Kindle Oasis Color Comparison, Champagne Gold vs Graphite Gray

Kindle Oasis Color Comparison

Amazon released a champagne gold version of the Kindle Oasis 2 a couple of days ago on March 22nd.

It’s hard to judge the color from the few photoshopped images at Amazon, so I wanted to see it in person and compare it with the graphite gray version that was released initially.

Aside from the color difference, the gold Oasis is pretty much exactly the same as the gray model.

The only difference with the champagne gold version is that it’s only available in the 32GB option, at least that’s how it is at launch.

Presently only the gray one is available with 8GB or with cellular, except all the gray ones are sold out at the moment, with an expected ship date 5 to 7 weeks away—that’s odd.

I put together a quick video showing the two Kindle colors side-by-side for a closer look. The new champagne gold one is more on the champagne side than gold. Amazon calls the gray color graphite.

The entry-level Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite are both available in two colors, so it’s not surprising to see Amazon add another color option to their premium Kindle as well.

Which color do you like best?

  1. Oasis turned out to be so popular that it is no longer sold to countries that do not have their version of the Amazon store. That’s why I can not order an Oasis in Poland anymore, although until recently it could have been done from the Italian Amazon 🙁

  2. Thank you. At first I had buyers remorse for I wanted gold but the gold is not as great as I expected. I think I like my graphite better. I would LOVE a rose gold color. Next time they release a new model I am going to be smart and wait 6 months before buying and then see what my options are. What are you going to do with two Oasis? LOL

    • I’ll just get rid of the gold one. I thought I’d like it better but after seeing them together in person I like the gray color better. The gold color is more subtle than I expected.

    • I had the opposite reaction. I like the gold better, but as Nathan pointed out, you can’t see it if it’s in the case, so I have good looking cases lol. I’m definitely not buying the new color, it just would have been nice to have the choice back in December.

  3. Got a chance to visit the new Amazon Books location in Georgetown yesterday…I will keep the graphite. Good to see options though.
