Is the newest Kindle Paperwhite (2018) waterproof?
Amazon introduces a new twist to the Kindle line every year, pushing the device a litter closer to perfection. While smartphone brands keep improving the water resistance rate of their phone, Kindle, the daily companion of bookworms, was expected to catch up the trend.
This feature was firstly added on the second-generation Oasis in last year. Amazon said you should feel comfortable taking it into the tub, the pool, or the ocean. It is designed to withstand immersion in up to two meters in water for up to an hour. However, a lot of people still expect this feature showing up on Kindle Paperwhite, the most popular and best-selling device in the Kindle range. After all, it is a more cost-efficient choice.
In this year, Amazon updates the Paperwhite, featured new features that were introduced with second-generation Oasis, IPX8 waterproof and Audible audiobooks. Kindle Paperwhite can survive after immersed in up to two meters in water for up to an hour. Now enjoy your Kindle time everywhere you want.
Today, you can own the newest iteration of the Kindle Paperwhite for $99.99, saving 23% off. Besides waterproof and audible audiobooks, the new Kindle Paperwhite comes with all the features you have come to expect. It has a glare-free, pixel-dense 300ppi display for easy reading in any lighting condition and a long battery life. Thinner and lighter than previous versions make it more portable and effort-saving, and the on-sale offering packs in twice as much as storage (8G) as its predecessor.
