The wait for this behemoth is over, it's 2019 and the paperwhite 4 is up for grabs for you.
Twice the storage, waterproof and so much more sexier specs. Find out what the buzz is all about below....
The latest Kindle Paperwhite 4 will be finally released in Singapore, Feb 2019. The newest Kindle costs $240, compared to $180 for the previous generation. Nevertheless, with the new
features and improvements, the Paperwhite 4 model will certainly be worth the upgrade. Here are the reasons why.
Water resistant, IPX8 rating
The most significant improvement is the resistance to water. IPX8 rating means the device passed the tests to withstand immersion in 2 meters of fresh water up to 60 minutes. The fact that the favorite device is safe in contact with water will encourage many users to read more often in the bathtub or take the Paperwhite on active holidays.
In terms of the display used for the Kindle Paperwhite 4 has not changed. It’s the 1448 × 1072 px, 6-inch E-Ink Carta touchscreen offering 300 ppi pixel density. Both have backlights, but Paperwhite 4 features 5 backlight LEDs instead of 4. This additional LED keeps the front lighting more uniform across the board.
Kindle Paperwhite 4 is also aesthetically more pleasing with the added smooth glass layer and without the raised bezels found on the older model. This gives the kindle an overall more premium feel and should help keep water from invading its circuits.
The Paperwhite 4 is also thinner and lighter. It measures 167 mm x 116 mm x 8.18 mm and weighs 182 grams. The Paperwhite 3 measures 169 mm x 117 mm x 9.1 mm and weighs 205 grams.
The Paperwhite is the last Amazon e-reader to include Bluetooth chip. The Bluetooth will enable you to connect headphones or a speaker, and this is a way to listen to Audible audiobooks on your Kindle Paperwhite 4.
Audiobooks you own from Audible will appear alongside your books and can be downloaded to the device. Access to the Audible store is also possible from the device, and purchase of audible books can be made.
NOTE: None of the Kindle models offered in 2018 has a headphone jack. You will need to buy Bluetooth earpieces or speakers to listen to audiobooks on your Kindle. Increased Storage Space
With the demand for more storage space, the new generation of Kindle Paperwhite has finally heeded the request.
Kindle Paperwhite 4 comes with the same storage space as the Kindle Oasis, from 4GB to 8GB.
8 GB – approximately 6 GB are available to the user. You will be able to download 4000 to 6000 of ebooks, or approximately 30 – 40 full-length audiobooks in standard quality.
Why buy the Kindle Paperwhite 4?
If you’re looking to upgrade an older e-reader, or making your first kindle purchase, the Kindle Paperwhite 4 is the obvious choice.
The basic Kindle is cheaper than Kindle Paperwhite 4, but it lacks the led display and many of the higher-end features that are present in Paperwhite 4.
