Updated: Amazon is already selling its $49.99-Fire tablet. The report says the new Amazon tablet actually measures seven inches. It added that the 8-inch and 10-inch tablets are already available for pre-order. They are priced at $149.99 and $229.99, respectively, and will begin shipping Sept. 30.
Famed Twitter leaker, Evan Blass, who is well-known to have great connections in the industry and often share leaked photos of upcoming devices, revealed alleged renders of Amazon's next flagship 10-inch Fire tablet.
Earlier, we reported a rumored plan of Amazon to unveil a $50-tablet for customers who are looking for a simple and affordable tablet for their straightforward uses, such as streaming videos and doing online shopping. This device, according to the report, will come in a 6-inch screen and will be launched for the holiday season.
Moreover, we also shared to the public the rumor mill speculating that other Amazon tablets which will be part of the upcoming tablet lineup will boast of 8-inch as well as 10-inch display.
Now, tipster Blass has leaked renders of the purported 10-inch flagship tablet.

If the rumor is true enough, reports say the upcoming 10-inch Fire slate will be the Amazon's biggest tablet so far.
While Blass did not go into the detail, from the looks of it, the tablet is rumored to be powered by the Android Lollipop, a version of the Android mobile operating system created by Google.
Interface-wise, the tablet is said to sport a cleaner look and feel.
"[N]ice clean design looks like a nexus," says a Twitter user, commenting on the tipster's tweet.
The tablet is said to be a great device for enjoying Amazon's content, which include the Kindle eBooks, Prime Music, as well as Prime Video. It is also worth noting that it has support for the HBO Now app.
Earlier reports speculated that the price tag for the 10-inch model may be higher than the $399 reported price of the 8.9-inch HDX model, currently the largest Kindle Fire tablet the company offers.
Meanwhile, the alleged Amazon's $50-tablet was reportedly spotted on GFX Bench. Named as "Amazon KFFOWI," the device is rumored to sport a 6.7-inch 1,024 x 600 resolution display. The tablet will also feature a 1.3 MHz quad-core MediaTek MT8127 Cortex-A7 processor and will house 1GB of RAM. The leaked info also says the device will be equipped with a .3-megapixel front-facing camera and a 1.8-megapixel camera. However, the company has yet to announce the official launching of its new Fire tablets.
