While no official details have been released so far, we’re pretty sure the new tablet will have a microSD card slot, 802.11n WIFi, and Bluetooth 4.0.
Now we may have a first look at some additional specs, thanks to a listing at the GFXBench website.
If the GFXBench data is accurate (and it might not be), Amazon’s cheapest tablet could have a 6 or 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and a MediaTek MT8127 quad-core ARM cortex-A7 processor with Mali-450 graphics. It’s said to have a 2MP rear camera and 0.3MP front camera.
By comparison, the $99 Fire HD 6 has a 1280 x 800 pixel display, a MediaTek MT8135 processor with two Cortex-A15 and two Cortex-A7 CPU cores and PowerVR G6200 graphics. It also has 2MP rear and 0.3MP front camera, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB to 16GB of storage (but no microSD card slot).
It’a also worth noting that GFXBench says the new tablet runs Android 5.1 Lollipop software, which means it will probably ship with Amazon’s Fire OS 5.
