Could This Possibly Be The New Kindle Fire?

The Verge claims to have an image of Amazon’s new Kindle Fire, which is expected to be announced next week. It’s possible considering we’re almost certain that a new Kindle Fire is on the way, and especially since the current Kindle Fire is sold out at Amazon.

But gosh, that bezel looks weird (read: very possibly Photoshopped), and the camera placement is just bizarre for a 4:3(ish) tablet. Other tablets have similar placement, but they’re generally 16:9 and meant to be held in landscape. Plus, it looks to be a different aspect ratio to the current Kindle Fire.

The new aspect ratio could be due to the fact there’s a 10-inch Kindle Fire rumoured to be coming. But the keyboard is also drastically different to the one on the current Kindle Fire.

Everything, including the image quality, points to a fake. We probably wouldn’t believe the image if we saw it randomly, but The Verge has a very good track record and seems to be certain this is the real deal. We’ll let you know of any further developments. [The Verge]
