We could define them i Kindle Paperwhite best ever. Yes, because in addition to everything the world’s most famous e-reader already offered, there’s now a bigger screen – 6.8 inches –, higher performance and a battery that, as Amazon promises, will last up to 10 weeks. And, in the version Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition, there is also wireless charging and the light sensor. Everything for a more comfortable and rewarding using and reading experience.

The screen

So let’s start with the main character, the di6.8 inch screen. The new Kindle Paperwhite combines one 6.8-inch screen with a thinner brim (1.2 cm) which gives it an elegant design. The screen of 300 ppi and anti-glare guarantees an excellent definition, and thus legibility, of the texts and, thanks to the paper effect, ensures a perfect reading experience, even in direct sunlight.

When set to maximum, it offers 10% more brightness to ease the eyes, adjustable light tone and white-on-black mode for reading at any time, day or night. Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition also features a light sensor with automatic adjustment which automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen to the prevailing lighting conditions.

Autonomy and more

The battery life of the new Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition reaches up to 10 weeks on a single charge† Fast USB-C charging takes only 2.5 hours to fully charge the player when using a 9W or more powerful adapter. In addition, Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition is the first Kindle to feature the wireless charging and compatible with any Qi wireless charger (sold separately).

The new Kindle Paperwhite devices will then have a IPx8 protection level and they’re tested for accidental submersion in water, so you can take them anywhere, like the sea, pool or bathtub. In addition, the 8 GB of memory on the new Kindle Paperwhite and 32 GB on the Signature Edition provide space for thousands of titles.


Kindle Paperwhite presents acompletely redesigned interface and adds new features† The revamped navigation menu makes it easy to switch from the home screen to the library or return to the book you’re reading, while the revisited library includes new filters and ratings, a new ‘Collections’ interface and an interactive scroll bar.

The new Simplified installation on Kindle app for iOS and Android allows you to pair the device with the phone in just a few steps. Settings can also be accessed with a simple touch from anywhere on the screen, making it quick and easy to adjust brightness, activate airplane mode or dark mode. These new features will be rolled out later this year.
