You can now have 32 GB of internal storage, with microSD card of up to 512 GB. It also gives you hands-free access to Alexa, and has an upgraded 2MP front-facing camera.

The biggest change here is that storage options for the Fire 7 have doubled in size to 16GB and 32GB.

Tablets have shrunk in popularity in the past few years but that isnt stopping Amazon from developing its affordable Fire lineup. The sales will start on June 6, so it's less than a month left.

In terms of what's staying the same, the slate still packs a 7-inch screen, and Amazon's quoting the tablet as being twice as durable as the iPad mini.

Oddly, battery life isn't as stellar as it once was, with Amazon promising seven-hours compared to eight, but the device does retain the same £49.99 price-tag as its predecessor.

The front camera now features HD resolution up from the 480p one in the previous gen.

But this isn't the only new tablet from Amazon, as the company has also announced a new version of the Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition.

There's also a free year of Kids Unlimited which includes access to thousands of kid-friendly books, Audible audiobooks, educational apps, games, and videos-all hand-selected and age appropriate.

Screen Sharing: Let an Amazon expert guide you remotely through any feature on your screen, available 24x7, 365 days a year - for free.

If you factor in the limited-time offer of a $10 voucher for apps, you are essentially getting a quality tablet for just $40!

Both the Amazon Fire 7 and and Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition are available to pre-order today, and will start shipping on 6th June.

The Kids Edition comes with the same upgrades as the standard version but also adds an adjustable kickstand in its ruggedized casing. The Amazon Fire 7 Kids Edition is also available for pre-order, and you can do so here.
