Photo Announcement. Onyx Boox Note 4 - a ten-inch reader, now without a stylus

Listen, this is even somewhat logical.

Announced last year, the Onyx Boox Note 5 reader was a classic upgrade from last year's Onyx Boox Note 3 reader. Well, missed number four. Still, an unlucky number for China happens.

However, now, in the fall of 2022, the four have appeared. And - attention - the newly announced reader Onyx Boox Note 4 is a downgrade of last year's reader Onyx Boox Note 5.

I see exactly two differences between the "four" and the "five".

  • Increased battery capacity from 3700 mAh to 3700 mAh. Well, yes. �You can't call it a downgrade.
  • But this is more serious. Bitten off the stylus. The Note 5 came with a stylus. And the screen was covered with two touch layers - the usual capacitive for fingers and induction for the stylus. In Note 4, the stylus was removed from the kit. The additional touch layer was also removed. Here's your downgrade.

So. Before us is a large ten-inch reader. Great thing for reading pdf files and stuff like that.

Screen. E-Ink Mobius Carta, i.e. with a plastic backing, which means that such a screen is more difficult to break than a screen withstandard glass substrate. Electronic ink is the most common. 16 shades of gray.

10.3" (329 cm²) diagonal. High resolution - 1404x1872 (227 ppi). Moon Light 2 signature backlight with adjustable color temperature.

Hardware and software. Eleventh Android and unnamed octa-core chipset. The Onyx chipset brand is traditionally not disclosed. Most likely, this is Snapdragon 662 (a little less than two hundred thousand AnTuTu points on smartphone tablets). By the standards of e-books, the performance is more than sufficient.

Memory. 4 GB RAM, 64 GB storagebathhouse. There is no support for memory cards. But if necessary, you can connect external storage via USB-OTG.

Other. USB modern, Type-C. Dual band WiFi. There is Bluetooth 5.0 - in case you suddenly want to listen to sounds from the device (music, audio books, etc.). There are stereo speakers and a microphone. And even a fingerprint scanner.

The page Onyx Boox Note 4 has already appeared in the company's online store. In the presence of the device, however, not yet. But the price is already indicated - ₽39990 ($662). However, there has been no official announcement yet. So theoretically the price can beGu also change.

For comparison, Note 5 is currently on sale (one, two) in major chains for ₽59,990 ($993). Such a sickly surcharge for a stylus.
