Amazon updates Fire HD 8 tablet to higher spec

Amazon has refreshed its popular line of Fire HD 8 tablets with a faster processor and USB Type-C charging.

The RAM has also been increased from 1.5GB to 2GB and Amazon says the new 2.0GHz chip is 30% faster than the previous version.

The last time the 8-inch tablet was updated was in 2018 and, at £89, it remains an affordable tablet for entertainment – especially if you’re signed up to Amazon’s Prime music and video services.

The display remains the same 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and the battery is still clocked at 12 hours. But at least with USB Type-C charging, it’ll charge up faster.

Amazon has also introduced a Fire HD 8 Plus version which adds a bit more RAM and wireless charging for £20 more. The specs bump has also been applied to the ‘Kids Edition’ version of the tablet that comes with the colourful protective case and two-year extended replacement program.
