All the new Amazon tablets run Fire OS 4 Sangria

All the new Amazon tablets run Fire OS 4 Sangria - the latest version of Amazon's Android-based platform, which was unveiled today. Fire OS 4 Sangria brings various performance enhancements, plus lots of Amazon-exclusive features - including Firefly which was first introduced on the Fire Phone.

Fire OS 4 lets each family member create their own profile, including individual home screens, email, Facebook and Twitter accounts, bookmarks, and game levels—making it easy for a family to share a tablet and give everyone a personalized experience, rather than buying multiple devices.

New Fire HDX 8.9 Tablet

The new Fire HDX 8.9 is powered by a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor (with an Adreno 420 GPU), apparently being the world’s first slate to feature this chipset. Another novelty is the use of Dolby Atmos audio, this allowing the slate to deliver clear and crisp sound while being “twice as loud as an iPad Air.” 

The tablet sports the same 8.9-inch display with 2560 x 1600 pixels that’s found on the older model. Amazon is offering the new Fire HDX 8.9 for prices starting at $379 (16 GB version).

New Fire HD 6 Tablet

The Fire HD 6 goes anywhere with its pocketable design–featuring a beautiful 6" HD display, 2x faster quad-core processor, and unsurpassed reliability in its class.

Fire HD 6 features a 2MP rear-facing camera that allows for high-resolution photos and 1080p HD video and includes a front-facing camera that is perfect for Skype video calls and taking selfies to share via Facebook or email. The Fire HD 6 costs $99 (8 GB variant)

New Fire HD 7 Tablet

The new Fire HD 7 has the same internals, but sports a larger, 7-inch display with the same 800 x 1280 pixel resolution. The HD 7 costs $139 (Storage Size: 8 GB).

Fire HD Kids Edition Tablet

The new 6-inch and 7-inch Fire HDs have Kids Editions, which can be pre-ordered for as low as $149. These come with kid-proof cases, 2-year worry-free guarantee, “best-in-class parental controls”, and access to Amazon FreeTime Unlimited for 1 year.
