Amazon has launched the next generation of its popular e-reader Kindle in India. The all-new Kindle features a 6-inch display with a resolution of 300ppi, a USB Type-C port for charging and up to six weeks of battery life. The latest e-reader is equipped with 16GB of inbuilt storage. Amazon claims it is their lightest and most compact Kindle yet and is better suited to comfortable one-handed reading. It is also the last Kindle model to drop the Micro-USB port.
The company’s latest e-book reader brings improvements to storage and charging, according to the company. It features 16GB of storage, which is twice as much as the 10th generation Amazon Kindle that was launched in 2019.
