The new Kindle Oasis has a battery that can last up to six weeks and gets fully charged within two hours. It features a 7-inch 300ppi display which is larger than the previous model.

The device is only 3.5mm thin and features an aluminium body.
The Wi-Fi only variant has 8GB storage and Wi-Fi+3G variant has 32GB of storage. Customers can also purchase a cover with Kindle Oasis which also transforms into a stand for hands-free reading. Water-safe fabric covers are priced at Rs 2,999 and come in indigo, charcoal, and sandstone shades. Premium leather covers are priced at Rs 3,999 and come in black or merlot.
“Ten years ago, we introduced our first Kindle with the mission of delivering any book every written in 60 seconds or less,” said Dave Limp, Senior Vice President, Amazon Devices. “With a larger 7-inch, 300 ppi display, waterproof design, the all-new Kindle Oasis is our most advanced Kindle ever. Its thin, light, and waterproof design allows readers to stay engaged in the author’s world in even more ways and places than ever before.”
