According to an official announcement, the Xiaomi Duokan Electronic Paper Book Pro will be available for pre-sale simultaneously at Xiaomi Mall/Xiaomi Youpin/JD.com/Tmall. It will be available on December 15th with the price of 1,099 yuan ($165). The electronic paper book is not yet on the shelves, and you can check it out tomorrow.
Although books still have a long way to go, electronic book readers or eReaders continue to take center stage. Although Amazon and its Amazon Kindle are the most famous, Xiaomi is back ready to become the best quality / price option.
We learned that Xiaomi launched its first electronic paper book product last year. It uses the mainstream 6-inch E-Ink electronic ink screen and 212 PPI. Moreover, it supports 24-level reading lights. In terms of storage, the electronic paper book includes 16GB storage, and 1GB memory. It uses an Allwinner 4-core 1.8GHz CPU. The paper book features a built-in 1800mAh battery. On the other hand, it runs Android 8.1 system. The weight is 178 grams and the price is 599 yuan ($90).
More reading resources
In addition, Xiaomi Duokan e-book supports more reading resources, Xiaomi/WeChat account login, Baidu cloud disk login and download, and multiple formats.
The specific specifications of the Xiaomi Mi Electronic Paper Book Pro are still unknown. Though, we can see from the poster that the color of the body is unified to black. The frame is further narrowed, and the screen may be larger. Despite the lack of information, the new Xiaomi Mi Electronic Paper Book Pro seems to have more advanced features than its first version.
In addition, there is a function button similar to the Home button under the Xiaomi Mi Kan E-paper Pro. Beyond that, the Xiaomi Mi Electronic Paper Book Pro will be able to read our stored books through the firm’s own voice assistant.
