Amazon Kindle Oasis With Waterproof Capabilities Announced: Details

Amazon has announced a new variant of the popular e-reader range called Kindle. Called the Amazon Kindle Oasis, the new reader is waterproof and boasts of certain advanced features. The newest model of the Kindle Oasis has a 7-inch display with a screen resolution of 300 ppi or pixels per inch. This direct sequel to the Kindle Oasis first introduced in 2016 with a 6-inch display is thus considerably bigger.

What is more interesting is the fact that this is the first Kindle Oasis device which is waterproof. This means that you can now take your e-reader to any place you feel like. The IPX8 rating indicates that the device is waterproof. Also inbuilt is Audible, Amazon’s standard feature which lets you switch between reading and listening modes more easily. It will also make your device work much better and the Audible feature works on both Bluetooth headphones as well as on speakers.

The new Amazon Kindle Oasis

As far as the design is concerned, it is identical to that of last year’s Kindle Oasis. The hand grip with physical buttons used to turn the pages better is also well-received. Depending on which hand you use, the inbuilt accelerometer can change the device’s orientation. The device’s battery is said to last six weeks on a single charge and the device lacks last year’s magnetic charging cover.

This latest Amazon eReader has Wi-Fi support and a 3G model. The default storage capacity is 4GB and can be increased to 8GB. The 3G model comes with a default storage capacity of 32GB.
