Amazon’s new Kindle Paperwhite brings longer battery life, bigger screen and USB-C

Amazon has unveiled two new Kindle devices with the new Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition.

“Customers love Kindle Paperwhite, and we’ve worked hard to add even more premium experiences to the next generation,” said Kevin Keith, vice president of Amazon Devices and Services. “The new Kindle Paperwhite comes with a warm light and larger display for even more comfort, 20% faster page turns, and up to 10 weeks of battery life—all in a compact, waterproof design that makes it easy to enjoy a book anywhere, day or night.  Now more than ever, it’s delightful to get lost in millions of books wherever you go.”

Both models now feature a 6.8-inch display with 300 ppi and glare-free for a better reading experience. The Signature Edition adds a auto-adjusting light sensor to the display.

Amazon says battery life should be around 10 weeks and when you do need to charge, the new Kindles have a USB-C.

Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition steps is up by adding wireless charging (via any compatible Qi wireless charger or the Amazon branded one).

The new Kindle Paperwhite models have IPX8 water resistance rating, so it should be fine if it’s accidentally dropped in the tub, pool or ocean.
