Suffice to say that for a $200, it was certainly the best one in the market.
That however changed when Google announced its Nexus 7 tablet. This is because it had a much better specification albeit at the same price tag as the Kindle Fire. The Nexus 7 comes with a better screen, quad-core processor and a few other things. Because of this, it makes complete sense for Amazon to introduce a new successor to its Kindle Fire. One of the things that they will be giving to this successor is a better IPS screen with a resolution of 1280×800. This means that instead of having an aspect ratio of 1.71, you will be getting an aspect ratio of 1.60.
The information above was reported by AllThingsD. However, this is pretty much everything that they know about the upcoming Kindle Fire successor. We do expect things such as processor and other internal components to get a reasonable upgrade as well.
