Xiaomi: New 7-inch e-reader presentedXiaomi is now offering a new e-reader that comes with a high-resolution E Ink panel and is also equipped with a backlight that can be finely adjusted. An intelligent refresh mode is designed to recognize text and photos.

As is well known, Xiaomi is a technology company that not only offers a wide range of smartphones at different prices, but also offers a wide variety of product categories. For example, Xiaomi also offers e-readers that utilize E Ink technology, although not always outside of China.

Xiaomi now has another e-reader on offer in its home market of China. This is based on an E Ink Carta 1200 display with a pixel density of 300 DPI, which should ensure high playback quality. The resolution is 1680 x 1240, as the panel measures seven inches diagonally. The intensity of the backlight can be adjusted in 32 levels and the color temperature can also be adapted to personal preferences.

Weighing just 166 grams, the system is equipped with a sensor to detect alignment. Navigation can be carried out not only via the touchscreen, but also via dedicated buttons, meaning that no awkward reaching around is necessary to turn the pages digitally. Regarding tech specs, the model is based on Android 11, while the RAM measures 2 GB and the internal storage 64 GB.

Connections to wireless networks are possible in both the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. Bluetooth 5.2 is also available. The 1200 mAh battery is said to last up to 40 hours on a single charge, while the magnetic housing provides an additional 1950 mAh battery. The new e-reader is now available in China at a price of around $200. Information on a global launch is not yet available.

I have been active as a journalist for over 10 years, most of it in the field of technology. I worked for Tom’s Hardware and ComputerBase, among others, and have been working for Notebookcheck since 2017. My current focus is particularly on mini PCs and single-board computers such as the Raspberry Pi – so in other words, compact systems with a lot of potential. In addition, I have a soft spot for all kinds of wearables, especially smartwatches. My main profession is as a laboratory engineer, which is why neither scientific contexts nor the interpretation of complex measurements are foreign to me.

Growing up in regional Australia, I first became acquainted with computers in my early teens after a broken leg from a football (soccer) match temporarily condemned me to a predominately indoor lifestyle. Soon afterwards I was building my own systems. Now I live in Germany, having moved here in 2014, where I study philosophy and anthropology. I am particularly fascinated by how computer technology has fundamentally and dramatically reshaped human culture, and how it continues to do so.
