New Kindle Paperwhite to debut early next year, reportedly features a 300ppi screen

It was not so long ago when Amazon announced a new Kindle Paperwhite with a slightly-upgraded hardware. But TechCrunch is reporting that the company is now developing a new Kindle Paperwhite with far better features.

The said prototype reportedly features a 300ppi screen - a huge leap from the 212ppi screen on the current Kindle Paperwhite. Amazon has also reportedly nabbed a deal with E Ink to proffer a new 300ppi screen on its e-readers. Kobo apparently got an early deal with E Ink this year to use 265ppi screens on the Kobo Aura HD. That, according to TechCrunch, angered Amazon.

If the said new Kindle Paperwhite is real, then the table must have turned in favor of Amazon. Apart from the screen, the new e-reader will also feature new typography for better reading, as well as a glass screen, a rear power button, and support for haptic feedback. In spite of the glass design, the new Paperwhite is said to be lighter than the current model.

Amazon has declined to comment on the report, but TechCrunch adds that it might be released sometime in Q2 next year. Amazon is also rumored to be working on two phones - a cheap one and a high-end model that has six cameras.
