Kindle Voyage, 6" High-Resolution Display (300 ppi) with Adaptive Built-in Light, PagePress Sensors, Wi-Fi - Includes Special Offers

Kindle Voyage is our thinnest Kindle ever, with the brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display, plus reimagined page turns and an adaptive front light.

Brilliantly crisp display

New—The high-resolution display (300 ppi) features sharp, dark text that reads even more like the printed page. The micro-etched glass display diffuses light to eliminate glare and match the feel of paper. Kindle Voyage features the brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display of any Kindle.

Effortless page turns

New—PagePress allows you to turn the page without lifting a finger. Simply apply pressure on the bezel to turn the page, and PagePress will provide a silent haptic response for consistent and immediate feedback. PagePress is a custom-designed force sensor made of carbon and silver, which reacts to a subtle increase of pressure, triggers a page-turn, and provides a haptic response only your thumb can perceive.

Light that adjusts with you

New—Kindle Voyage can be read in bright sunlight or total darkness—and it's smart enough to know the difference. The new adaptive front light automatically adjusts the brightness of the display based on your environment, and can even be fine-tuned further to your personal preferences. When reading in the dark, the adaptive front light slowly lowers the display's brightness over time to match the way the eye responds to darkness.

Remarkably thin design

Improved—At just 7.6mm thin, Voyage is our thinnest Kindle ever. Comfortably hold Kindle Voyage in one hand for long reading sessions. Kindle Voyage was designed to come one step closer to a sheet of paper, with a flush-front bezel for a clean, streamlined design. With a magnesium back and a specially-reinforced glass front, Kindle Voyage is both durable and sleek.

Short and simple definitions automatically appear above difficult words, so you can keep reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms, and more. You can adjust the number of hints you see with a simple slider.

Expanded X-Ray

X-Ray’s new timeline view lets you easily flip through notable passages to remind yourself of what’s happened in the book, or navigate easily through images. X-Ray lets you explore the "Bones of the Book." See all the passages across a book that mention relevant ideas, fictional characters, historical figures, places, or topics of interest.
