For months now we have been reporting that Amazon has one maybe two new Fire TV devices coming out this fall. Now it is starting to look like Amazon will release two new devices.
Yesterday AFTVnews posted that it has found evidence of not one but two new Fire TV models being tested. According to reports, Amazon has two new device models code named AFTN and AFTA.
The AFTN is likely the Fire TV 3, but what exactly the AFTA device remains unknown. The AFTN device is a 4K 60 fps with HDR device, and the AFTA is a 4K 30 fps device that does not have HDR. This likely means that the AFTA device is a mid-range device.
It’s possible that Amazon is planning to roll out a mid-range device to take on Roku’s lower priced streaming players; however, at this point, we are just in the range of wild speculation.
As best we can tell the new Fire TV is coming out in October, but the announcement could come at any time. Keep an eye on the current Fire TV models. When they go on sale it likely means we have a new Fire TV coming soon.
