Amazon Launches New Kindle Paperwhites: Here’s What They Offer

Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite line has always been a great choice for anyone looking to invest in one of the best e-book readers available.

And Amazon has just made the lineup even better, recently announcing three new models. We’re highlighting everything you need to know about the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition, new Kindle Paperwhite, and Kindle Paperwhite for Kids.

The Top-of-the-Line Choice: Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition

As you probably could guess by the name, the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition is the new high-end choice for the Paperwhite line.

The e-reader sports a larger 6.8-inch display with smaller bezels and a front-flush design. An auto-adjusting light sensor that will change the temperature of the Kindle depending on the lighting around you for the best quality reading session.

Charging is also taking a big step forward. For the first time, the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition uses a USB-C charger. And you can also juice up the e-reader with any Qi-compatible charger that many of us use for our smartphones.

Amazon says the battery life is up to 10 weeks of normal use, the longest for any Kindle Paperwhite.

The Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition also offers 32GB of storage so you can download all the audiobooks, comics, newspapers, and magazines you can desire.

You can pre-order the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition now and it will arrive on October 27. It’s $189.99 and doesn’t show any ads on the lock screen.

The Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition is perfect for anyone entrenched in the Amazon ecosystem and can’t get enough of their books.

Kindle Paperwhite: Another Great Option

The new Kindle Paperwhite offers many of the same great features as the Signature Edition, but for a lower price tag.

It sports the same 6.8-inch screen but without the automatically adjusting backlight. But you can still manually customize the warm light to best suit you.

Also missing is the wireless charging option on the more expensive model. It still can be charged with a USB-C cable, which is music to anyone’s ears who has dealt with a micro-USB cable. The battery is also identical to the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition.

You’ll also have less storage, 8GB. Even so, that should hold hundreds of books for on-the-go.

Both the Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition feature a redesigned Kindle interface that adds new features and a more intuitive reading experience.

Just like the Signature Edition, the new Kindle Paperwhite can be pre-ordered now with deliveries arriving on October 27. The ad-supported version is $139.99 while you’ll pay $20 for an e-reader without ads.

It’s a perfect option for someone looking for a great new e-reader without a top-notch price tag.

Customized for Young Readers: Kindle Paperwhite for Kids

For younger readers, Amazon has introduced the first Kindle Paperwhite for Kids.

That kid-friendly version features the same new Kindle Paperwhite and more. You can select from one of three case options to help protect the e-reader.

Also included for no charge is a 1-year subscription to Amazon Kids+ that offers thousands of books and a number of Audible books for younger readers.

And for parent’s peace of mind, Amazon provides a 2-year worry-free guarantee. If the Kindle Paperwhite for Kids breaks for any reason, Amazon will replace it for free.

The e-reader is $159.99 and can be pre-ordered now. It will arrive on October 27 as well. There are no ads.

New Kindle Options for Many Types of Readers

The new Kindle Paperwhite line has something for every type of reader.

Even if you’re turned off by the Paperwhite Signature Edition price, the next-generation Kindle Paperwhite has many of the same great features. And the Kindle Paperwhite for Kids is a great choice for parents looking to help kids enjoy reading from the huge Amazon library.
