- The new Amazon Fire 7 tablet for 2022 has a USB-C port, finally.
- Amazon also upgraded the processor, RAM, and battery life.
- However, the tablet is also more expensive, starting at $59.
For years now, the smallest and cheapest Amazon tablet has been the company’s best seller. Its incredibly low price of just $49 no doubt helped the tablet be a success. However, the last time the device got a refresh was in 2019, so it’s been overdue for some love.
Thankfully, Amazon issued a 2022 refresh for the Amazon Fire 7 tablet today. Most notably, the tablet finally has a USB-C port for charging. Since its inception, the Fire 7 has had the long-outdated Micro-USB port instead, so this is a welcome change.
