No new model in 2020?

We're in September and we only got the Nia... Is it a safe assumption that we're not getting a new model in 2020? I was waiting to change my Aura One, it looks like the Forma 2018 is the only option right? Thanks!

The Nia was released in 2020, wasn't it? That means it IS "a new model in 2020".

Thanks for the clarification - I was wondering whether time had gone all wibbly wobbly and the Nia actually came out in 2019. Two new models in one calendar year would be unusual, would it not?

Nah, there's generally two revisions each year... And since there's been two years after the Forma release, I was hoping for an Aura One Two (!!) This fall.

I guess it's COVID. There have been no new Kindles either this year.

That puts Kobo ahead, since it has released a brand new model this year.

Well, not an Aura one, but at least a flagship one (or do we say top of the line?).

FWIW, this wikipedia page has 5 years out of the last 10 with two models released, and 5 with only one. So having only one this year is far from unusual

You're giving Kobo a bit too much credit. The Nia is no more than a re-badged Tolino Page 2 which came out last year.

There's only been one Aura ONE which, at 7.8", is quite a bit different than the other Auras. I, personally don't think an Aura ONE 2 is ever coming out (having been replaced by the Forma) but there seems to be a fairly large contingent of Aura ONE users who don't like the Forma — so I guess it's possible.

But unless Amazon seriously revises the firmware, there would be nothing special about a new Kindle unless they came out with a 10.3" screen.
