The 7-inch Kindle Fire HD in turn would jump to 1,920x1,200 pixels, say BGR's sources, while the 8.9-inch model would offer your eyes a resolution of 2,560x1,600.
The new tablets would go through a few small design changes, such as a repositioning of the power and volume buttons. They would also be lighter than their current counterparts.
Pricing remains a mystery, but BGR's sources say the new tablets would launch in the fall, possibly around September ahead of the holiday shopping season.
Amazon refused BGR's request to comment on the information, saying that it doesn't comment on rumors and speculation. CNET also contacted Amazon for a response and will update the story with any further information.
