LUXEMBOURG—16 May, 2019—Amazon today announced the next generation of its best-selling Fire 7 tablet, built from the ground up for entertainment.

Fire 7 still starts at only £49.99 and is available in Black and 3 new colours: Twilight Blue, Plum and Sage.

“Fire 7 is our best-selling tablet with tens of millions sold worldwide,” said Eric Saarnio, Head of Amazon Devices EU. “For under £50, we’re making it even better for customers with a faster processor and 2x the base storage, so customers can enjoy even more of their favourite entertainment at home and on-the-go.
