Kindle Paperwhite is the most popular Amazon e-reader, based on a number of left reviews and ratings.
Kindle Paperwhite 4 – things to know
- The e-reader was launched in November 2018, so it’s over two years old.
- The waterproof design can withstand immersion in 2 meters of fresh water for up to 60 minutes.
- The device features slim design with edge-to-edge glass front.
- There are two storage options – 8 or 32 GB. If you plan to listen to audiobooks, pick up the bigger one.
- You can choose from several fashionable colors, matching the new line of Amazon Fire tablets: Plum, Sage, Twilight Blue, and Black.
Kindle Paperwhite 5 should be released next year
- Usually, no more than two years pass to see the new generation Kindle model.
- Rumors say the new model may be released this autumn, but having in mind Amazon’s decreasing interest in the Kindle, the launch will most probably happen somewhere next year.
- The new model is said to have warm light. The feature changes blue light to a warmer tone to reduce eye strain and prevent sleep problems.
- Warm light and bigger storage options may affect the price of the 5th-generation Kindle Paperwhite. We assume it will cost $139.99 or even $149.99.
Buy Paperwhite 4 – but for a price no higher than $80
- There is no reason to buy a two-year-old device for a regular price.
- If you have to replace your current Kindle model with a new one, hunt for deals.
- During Prime Day 2020, the price of Kindle Paperwhite 4 was reduced to $79.99 for the entry-level version.
- We expect the $50 off Kindle Paperwhite deal on Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2020.
- To save $30 more, make sure to get the version with a free 3-month Kindle Unlimited subscription.
If you need warm light, you have two options
- You can wait for the 5th-generation Kindle Paperwhite. No launch date was released yet.
- You can buy Kindle Oasis – the top-shelf model that sports warm light. Make sure to grab the Black Friday deal. Kindle Oasis 3 may cost even $75 less. The Prime Day 2020 price was set at $174.99.
