It seems like Amazon is all set to launch the next generation of the Kindle Paperwhite pretty soon. As spotted by GOODEREADER on Amazon Canada, the new Kindle Paperwhite brings some significant improvements over its predecessor that was launched back in 2018.

According to the product description page, the device will have a larger display and will come in two variants - the standard Paperwhite with 8GB of storage while the Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition will feature 32GB of storage. Both of these variants will have a 6.8-inch display with 300 PPI. The e-reader features 17 white and amber front LED lights instead of just 5 ones from the last-gen. The color temperature can also be adjustable just like on the Kindle Oasis.
