Leaked images show new Kindle Fire HD design featuring more angular corners.

There's no doubt that Amazon plans on refreshing their Kindle Fire tablets soon and the folks at BGR have managed to get their hands on  the 7" model. Based on the images they managed to snap of the device, the new Kindle features a complete design overhaul, especially on the back cover.

The most striking change seems to be the corners on the Kindle Fire HD, featuring a more angular design that is actually reminiscent of the HTC Diamond. In addition, the tablet's speakers have transitioned to the top of the device, while the power and volume buttons reside on the back thanks to the sloping edges. Unfortunately, the site's sources blurred out any identifying features on the back, although it should consist of only the Amazon logo, with the front pretty blank as well.

As for the device's innards, BGR mentions that the 7" model will feature a 1920x1080 pixel resolution, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.2.2 and 16/32/64GB of storage. The 8.9" version won't differ much either, with a 2560x1600 pixel resolution and an 8MP camera the only differences.

The 7" Kindle Fire HD is expected to officially launch sometime over the next few weeks, but the 8.9" version might not be available till November.
