How to Tell Kindle Fire Generations

Posted by on .

Whatever you want to buy appropriate accessories or root Kindle Fire, you definitely need to know the device model or generation. But Kindle Fire tablets were published by Amazon yearly. You may be confused by so many Kindle Fire versions and their similar names. So a question jumped out. What generation is my Kindle Fire? Read below methods. And you will know how to tell Kindle Fire Generations easily.

Method 1: Check Kindle Fire Generations on Device

Yes, from your Kindle Fire device, you can easily check the Kindle Fire detailed information. I use a Kindle Fire HDX to write this tutorial.

Follow the step-by-step guide to check Kindle Fire generations:

Unlock Kindle Fire. Slide down from the top of Kindle Fire screen. Tap "Settings" option.

tap kindle fire settings

From "Settings" menu, tap "Device Options". Then check "Device Model". You will find the Kindle Fire generation.

Method 2: Identify Kindle Fire Generations from List of Kindle Fire Models

From the below table, you can easily find out the Kindle Fire generations. Of course, it does not only include Kindle Fire generations but Kindle Fire serial number, release year and other specific information. You can synthesize that information to determine Kindle Fire model. And you can also use it to compare Kindle Fire models and determine which one you want to buy.
