According to GFXBench, the Amazon KFGIWI tablet has an 8 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, just like the tablet Amazon currently sells for $150 and up. And like the current model, the new tablet seemst o support WiFi, Bluetooth, and front and rear cameras.
So what’s new? The processor.
While the current Fire HD 8 tablet has a MediaTek MT8135 quad-core processor with two ARM Cortex-A15 CPU cores and two ARM Cortex-A7 cores, the new model seems to have a MediaTek MT8163 chip with four ARM Cortex-A53 cores.
That means the new tablet has a chip based on 64-bit architecture with ARM Mali-T720 graphics. The older model had PowerVR Series 6 graphics and a 32-bit architecture.
It’s not clear if Amazon also plans to update its entry-level 7 inch Kindle tablet or other members of the Kindle HD lineup including the company’s 6 and 10 inch models.
