About the Kindle HDX
Breakthrough HDX Display
Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ has the highest resolution (2560×1600) and the best pixel density (339 ppi) of any Kindle Fire tablet, providing an incredible multimedia experience. The HDX display features over 4 million pixels for vivid, lifelike images that go beyond standard HD.
Both the 7″ and 8.9″ Kindle Fire HDX displays feature perfect color (100% sRGB), displaying images and videos as the photographer or videographer intended.
Better Viewing Indoors and Out
The HDX display features dynamic image contrast, a unique feature that automatically optimizes the color of each pixel based on the amount of light in your surroundings. This makes images and videos even easier to see in any lighting conditions, including outdoors.
At 13.2 ounces (13.5 ounces for 4G version), the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ is 34% lighter than the previous generation. To achieve this revolutionary light weight, Amazon integrated the capacitive touch layer directly into the glass display, and created a unique magnesium unibody from a single piece of machined magnesium and a blend of glass and nylon—the same material used in high-performance race cars. The result is a light, durable, portable tablet.
Smaller Bezel, Cleaner Lines
Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ is engineered for increased usability, and features an all-new design with a smaller bezel, cleaner lines, and optimized button and charger port placements. Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ is designed to disappear in your hands, so you can get lost in your viewing experience.
Powerful Quad-Core Processor
Kindle Fire HDX tablets are the first tablets to be powered by the 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, making them the first to clock in at over 2 GHz. It provides 3x more processing power than the previous-generation Kindle Fire HD and, combined with 2GB of RAM, provides faster app launch times, quicker website load times, smoother multi-tasking, and better overall performance.
The new Adreno 330 graphics processor on Kindle Fire HDX delivers high frame rates and console quality graphics—4x the performance of the previous generation Kindle Fire HD.
Custom Dolby Audio
Kindle Fire HDX uses the power of Dolby Digital Plus to create a world class audio experience. Dolby Digital Plus includes technology that adjusts volume, creates virtual surround sound, and delivers easier-to-understand dialogue in movies and TV shows. Kindle Fire HDX is designed to automatically optimize the audio profile based on what you’re doing (with or without headphones), such as watching a movie, listening to music, or talking on Skype.
Uncompromised Battery Life
With advanced power management technology, Kindle Fire HDX delivers an uncompromised 12 hours of reading, surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music. When you’re just reading, Kindle Fire HDX automatically powers down unused system components, extending battery life to 18 hours.
Kindle Fire HDX 8.9″ features an 8MP rear-facing camera that allows for high-resolution photos and 1080p HD video. The rear camera includes an LED flash, Electronic Image Stabilization to remove hand jitters, a wide-aperture lens, and support for panorama and High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging. Our updated camera app also includes photo editing features and a new camera mode with filmstrip.
The Origami cover for the 8.9″ Fire HDX features a custom slide feature that quickly exposes the rear-facing camera and automatically launches the camera application so you don’t miss a great photo opportunity. Learn more
