We’ve seen several reports pointing at the possibility of a completely redesigned Amazon Kindle Fire HD tablet. Now, BGR has got its hands on some exclusive photos which claim to be the alleged new Kindle Fire HD.
The leaked photos show a modified exterior for the high-end table. Amazon has given the Fire HD a complete facelift with angular edges. The previous generation of the tablet came with smooth, rounded edges. Considering that the button layout on the existing device wasn’t really user-friendly, Amazon has completely redesigned the buttons too.

The stereo speakers, which were on the back of the Kindle Fire HD have been moved to the top of the device. The rear panel of the device is now smooth showing only the Amazon logo. While there is no official word on the specifications of the device, here’s what we’ve gathered from the previous leaks: the 7-inch display of the Kindle Fire HD is likely to feature 1,920 x 1,200pixel of resolution and it is said to be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset that clocks at little over 2GHz. It also sports 2GB of RAM to make multitasking better.

The Kindle Fire HD is expected to run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. It is expected to be available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage capacities. On the storage front, it gets Wi-Fi and optional cellular data. The 8.9-inch model sports similar specifications. Some differentiators could be the 2,560 x 1,600 pixel high-definition display and an 8 megapixel rear camera.
The 7-inch Kindle Fire HD is likely to launch in the coming weeks.
