When Onyx announced their new color ereader earlier this week, all they gave us was a single graphic. I can now report that the new device will be using the same hardware as the Poke2, which was also announced this week.
Furthermore, I can show you the Poke2 Color in action.
The Onyx Boox Poke2 (and I assume the Poke2 Color) features a 6″ Carta E-ink display with a capacitive touchscreen and a color-changing frontlight. Screen resolution for the grayscale screen is 1072 x 1448, or 300 PPI.
The Poke2 Color’s screen is capable of displaying 4096 colors at 212 PPI, or 16 shades of gray, at 300 PPI.
Edit: Color screen resolution is unknown. Some sources say this screen tech can display color at 212 PPI, while Pocketbook says the screens going into their device have a color resolution of 100 PPI. (I trust Pocketbook.)
The Poke2 runs Android 9.0 on a 2GHz octa-core CPU with 2GB RAM. It also has 32 GB storage, Wifi, and Bluetooth. Battery capacity is 1.5Ah, which can be recharged through the micro-USB port.
The Poke2 is available now, while the Poke2 Color is scheduled to ship later this year (according to Pocketbook).
