Breakthrough HDX Display
Kindle Fire HDX has a high resolution display (1920×1200) and high pixel density (323 ppi) for an incredible multimedia experience. The display features over 2 million pixels for vivid, lifelike images that go beyond standard HD.
Both the 7″ and 8.9″ Kindle Fire HDX displays feature perfect color (100% sRGB), displaying images and videos as the photographer or videographer intended.
Better Viewing Indoors and Out
The HDX display features dynamic image contrast, a unique feature that automatically optimizes the color of each pixel based on the amount of light in your surroundings. This makes images and videos even easier to see in any lighting conditions, including outdoors.
Front-Facing HD Camera
Both the 7″ and 8.9″ Kindle Fire HDX tablets have a front-facing 720p HD camera, perfect for Skype HD video calls and taking photos to share via Facebook or e-mail.
