Some additional specs from that article, courtesy of Google Translate:


Quote:
The old Kindle Paperwhite weighed 217 grams, the new one, only 182 grams.

The screen always measures 6 inches high definition

thanks to an extra LED is 10% brighter

it is 10% thinner (8.18 mm thick against the 9.1 mm of the previous model).

the back of the new Paperwhite was made of a plastic anti-slip material

the screen is noticeable "to the touch" for a new anti-scratch protection, which makes the covers non-essential.

resistance to water: the IPX8 certification says that the new Paperwhite can stand up to two meters deep for up to 60 minutes (in practice if it ends up in the bathtub, it does not die).

The software side has also been improved. The new home makes it easier to find a new book to read based on the reading history, even among the titles included in the subscription to Kindle Unlimited or Prime Reading.

And each user can save his reading settings, selecting fonts, character orientation and more, thus personalizing the reading experience (the good news is that these news will be available on the latest devices and on the sixth-generation Kindle).

The 32GB w/o cellular does sound appealing, but since I've switched from an older PW to a Kobo Clara HD, I will wait and see what Kobo's response is

As long as my PW works, I'm not going to splash the cash unless Amazon offers a 8 inch screen. You hear me Mr Bezos?

Well that settles that, for now. Although I am happy to see Amazon continuing to invest in the 6 inch market. With all the hype around bigger devices like the Oasis and the Kobo Forma, there are still some of us who actually like smaller devices, at smaller prices. The 25 gram weight loss and big jump in storage both very appealing.
