Despite all these additions, though, the new Paperwhite is 23 grams lighter than the old model and nearly a full millimeter thinner at 8.18mm. The device is available for pre-order today for ₹ 12,999 and will start shipping November 14.

The new Kindle Paperwhite is 10 percent lighter and thinner than the previous generation.

Do you plan on picking up a new Kindle Paperwhite?

The thinnest, lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet-with a flush-front design and 300 ppi glare-free display that reads like real paper even in bright sunlight.

The "invert colours" setting featured in the Kindle Oasis is also now available in Amazon's new version of the Paperwhite. Additionally, the device has been updated so that its brightness setting contains a broader range, meaning that you can more accurately adjust the Paperwhite's brightness when reading outdoors to offset the sun's glare. The new Kindle Paperwhite is created to withstand accidental drops in the bathtub, hot tub, pool and ocean. The Kindle Oasis has a IPX8 rating which means it can stay completely submerged in two meters of freshwater for up to sixty minutes, the Kobo Forma has the same certification. E-book supports audiobook format Audible (and other audio files) that you can listen through wireless headphones or speakers via Bluetooth. Another model with 32 GB of storage is available as well.

The new Kindle comes along with 2 new features, like an 'updated home', which will help the user to find the next read based on the user's reading history.

Built-in Bluetooth for Audible streaming so you can seamlessly move between listening and reading without losing your place. It's a useful feature if you share your Kindle with multiple people, or if you wear glasses occasionally but want to toggle between certain fonts and sizes at different times of day. Short and simple definitions automatically appear above hard words, so you can keep reading with fewer interruptions.

Software features such as reference tool X-Ray and the Smart Lookup dictionary are also part of the new Paperwhite.

In brief: The Kindle Voyage may have unofficially reached end-of-life status but Amazon isn't abandoning its e-reader line entirely (nor should it). These customers will have the device with three months of free Kindle unlimited subscription. With Kindle Unlimited you get the option to choose any read from around 1 million titles.
