For the first time in nearly three years, Amazon announced a new update for the Kindle Paperwhite, which features a larger 6.8-inch screen, brighter and adjustable color temperature, USB-C charging, a faster processor, and more offerings. time of use. battery life.

The current Kindle Paperwhite is the company's best e-reader since it was released three years ago. The design of the new model is similar to that of the old model, with built-in backlighting, clear text resolution of 300 pixels per inch, and IPX8 water resistance.

However, the new model appears to have improved in almost all aspects of the e-reader. After a single charge, the battery life increased from 6 weeks to about 10 weeks. Thanks to USB-C, the charging speed is faster and the device can be fully charged in about two and a half hours.

There's also a new SoC that, according to Amazon (with software improvements), offers a 20% performance increase.

The color temperature changing technology for night reading, which was first made available on the Kindle Oasis in 2019 by the company, has appeared on the Kindle Paperwhite.

However, the most obvious change is the larger screen from 6" to 6.8".

Amazon still maintains a density of 300 pixels per inch. So, despite the large screen, the text still looks clear.
