1. The new model will be released in 2021 the latest.

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

  1. You can wait for the 5th-generation Kindle Paperwhite. No launch date was released yet.
  2. 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.
