A new generation of Kindle devices appears to have leaked via a since-removed comparison chart on Amazon Canada, GoodEReader reports. Two new devices are shown in the chart, a CA$149.99 (around $117) Kindle Paperwhite, and a CA$209.99 (around $164) Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition. Both feature a larger 6.8-inch E ink display compared to the current 6-inch Paperwhite, but only the more expensive model has the new wireless charging, alongside more storage and lights that adjust based on the brightness of the environment.

The basic Kindle Paperwhite appears to include 8GB of storage, while the Signature Edition has 32GB, the same as the two storage options available for the current Paperwhite. The 300ppi resolution is also unchanged. However, the amount of LEDs for the device’s front-light has increased from five with the current Paperwhite to 17, and their color temperature should also be adjustable like the current Kindle Oasis. The screens on both devices will be flush with the bezel, and they also have an IPX8 waterproof rating, same as the current Paperwhite. Wi-Fi connectivity is included, but there’s no mention of cellular models.
