The new Kindle Paperwhite now has a bigger 6.8-inch screen, a blue-to-yellow front light, and USB-C. Amazon’s most popular Kindle e-reader just got its first significant upgrade in three years.
There’s also a new “Signature Edition” Paperwhite, which adds an auto-adjusting light sensor, 32GB of storage, and wireless charging. A Kids Edition comes with a 2-year warranty, a lovely case, and a year’s worth of Amazon’s Kids+ subscription library. A new Signature Edition Paperwhite, meanwhile, adds an auto-adjusting light sensor and wireless charging.
The new model looks like a complete refresh. A new processor offers 20% faster page turns, Amazon says. The screen is more prominent with a smaller bezel around it. And the front light, formerly white only, now can shift to amber for more restful reading. The Signature Edition works with any Qi wireless charger. In addition, all the new models will come with Amazon’s new “reimagined” Kindle UI. The Kindle Paperwhite has long been our primary pick in Amazon’s lineup for several reasons. Its 300ppi screen is more restful than the lower-cost Kindles’ rougher displays, and it has a flat front that misses sand at the beach and is waterproof.
New Paperwhite Kids
The Kids Edition of the Paperwhite has a selection of colorful covers. The Paperwhite Signature Edition closes the gap between the $129 Paperwhite and the $249 Kindle Oasis, which looks like less of a value. The Oasis has a 7-inch screen, color-changing light, and automatic light sensors—features now found on the Signature Edition, too. The Oasis still has physical page-turn buttons and more front-light LEDs, but those may not be worth the added cost. With the new highlights comes a slight price boost. The base $129.99 Paperwhite is now $139.99. The previous 32GB model was $159.99; it now becomes the Signature model, costing $189.99. The Kids Edition costs $159.99. As usual, that’s a considerable discount over buying a Paperwhite, a case, and the Kids+ subscription. The Paperwhite’s top competitor now is probably Kobo’s $169.99 Libra H20, which has a similar screen size and color-changing front light and is also waterproof.
