The latest Kindle Fire HD from Amazon is shaping up to be one impressive slate, if rumours are accurate. And now, thanks to a BGR exclusive, we can get a look at it.

The 7-inch HD tablet is on show here although there is word that we can also expect an 8.9-inch model to launch. Expect the new design to feature a more angular shape, redesigned buttons and stereo speakers moved to the top of the tablet. The band across the back has been removed for a smooth back broken up only by the Amazon logo.

The specs to expect are a 1920 x 1200 (323ppi) resolution display, 2GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core, 2GB RAM, optional data connectivity, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and sizes of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB storage. No word on the camera, but if it's the same as the 8.9-inch model is rumoured to have you can expect 8-megapixels. The 8.9-inch model should come with a similarly high res screen at 2560 x 1600 pixels (339pp).

Both models are supposed to be lighter and more comfortable than current Fire tablets. The 7-inch slate should be here in the next few weeks while the 8.9-inch version is expected to ship in November.
