Amazon is going to be releasing a new 10 inch Fire Tablet this year. The company has just had their FCC paperwork approved for a new device. This will be the third Fire tablet to be released in 2017, the Fire 7 and Fire 8 HD came out in May.
The last time the Fire HD 10 was updated was in June of 2016, but I would hardly call it an update. It had the same processor and RAM as the 2015 model and the only thing that was different was the aluminum body and 64GB model. The last time the internals of the Fire HD 10 were updated was 2 years ago in September of 2015.
Little is known about the new 10 inch Fire tablet due to confidentiality agreements. The most revealing information about the device is that it has 802.11ac dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth and includes a microSD card slot for expanding its internal storage.
So it looks like Amazon has plenty of new products to release this year. They will have two Kindle e-Readers, Fire TV, 10 inch Fire Tablet and a new entry level Echo, without the touchscreen.
