Good e-Reader has finally received the long awaited Boyue Likebook Mimas and have conducted an extensive unboxing video. This is the device with the English firmware that has taken a few months to develop and it is now available to be shipped from the Good e-Reader Store.
One of the interesting things about the retail packaging is that it is all white, just like the e-reader. The carrying case packaging is also white, and ditto with the USB cable. The design of the e-reader is excellent and it has manual page turn buttons for people who like the tectonic feel of this sort of thing. It also comes with a stylus to take advantage of the note taking functionality of the WACM screen.
The Boyue Likebook Mimas features a 10.3 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 1872×1404. You will be able to read in the dark at night via the front-lit display and it also has a color temperature system. Instead of being black like the 7.8 Mars, the Mimas will have a white chassis.
Underneath the hood is a octa-core 1.5ghz processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It will have an SD card capable of 128GB of expandable storage. It will be powered by a 4700 mAh battery and have USB-C for charging and transferring of data. The Mimas also has audio functionality via the two speakers on the back, a 3.5mm headphone jack and Bluetooth support for wireless headphones.
