Wink Leaked spy shot of all new kindle 2017

Hi all,

https://puu.sh/vndhf/76c5a13db2.jpg

Only one pic leaked from a retailer in China, perhaps we can name it Paperwhite 4 or simplified Voyage. CPU still not upgraded, same flash storage as previous gen, same 300 ppi, Waterproofing. that's all, a very uninspired mid-market product. And kindle voyage & oasis would be suspended production, there will be 2 new models in 2018, 6 inch & 7 inch devices at high-end market.

Thanks for reading my post full of weird grammar sentences, Im sorry, english is not my native lang, hope you guys could understand it XDD
Heres original thread in chinese if you are interested in it.

The source thread was removed, fortunately I made a copy for that(in chinese).
Spoiler:
各位期待新品(KV简化版KPW4)还有几个月就要和大家见面了。上一张抹去LOGO的虚化图(KPW4) ,高清图请去我的地盘看(戳我名字或签名左上角)
首先澄清并且击破置顶贴的XXXXX即将下架的传言,据本人所知,KINDLE OASIS的确老郭家收线了,不是因为别的产品不好,是因为卖的有些贵,产品性能和KV这一款重叠了。KV 虽然说是14年旗舰,但是配置依然是顶尖水准的,至于谣言中的KO下一代,咱们期待明年和它见面吧。明年我 们会看到2款不同尺寸的Kindle高端设备,均为金属材质还有优秀的防水功能。
好 言归正传回到今年下半年的主角上面来,以往的KPW系列产品都沿袭了初代的设计,正是这臃肿的外观设计,导 致我使用半个月的KPW2转而投向外形特别又小巧的KV上来,KV已经在我手上使用了2年,我仍然喜欢它的 外形,可能它是KINDLE家族里面最漂亮的一款吧。17年下半年即将上市的新款,是KPW4,不是KV2 代,KINDLE VOYAGE可能不会再有下一代了,取代它地位的将是全新的KPW4,我也称它为KV简化版,这款设备的长 度仅仅比KV长了0.5厘米,宽度和厚度基本和KV一致,拥有一块塑料材质的纯平前面板,具有防水功能。屏 幕仍然采用的是300PPI 6寸的屏幕和前款一样,内存CPU都没有进行升级,新一代的KPW系列或许会有品控上的问题,据我所知,老 郭家部门关闭已不为其代工了,为其代工是江苏的一家新工厂,新一代的KPW系列很有可能有轻微的阴阳屏,希 望这几个月能够克服这个许多用户都比较关注的问题。还有背面外观我就不透露了。留给大家一个期 待吧。
最后说一下售价和战略分布,目前国产的几个牌子新一代的机型由于电子器件的上涨,售价均已达到1100~1 200左右,新一代的KPW系列很有可能定价在1200左右。和KV价位重叠,为了不影响KPW4的销量。 KV因此会下架停止销售,未来的产品战略是2016款的入门级(NK),2017款的中端级(新款KPW4 ),和2018款的高端机(2种尺寸6和7寸)。KV和KO因此可能在明年上半年退出历史舞台 。好了 我就说这么多了。给所有喜欢阅读的朋友宣扬一句:产品不是最重要的,热爱阅读才是最重要的。


P.S. 'Paperwhite 4' would be probably available during the 2nd half of the year.
