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.

The Kindle Oasis Reader comes with a protective leather cover attached with the aid of magnets and housing a backup battery.
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.
