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]
