Rumors of New Fire TV announcement around the end of September

Ever since the FCC filings for what appear to be the next generation Fire TV emerged, I’ve heard from several unverified sources that we may see a new Amazon Fire TV announced near the end of September. You should consider this news entirely a rumor, since I haven’t been able to verify the information I’ve received. I normally wouldn’t post about rumors, but since it’s a slow Monday morning with little Fire TV related news, I figured shedding a little light on this rumor might stir up some more information my way.

All indication is that we’ll be seeing a new Fire TV soon, but we’re also expecting to hear about several new Amazon tablets soon. If the rumors of an Amazon announcement scheduled for the end of the month are true, it may be for the new tablets only, and not the new Fire TV. Time will tell.

    Can’t wait to see what Amazon has up its sleeve to counter nVidia Shield TV & Apple TV 4.

    I just bought one two months ago. Will it be obsolete now? Should I buy the new one too?

    I hope they include a game controller this time. Lets remove the one issue that has seen the limitation of game development on the Fire TV. We couldn’t even get a number of Ouya devs to port their games . As they saw the Fire TV as a TV box with no idea of how many people had a controller and indeed what kind of controller. Not having a controller included in the package severely restricts game development.
