A new Amazon Fire tablet shows up at FCC

Amazon Kindle Fire 7 Android tablet might get a successor soon

The description of a new tablet that has been spotted earlier this week looks like an unannounced Amazon device might soon hit the market.

The first $50 USD Amazon Fire tablet arrived almost a year ago, so having a new one on the market by the end of the year would not be a big surprise at all. However, the FCC entry spotted this week is quite cryptic, but this might be a new Amazon device that comes from a shell company to make the whole deal even harder to figure out.

The new slate has PR53DC as model name, and the documents that describe some of its specs and features have been filed by Polebridge Hole LLC. The highlights spotted in these documents include WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1 LE connectivity, a camera, a headset jack, and a microSD slot. Since it has support for additional storage via microSD, the new device is not going to join the Kindle, Fire TV, or Echo/Alexa families.

While none of these has been confirmed by Amazon yet, the company has been launching new devices in September for a few years now, so it is only a matter of time until more detailed rumors surface online.
