What model of Amazon Fire tablet do I have?

Amazon’s Fire tablet, formerly known as the Kindle Fire, is available in 7-, 8-, and 10-inch versions. Even if you know you own a Fire, Fire HD, or Fire HDX, there are several different generations of hardware. Here’s how to find out exactly which tablet model you have.

How to find the model name

This information is easily accessible on the Fire tablet’s settings screen. To open it, pull down from the top of the screen and then tap the gear icon.

In the Device section of the Settings screen, tap the “Device Options” entry.

Look for the “Device Model” field. This displays the name (and generation) of your Fire tablet.

How to find your tablet specifications

If you want to learn more about the hardware specifications of your Fire tablet and how it compares to other Fire tablets, you can check out the Tablet Specifications page on Amazon’s site. It is aimed at app developers, but provides detailed hardware information for all Amazon tablets.

For example, in the screenshot above, the device name is “Fire (5th generation)”. This tablet is listed as the Fire (2015) “5th Generation” tablet on Amazon’s list of devices.

How much storage space do you have?

Amazon Fire tablets are available in different capacities. For example, there are versions of the 7th generation Fire tablet, also known as the Fire tablet (2017), with 8GB or 16GB of storage.

To find out how much storage is on your tablet, go to Settings > Storage on your Fire tablet and look at the total number under “Internal Storage”.

Your tablet won’t have as much storage as you might think because the Fire tablet’s operating system, the Android-based Amazon Fire OS, takes up some of the space. For example, in the screenshot below, our tablet shows that it has a total space of 5.62 GB. This means that it is an 8 GB model. If your tablet shows that it is larger than 16 GB, you have a 16 GB model.
