The Kindle Fire HDX from 2012 is a pretty capable tablet on its own, especially considering the price it is retailing for. The tablet used the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, which was considered the best in the business at the time. A new leaked AnTuTu listing is now indicating that the successor to this popular tablet from last year will sport the new Snapdragon 805 chipset which is only seen on select few devices right now. This will mean that Amazon’s next tablet will be more powerful than any of the current crop of Android tablets such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab S or even the Galaxy Tab Pro.
Of course, simply having hardware won’t cut it in this day and age, so Amazon will have to ensure that the software is utilized to work with it. The AnTuTu page also mentions the presence of an 8-megapixel camera on the back, 2GB of RAM and a 8.9 inch 2K resolution display. It looks like Amazon’s upcoming tablet will be quite a beast as far as hardware is concerned.
