Thin and light

Ultrafast quad-core processor

Improved—Fire HDX 8.9 features the all-new, faster quad-core 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 805 processor—delivering quick app launches and smooth multi-tasking.

4x faster Wi-Fi

Improved—Equipped with 802.11ac Wi-Fi, speeds can reach up to 600Mbps which is up to 4x faster than the previous generation Fire HDX 8.9. With MIMO (Multiple Input and Multiple Output) and 802.11ac you can seamlessly multi-task high-bandwidth activities like streaming music on wireless speakers, while downloading an HD movie, and transferring high-resolution photos.

Dolby Atmos

New—Fire HDX 8.9 is the first tablet to feature the Dolby Atmos experience, which transforms the headphone listening experience by creating multidimensional sound that flows above and around you. In a movie with Dolby Atmos, sound moves around you to match what you see on the screen—rain on a roof, airplanes taking off—so you'll hear the sounds where they would be in real life. Additional enhancements include 5.1 multi-channel sound field, playback volume consistency, dynamically adjusting audio content, and clear movie dialog for Amazon Instant Video.

Console-quality graphics

Improved—The new Adreno 420 graphics processor delivers high frame rates and console-quality graphics—70% faster graphics performance than the previous generation Fire HDX 8.9. Graphic-intensive games and advanced apps are ultra-responsive and run smoothly, using less battery power.

Exclusive HDX display

Fire HDX 8.9 has the highest resolution (2560x1600) and the best pixel density (339 ppi) of our new Fire tablets, providing an incredible multimedia experience. The HDX display features over 4 million pixels for vivid, lifelike images that go beyond standard HD.

Perfect color

The HDX display features 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, which 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 condition, including outdoors.

Dynamic Light Control

The new Fire HDX 8.9 now features Dynamic Light Control, which changes the white point of the display, matching its color and warmth to the ambient light of your surroundings in order to make the display more closely resemble a piece of paper—this makes the best reading experience on a tablet even better.


Rear-facing camera

Fire HDX 8.9 features an 8MP rear-facing camera that allows for high-resolution photos and 1080p HD video. The rear camera includes an LED flash, Electronic Image Stabilization to remove hand jitters, a wide-aperture lens, and support for Panorama and High Dynamic Range (HDR) photos. Our camera app also includes a film strip of recent photos and videos for quick access to edit, share, and delete.

Camera-ready case
