Amazon will be moving away from 8GB of storage on the low end and start out with 16GB with a 32GB option.

Amazon has been offering its Fire Tablets for quite some time. Over time, they were getting nicer while remaining inexpensive price. However, specifications remained largely unchanged as well. On June 6th, Amazon will be releasing a new Fire 7 Tablet with increased specifications while keeping the same affordable price.

The older versions of the Fire 7 Tablet came with 8GB of storage which would barely get you anything in this day and age. At most, you would be able to store a few games, books, movies and whatever else you need from Amazon’s services. Now, the company will be moving away from 8GB on the low end and start out with 16GB with a 32GB option. If you are wanting to expand the storage, there is that option with a microSD slot which supports cards up to 512GB. There’s still only 1GB of RAM and as far as the processor side, it’s still a quad-core 1.3GHZ SoC, but Amazon said it’ll be faster than the previous model.

As for the price, the 16GB model will start out at US$49.99, while the 32GB will be priced at $69.99. Do keep in mind that these prices are for the new Fire 7 Tablet with the “special offers” meaning offers will show up on the devices lock screen. Without “special offers” the price will be $64.99 and $84.99 respectively.

If you’re wanting to choose a color other than black, you will be able to choose from plum, sage, and twilight blue.
