Mine has actually updated to Fire OS 6.1 and I'm sure there will be another update on the operating system in the future. The new 15 watt charging ability is great and the octa-core processor is sweet on paper and it may run faster than the 2017 version but that's not enough to make me spend $150 for a base 2019 model when I love the one I have. It still has just 2 GB of RAM... I was expecting at least 4 GB and a 2.4-2.5 gigahertz processor over the 1.8 gigahertz in the 2017. The screen is still the same 224 DPI IPS panel as well. I'm sure it's a great tablet if you don't already own it's predecessor. I love my 2017 10.1" but I was expecting more given that even base model phones have more RAM, quicker processors and nicer panels. see less The old one still works like a charm and is very quick especially considering I grabbed it on sale for $79.

Three major things a modern octa-core processor charging is via USB C and an update of the Fire OS to Fire OS 7.3.1 a custom version of Android 9. The old one has an ancient quad-core processor and ran Fire OS 5.6.4.0 based on Android 5.1
