Amazon raises the level of its tablets with the Fire Max 11

Amazon has introduced the Fire Max 11 to raise the bar for its line of tablets . The new model increases the screen size and resolution over the Fire HD 10 that so far leads the series, mounts a higher-performance SoC, better cameras and connectivity, has an amount of memory and storage that we can consider sufficient, and offers Optional accessories added for productivity tasks.

Amazon’s line of electronic tablets are well known for their outstanding feature-to-price ratio . The series begins with versions below the 100-euro line, which drops further in the special promotions that the e-commerce giant brings out from time to time. No wonder they lead sales in entry-level tablets with Android.

The Fire Max 11 is something else. It’s the company’s largest, most powerful and most versatile tablet to date. It is based on an 11-inch multi-touch screen with native resolution expanded to 2000 x 1200 pixels. Optionally, an Amazon Stylus Pen with USI 2.0 support and 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity can be purchased. Also as an option, Amazon offers a detachable magnetic keyboard.

Its chipset has also been upgraded to a MediaTek MT8188J with 8-core CPU (2 ARM Cortex-A78 at 2.2 GHz and 6 Cortex-A55 at 2 GHz) with Mali-G57 MC2 GPU at 950 MHz. It comes with 4 Gbytes of RAM memory and internal storage of 64 or 128 Gbytes.

It mounts rear and front cameras, both 8 megapixels, and supports Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.3 wireless standards. It has stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, but no headphone jack. Amazon says that the body is made of aluminum and “reinforced glass” for a weight of 490 grams with a battery (we do not know its capacity) that according to the manufacturer will offer a range of up to 14 hours .

At the bottom it has a set of pogo pins dedicated to connecting the keyboard without relying on the Bluetooth connection, and a USB Type-C connector for charging and data. It is also the first Amazon tablet to feature a fingerprint reader for security and authentication tasks.
