Photo Announcement. Onyx Boox Tab 8 - an e-reader with an improved screen, which was called a tablet

Onyx introduced an e-reader called Boox Tab 8 in beautiful China. Indeed, why not call an e-book with an ink screen a tablet?..

We have a classic device with a 7.8" (188 cm²) screen. Standard resolution 1404x1872 (300 ppi), sensor, stylus support. Onyxes have a lot of devices with similar screens. Onyx Boox Nova Air, Onyx Boox Nova 3, Onyx Boox Edison, Onyx Boox Kon-Tiki 2.. .

According to the company, the Boox Tab 8 differs from its predecessors in that it has a better screen. So muchA percentage is more transparent, the backlight (with color temperature control) is a certain percentage more uniform. The sensor is sharper and faster. And so on.

About the iron stuffing, it is said that a certain eight-core Qualcomm with a frequency of 2 GHz works here as a chipset. Most likely, we are talking about Snapdragon 662 (about 200 thousand points in AnTuTu), but this is not accurate.

Suddenly a lot of memory. More than all the similar models listed above. 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. Plus there is support for memory cards.

Another surprise is the battery. Its capacity is as much as 5000 mAh. (U"ancestors" capacity fluctuates around 2000-3000 mAh). Why such generosity, it is not very clear. By the standards of an electronic ink device, this is really a lot. But, however, the weight was kept within the bounds of decency - only 264 grams.

Communication. Supports dual-band Wi-Fi. There is Bluetooth and Type-C.

In the pictures of the novelty, holes are clearly visible, similar to speaker grills and a microphone, but the specification does not say anything about either.

The Boox Tab 8 will cost ¥2,780 (₽25,100, $410) at launch. (Does the standard set include a stylus andcover, I did not understand).
