Amazon’s Paperwhite 5 and Paperwhite 5 Signature Edition leak in full
We can expect Amazon to release the latest Paperwhite 5 Signature Edition Kindle pretty soon, as evidenced by the names appearing on the Canadian store of the giant. While they didn’t get their own listings the pricing was confirmed as well.
The Paperwhite 5 will start at 8GB of storage while the Signature Edition will offer 32GB but both options will sport 6.8-inch displays with 300ppi density. Additionally, the screen will lie flush with the bezels and have 17 white and amber LED lights for even backlighting. The 17 LED lights is a big upgrade over the previous model, which employed just 5.
The Signature Edition goes one step further with an ambient light sensor that adjusts the screen brightness automatically. The Kindle also gets Wi-Fi for purchasing audiobooks and ebooks off of Amazon’s store and wireless charging support.
The 8GB option is listed at CAD149 ($116), while the Signature edition is and CAD209 ($165).
