Amazon has already announced its latest products to the market, and this time attention is being drawn to its new Fire 7 tablets. They reach the international market and are considered entry-level devices with simpler specifications and lower prices for those who do not want to invest. very. One of the templates is the default and the other is for kids.
The idea is interesting, given that few people currently actually invest a lot of money in tablets, so a product is being considered that can come in handy in different situations. The Fire 7 has proven to be very effective in accessing social networks, using it to control smart devices or even ensuring that kids have fun.

The new Fire 7 tablet has 10 hours of autonomy
One of the highlights of the new Fire 7 line is that it has finally gained a feature that has been expected for a while, which is the USB-C connector. Until then, Amazon was still one of the few companies still working with micro USB input on its devices like the speaker, Kindle, and tablet.
Now the company has finally updated and surrendered the USB-C connector, which is currently generally used in many devices. The new Fire 7 also has a different look, with a more modern design compared to the devices of previous generations.
It has a 7-inch HD screen. Its edges are not completely thin, but symmetrical, that is, they are the same thickness on both sides, above and below.
The Fire 7 comes with a front camera which is mainly used for video calls with the device. It’s 2MP and has now been repositioned to be on top of the device when used horizontally, as most video people call it in this position.
It also has a rear camera, which can be used to show an environment during a video call more than the photos themselves, since it has 2 megapixels.
The Amazon tablet also gained improvements in its internal components. For starters, it has a 2.0GHz quad-core processor which is 30% faster than its predecessor, according to the company. The device also has 2 GB of RAM and a choice of 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage.
Another great feature of the tablet is that it comes with a battery that lasts 40% longer than its predecessor. This means that the Fire 7 can withstand up to 10 hours of continuous use.
It is made of plastic, 35% of which is recycled plastic. Amazon also revealed that new versions of its tablet are up to “twice as durable as the last iPad Mini in drop tests.” The product packaging is also made from recycled materials and wood fibers from managed forests.
It has a headphone jack and a microSD card slot. It can come in black, blue or pink.
In addition, Amazon also offers a children’s version, the Fire 7 for Kids, which already has all these features, but features a protective cover that makes the device more resistant to shocks and drops. This model also comes with a 1-year subscription to Amazon Kids+ and a 2-year warranty.
“The Fire 7 is our most popular tablet — and now it’s even better. This new generation gives customers more of what they love, improved performance and longer battery life, all for just $59,” said Kevin Keith, Amazon Vice President of Devices.
