The Boyue Likebook Mimas will be available tomorrow in China and overseas a few weeks later. It is going to retail for around $450 and a few videos have just surfaced, giving us a first look on what this new large screen e-reader brings to the table.
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. You will be able to use Skype or Whatsapp or other chat options that rely on a microphone, since this model has one. But it does not have a camera.
