Thanks to our favourite tipster @evleaks we now have what we believe to be a first look at the new Kindle Fire interface as well at the next generation Kindle Fire that it’ll run on.

Earlier this weekend we wrote about the latest hardware leak from BGR which showed us what’s believed to be the next generation Kindle Fire HD. If the leaks are legitimate then we can expect the next gen Kindle Fires to keep the same large bezel that the Kindle Fires are known for, as well as an updated button layout.

In terms of UI it looks a little smoother with the option to have your “favourite” apps along the bottom instead of hidden away in a drawer. There’s no sign of any Google apps either so it doesn’t look like Amazon is going down the same route as the Nook HD. Either way it looks much cleaner and we can probably expect it to come to current generation Kindles too.

Amazon themselves have kept quite schtum on the case so as soon as they announce anything we’ll be on it.
