A purported photo of Amazon’s (AMZN) next-generation Kindle Fire tablet was published on Thursday by The Verge. The shape of the tablet pictured is a departure from the original model in terms of proportions, suggesting this may be the widely rumored 10-inch model. No other information can be ascertained from the image beyond the presence of a front-facing camera. BGR exclusively reported in June that Amazon is prepping at least two new Kindle Fire tablets — a 10-inch model and an updated 7-inch version — and the slates are said to feature new designs and metal cases. Amazon is holding a press conference next week to unveil its next-generation tablets.

UPDATE: The Verge is now saying the tablet pictured in above might be an old prototype and not a next-generation Kindle Fire.
