Amazon has introduced the 11th-generation version of the Fire 10 HD tablet. This year’s edition adds wireless charging for the “Plus” model, a new front camera location (now positioned for landscape video chats instead of portrait), and slimmer side bezels, leading to a more symmetrical design.
Detailed specs are on Amazon’s developer site. The tablet features a 2 GHz MediaTek MT8183 SoC, the same chip used in the 10th- and 9th-gen Fire tablets going back to 2019. This is an eight-core, 12 nm chip with four Cortex A73 cores and four A53 cores. The GPU is an ARM Mali-G72 MP3. Other specs include a 10.1-inch, 1920×1200 LCD; 3GB of RAM; 32GB or 64GB of storage; a USB-C port; Wi-Fi up to 802.11ac; a headphone jack; a microSD slot; and stereo speakers. Amazon says the battery is good for “12 hours,” which previously has indicated a 6300 mAh battery.
True to its form as an online retail giant, Amazon’s Fire 10 HD is available in a bunch of different versions and bundles:
