  • Is a new Amazon Fire 7 tablet about to be announced?

    While we don't see Amazon refresh its product lines every year, unlike many other tech companies, it's high time we saw a follow-up to the Amazon Fire 7 tablet. Luckily, it sounds like the brand's lowest-end slate family might get an update very soon.

    This comes from Liliputing, which spotted that the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) website had been updated with a tablet which is almost definitely an upcoming Fire tablet.

    We say 'almost definitely' because, despite the fact that the Amazon or Fire branding is missing from the documents, the company which filed it, Abyssal Plain LLC, has previously filed for other slates from the company. 

    There's no actual evidence this is the Amazon Fire 7, instead of a new HD 8 or HD 10, but those ranges have been updated more recently - no, the Fire 7 is the most likely prospect.

    According to one document in the FCC listing, 'Abyssal Plain LLC' gets 180 days of confidentiality from the date of grant, which was January 4. This covers things like the user manual and photos of the device. So it sounds like we could see the device in the first half of the year, but we don't have a more solid release window just yet.

    Analysis: it probably won't be alone

    When we see the new Amazon Fire 7, it probably won't be alone. We say this because, in the Fire HD 8 and HD 10's newest generations, there have actually been two different slates for each size: a standard and a Plus. 

    The Plus often offers more RAM than its counterpart as well as wireless charging, which admittedly isn't a huge change, but the price generally doesn't increase by too much.

    So we could see an Amazon Fire 7 Plus, though as its lowest-end offering, the company might opt just to stick with one budget tablet for now.

  • We probably won't get an OLED MacBook until we get an OLED iPad first

    Apple may finally be including OLED displays in upcoming MacBook Pro laptops, according to the latest rumors out there. 

    According to long-time Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo, the switch in display technology would hinge on the iPad’s adoption of OLED. Right now, Apple is one of the only laptop manufacturers that hasn’t introduced OLED displays in any of its products.

    In his tweet, Kuo suggests the “MacBook would use OLED in 2025 at the earliest if Apple could successfully release 12.9-inch & 11-inch OLED iPads in 2024.” This does line up with earlier rumors, which also claim that Apple could release both a 10.9-inch and a 12.9-inch iPad Pro using an OLED display.

    These previous rumors have hinted at an OLED MacBook Pro for a while, while conflicting reports claim the launch to be either in 2022 or 2025. Regardless of the actual launch date, both rumors seem to point at Samsung being the key to Apple embracing OLED for its laptop display.

    However, if Apple does release an OLED laptop in 2022, it would be a perfect match for the M2 chip that we’ve all been waiting for. That would certainly allow Apple to account for a higher display resolution, too. Just imagine — a 4K OLED MacBook Pro.

    But as always, this is all mere conjecture so until Apple officially announces anything take it all with a huge pinch of salt.
