Xiaomi is launching the Ink Case Smart Electronic Paper, which is a new digital note taking device. This 10.3 inch device has an E INK Mobius screen with a resolution of 1404 × 1872. It has a touchscreen layer and also WACOM. It comes with an electromagnetic stylus with support for 4096 pressure levels and a refresh rate of up to 360 times per second. The algorithm inside is able to recognize handwritten text and convert it into electronic text. This is a feature that only a small handful of products in this category have.
Underneath the hood is an unknown processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It is powered by a 3,800 mAh battery and is running Android 8.1, which is one of the first E ink products to have a modern operating system. This product is available to purchase for around $480 USD from the Good e-Reader Store, otherwise it’s not really available outside China.
