If it's not offered on the main Kindle/Fire page, then no. :(

FWIW - the new 32GB HD 8 plus is one sale for $80 and it uses USB-C to charge.  I think the plain HD 8 model is $60.  You could do a trade-in for your old one and get a little somthing, plus they usually offer a percent discount on a new one.  They both have SD card slots so you can supplement the base memory.

Amazon's Fire Comparison table starts with the 7" at the low end, so I think the 6" was a temporary thing.

They stopped making them, sadly.  I really like mine (I ended up with 2 thanks to a good sale) but battery life does stink these days.  Of course I bought them in 2014 and 2015 so that's probably a factor.  LOL
