This Qualcomm Snapdragon 805-powered Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 could be a product ready to hit the market, but it is also possible for it to be an internal test version that precedes a product with higher specs overall.

An entry in the AnTuTu benchmark database spotted earlier today proves that Amazon may be close to the release of an updated Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 tablet. It is not known yet when will it come out, but this is the first slate we heard of that promises to be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC.

The features of the upgraded Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 revealed by AnTuTu are the following:

  • Processor: 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 with Adreno 420 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; not specified at this time, probably unchanged (currently available in 16, 32 and 64 GB variants)
  • Display: 8.9-inch with 1,600X,2560 pixels, 100% sRGB color accuracy and 339 ppi
  • Cameras: 1 MP front, 8 MP back
  • Operating system: Android 4.4.4 KitKat

According to the news piece published by AnTuTu on this matter, it is possible that Amazon will not release this version but only use it for internal testing of the Snapdragon 805 processor. The improved Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 should also offer more memory, better cameras and maybe even a higher resolution screen, but this remains to be seen.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
