As we had advanced a few days ago, Xiaomi has introduced its first electronic book reader. A new product that arrives under the name ” My Reader ” willing to compete more economically with the renowned Amazon Kindle.
Xiaomi Mi Reader is presented as a new eReader consisting of a body made of high strength ABS plastic and size of 159.2x116x8.3mm along with a weight of only 178 grams. In its upper part, we find a single physical power button while in its lower part it has a USB Type-C port.
On its front, there is a new electronic-ink screen with HD resolution and 221ppi which, together with its anti-dazzling treatment, offers an experience very similar to that of paper. In addition, so that we can read our favorite book under any lighting conditions, the new Xiaomi Mi Reader has 24-level LED lighting with a brightness uniformity of up to 90%.
Inside we find a powerful Allwinner B300 processor with 4 cores at 1.8GHz. In turn, it has 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage enough to read the heaviest books, whether they are text or numerous images such as comics and manga. As far as the battery is concerned, it has enough 1,800mAh to reach an autonomy of more than one month.
Its operating system is based on Android 8.1 Oreo and allows us to fully manage our library, as well as a fully customizable configuration of the font type and size. In addition, among features it allows you to adjust the contrast of the images in order to visualize the graphic novels with a better level of detail. It also has 2.4GHz WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1.
