This Wednesday (23), the amazon launched the Kindle 11th generation base in Brazil. The novelty maintains the screen in size of 6 inches, but brings twice the resolution and 16 GB of storage – twice as much compared to the previous generation.
Amazon also points out that the new Kindle is the lightest model in the entire line. It’s only 158 g. Externally, not much has changed. In this regard, the highlight goes to the unprecedented version in blue. The black color option has been maintained.
But the big differential of the new version is the resolution. In the previous generation, it is 167 ppi. Now it’s 300 ppi. This makes the 11th generation Kindle have the same resolution as the Kindle Parperwhite It’s from Kindle Oasis🇧🇷
However, the backlight of the screen has not changed. The novelty still has only four LEDs for this purpose. In the Paperwhite and Oasis versions they are 17 and 25, respectively.
In addition, the new Kindle lacks water resistance (IPX8 certification) and light temperature adjustment. These features remain limited to the most advanced models in the lineup.
Storage gain is another highlight. But, probably, the 16 GB offered now will only be interesting for those who subscribe to the Amazon Audible audiobook service (not officially available in Brazil).
Just for the record, night mode is also present here.
New Kindle: how much and when?
Sales in Brazil have already started. O new Kindle costs R $ 499 on Amazon (or BRL 477.05 when paying in cash). The novelty is only R$ 50 more expensive than the Kindle 10th generationwhich is still for sale.
If it’s worth it? Based on the new specs, it does. The 300 ppi resolution is really the main attribute. This feature makes reading more comfortable, especially dense content or very detailed documents.
