Amazon is updating the Kindle Paperwhite for the first time in nearly three years with an updated model. The company added a bigger 6.8-inch E-Ink display that’s brighter and has an adjustable color temperature, USB-C charging, a faster processor, and weeks more in battery life.
The Kindle Paperwhite has been Amazon best e-reader since it was released nearly three years ago. The company is experimenting with the formula too much. The refreshed model’s design is similar to the old one, with a flush-mounted display, built-in backlight, 300 PPI resolution for crisp text, and IPX8 waterproofing.
The colour-temperature changing technology that Amazon debuted on the 2019 Kindle Oasis has made its way down to the more affordable Paperwhite for reading at night. The most noticeable change is the bigger display, which is jumping from six inches to a 6.8-inch panel. The company is maintaining the same 300 PPI pixel density.
