Amazon’s Fire tablets have been a popular go-to for people who want to consume content. While not the most spec-heavy, these tablets are still a worthy buy. Amazon just introduced us to its biggest and most powerful tablet, the Amazon Fire Max 11.
So, an Amazon Fire tablet is not going to be a replacement for your iPad or Galaxy Tab. They’re not meant to be productivity powerhouses. Instead, these devices are to leverage Amazon’s wide array of Digital Services to create a media consumption package.
They’re made for watching Amazon Prime Video, listening to audible audiobooks, reading books on the Kindle library, downloading apps from the Amazon store, and who can forget shopping for items using Amazon? Not only are they great media consumption devices, but they are also very affordable.
The Amazon Fire Max 11 is amazing (well, for Amazon Fire tablet standards)
Starting off with the display, this is the biggest Amazon Fire tablet with an 11-inch display. That’s only an 8% increase over the 10.1-inch Fire tablets, but you can’t argue with more screen real estate. As for the resolution, it also got a little bit of a boost but not by much. The Fire Max 11 has a resolution of 2,000 by 1,200. That’s 9,600 pixels more than a standard 1080p display.
Moving on to the internals, this tablet, annoyingly, is sporting an unnamed SOC. All we know is that it is an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz. Amazon claims that this is the most powerful Fire tablet ever. However, you shouldn’t expect a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 to be in this device. If anything, maybe a Snapdragon 7 Gen processor. We also can’t rule out a mid-range media text Dimensity processor.
As for the other internals, this tablet has 4 gigabytes of RAM which should be just enough for a device such as this. That’s backed up by 64GB of internal storage, which is up from 32GB in the other tablets. There’s also a 128GB model. Again, that should be good for what you use this tablet for.
We don’t know the battery capacity for this tablet, but we know that it does have Wi-Fi 6 compatibility.
You’re not exactly going to use this for hardcore work, but you can use a keyboard case and an Amazon stylist with this tablet. In fact, you can try Microsoft 365 Personal free for 3 months (then $6.99/month afterward).
If you’re looking to pick up this tablet, it will only run you $229. That’s a heck of a price for a tablet this big. You can pre-order this tablet today, but it officially Launches on June 14th.
