The Design

Parading a balanced ergonomic design, the Amazon Kindle Oasis features sturdy cover glass combined with a featherweight polymer frame infused with metal through structural electroplating.

This construction results in a weight of just about 131 grams, which makes the e-reader more than 20% lighter than any other Kindle, on average. The Kindle Oasis is also the slimmest so far in its maker’s renowned e-reader range, measuring just 3.4 millimetres at its thinnest point.

The Display

The Amazon Kindle Oasis sports a 6-inch display as the Kindle Voyage. This Paperwhite touchscreen is designed to offer crispier, more paper-like reading quality with a high resolution of 300 pixels per inch.

The reader is said to have the highest screen resolution of any Kindle to date. It boasts enhanced lighting with the integrated front light featuring 60% more LEDs than any e-reader in its range. These LED lights are built into the side of the display, rather than the bottom, for more comfortable viewing.

Miscellaneous Specs and Features

This chic e-reader is powered by a processor clocked at 1 GHz. It offers 4 GB of onboard storage, capable of holding thousands of books.

The Amazon Kindle Oasis boasts a dual-battery charging system allowing you charge both the e-reader and battery cover simultaneously, when paired. The cover can automatically recharge the device enabling users get ‘months of combined battery life,’ according to Amazon.

Users can turn pages either by touching the screen or pressing a physical button on the side of the reader. The Kindle Oasis has an integrated accelerometer to enable you use it in either hands by automatically adjusting the screen and buttons appropriately.

The e-reader comes with other usual Kindle features, including Word Wise, Vocabulary Builder and Family Library.
