More details about the rumored updated Kindle Fire

The China Times has some details about the rumored next-generation Kindle Fire:
  • The next-generation Kindle Fire will be announced either at the end of this month or in early August. 
  • It'll still be priced at $199, will have a metal chassis instead of plastic, and the display will come from LG Displays and Panasonic
  • The screen will be higher resolution than the current model. 
  • It may have a camera, which the current model lacks, but the translation that discusses this feature is very confusing. 
  • Quanta, which builds the current model and will also build the new one, has received an initial order for two million units. 
  • Heavy shipments of components for the new model started in June. 
There are no details on the processor, memory, graphics, etc., but I wouldn't be surprised to see them be very similar to the Google Nexus 7.
