The E. -Commerce group has shown a new Kindle Paperwhite generation on its Canadian platform – probably not on purpose. This is indicated by the fact that the corresponding pages with Kindle Paperwhite 5 and Kindle Paperwhite 5 Signature Edition have now been deleted. A comparison table that shows the technical details of the new e-book reader, which will apparently soon be released, has found its way onto the Internet. The new digital reading devices were discovered by Reddit users and the industry portal Good-E-Reader.
6.8 inch display and wireless charging
The signature edition of the upcoming Kindle Paperwhite 5 brings 32 gigabytes of storage space instead of eight gigabytes like the basic version. In addition, the lighting of the more expensive model automatically adapts to the prevailing lighting conditions. And the Kindle Paperwhite 5 Signature Edition is said to support wireless charging. However, this time there does not seem to be a version with a cellular connection.
According to the information on the Canadian Amazon site, the Kindle Paperwhite 5 will cost 149 Canadian dollars. The Signature Edition costs 209.99 Canadian dollars. That would be the equivalent of 99 euros or just under 140 euros. However, it is questionable whether these prices will continue to exist when the market is launched in Germany. The current Kindle Paperwhite came on the market in November 2018 in the cheapest version for 120 euros.
