While they will stick with the same 7 and 8.9 inch panel iterations as the preceding products, the touch panel displays are likely to get a higher pixel count squeezed into this established area, according to TechRadar.

The seven inch Kindle Fire HD 2 will pack a 1920x1200 resolution, giving it the ability to handle full HD 1080p content with ease. Meanwhile, the 8.9 inch model will have an even higher 2560x1600 resolution, putting it in the same league as the iPad's Retina Display, while actually exceeding it in terms of pixel density, thanks to its smaller area.

Extra pixels are always welcome, particularly if they are endowed upon tablets, because this means that the clarity and quality of the image can be improved without also meaning that the size and weight of the device is on the increase.

A September launch for the new Kindle Fire HD models is anticipated and they should be on sale just before Christmas, to make the most of the heightened consumer interest around this time of year.
