mid-2015, Amazon has however introduced a new format in connection with the expanded typeface options stands. The speech is size- of the new KFX files.
This file format is, however, not eReaders from all Kindle apps support, which is why Amazon, depending on Firmware version of the terminal either the old or new format delivers.

However, one must mention here is that the ghosting effect depending on the device can be a not inconsiderable source of friction. The Kindle Android app is namely not optimized for use on E-Ink display, so sometimes image artifacts the previous page remain ghostly and may adversely affect the reading experience.
