Upcoming Kindle Fire HDX to sport the Snapdragon 805


I know we are only one month into the summer, but fall is right around the corner, and you know that means we will be seeing new Kindle Fire tablets. So what hardware improvements are in store?

A great place to find out about upcoming devices is benchmarks. A newer version of the Kindle Fire HDX showed up in AnTuTu’s database with a Snapdragon 805, which is a lot more powerful than the current offering that utilizes a Snapdragon 800. The model that appeared in the benchmark is the 8.9-inch version, and the rest of the specs appear to be the same as the current model….a 2560 x 1600 display, 2 GB of RAM, 8 MP rear camera, and 1 MP front-facing camera. You will also notice Android 4.4.4 in the graphic, but that will of course be forked to a new version of the Fire OS.
