Amazon has yet again refreshed its affordable Fire tablet series and this year the updates are more visible. The top end HD 10 Plus and Fire HD 10 now come with a brighter 10.1-inch FHD+ displays with slimmer bezels as well as an optional Bluetooth keyboard cover.

The regular Fire HD 10 gets 3GB RAM while the Plus packs 4GB. Storage ranges between 32GB and 64GB with microSD expansion available on both. Amazon isn’t revealing the exact chipset on the new models but claims it’s an eight-core CPU clocked at 2.0 GHz which is the same explanation we got for the previous gen tablets. The Plus model also brings wireless charging and a soft touch finish on the back.

Pointy point.

Last gen had impressive battery performance, it's price/performance ratio was insane among FHD tablets. Wish they had QHD option.
