For memory, the device will increase from 1 GB to 1.5 GB, and its 8-inch display will retain the same resolution of 800×1280 pixels.
Amazon has gone on quite a strange move and decided to reduce the built-in memory of the tablet from the previous 16 GB to 8 GB, of which users will be available to all 4.5 GB. Resolution unit decreased from 5 megapixels to 2 megapixels camera for video calls in succession Amazon Fire HD 0.3 uses 8 megapixel camera, as well as the operating system it will receive Fire OS 5.1 to Android 5.1.1 basis.
