Photo Announcement. Onyx Boox Tab X - a thirteen-inch reader

Onyx has unveiled its next great reader called Onyx Boox Tab X. It can be considered an update of the Onyx Boox Max Lumi 2 reader, which was first released in October 2021. Seriously increased the capacity of the battery. Added some new "graphics processor with BOOX Super Refresh technology", which "ensures high speed redrawing and smooth movement of objects on the screen." Apparently, the fingerprint scanner has disappeared. And the "Back" button located under the screen, in which this scanner was integrated, is also not visible anywhere else.o.

The screen appears to be exactly the same as it was. Black and white electronic ink E-Ink Mobius Carta. Huge size - 13.3 "(slightly smaller than an A4 sheet of paper). Just what you need to read pdf documents. Moderate resolution - 1650x2200 (207 ppi). Moon Light 2 signature backlight with color control. Zest - two touch layers. Traditional capacitive (as in smartphones and tablets) and induction (Wacom) - for the stylus (the stylus comes with the reader).

Curious. As stated in the specification, the screen displays 16 shades of gray, but "up to 256 programsframe" ("up to 256 shades programmatically"). What this means, I find it difficult to say.

Iron. As usual, Onyx does not name the brand of the chipset used. Something from Qualcomm with eight cores and a frequency of 2 GHz. With a high degree of probability, this is the same as in Lumi 2, i.e. Qualcomm Snapdragon 662.

The amount of memory has not changed. 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. No memory card support.

Battery capacity has grown significantly - from 4300 mAh to 6300 mAh.

Other. USB modern, Type-C. Dual band WiFi. Bluetooth 5.0 - in case you suddenly want music from the last deviceeat. There is a speaker and a microphone.

The price for Russia has not yet been announced. In Europe, Onyx Boox Tab X will cost €949.99 (₽71900, $1020). In the USA - $879.99 (₽61900). In Britain - £879.99 (₽74600, $1060).


Oops. Onyx Boox Tab X has already appeared in the Russian store. ₽94990 ($1350).
