Amazon will ship a new version of its high-end Kindle Oasis next month, the latest in a series of refreshes for the company’s line of e-readers.
The new Oasis boasts similar specs to previous models with features like a 7-inch illuminated screen, long-life battery and IPX8-level waterproofing that’s designed to protect the device even if it’s dunked in a bathtub or a lake. The new version also features a color adjustable front light to make it easier to read in a variety of light conditions.
“Kindle is designed to create a sanctuary reading experience, and the all-new Kindle Oasis exemplifies this — whether you’re reading poolside on vacation or in in the comfort of your bed,” said Kevin Keith, vice president of Amazon devices said in a statement.
Kindle Oasis starts at $249.99 for an 8GB version, and a 32GB edition costs $279.99. The devices will begin shipping July 24, and Amazon is also offering a variety of Kindle covers priced between $39.99 and $64.99.
