The Hong Kong Electronics Fair is in full swing and there are some new videos that showcase the Onyx Boox Poke and the Onyx Boox Nova in action. These two devices have excellent hardware specs and will be released later this year.
The Onyx Boox Poke will have a six inch E-Ink Carta display with a resolution of 1072×1448 with 300 PPI. Underneath the hood is a 1.2 GHZ quad core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, 2500 mAh battery, USB-C and Android 6.0.
The Onyx Nova features a 7.8 E-Ink Carta HD screen with a resolution of 1872×1404 and 300PPI. Underneath the hood is a 1.6GHZ quad core processor, which is the same one that the Onyx Boox Note employs. There is 32GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, USB-C, 2800 mAh battery and Android 6.0. You will be able to read in the dark via the frontlit display. This device does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack or a speaker, instead you will have to connect up a pair of headphones via Bluetooth 4.0. It will also have Google Play, so you will be able to install your favorite apps.
