Xiaomi Mi Reader Pro Up For Pre-Order – $168, 7.8″ Screen

The Chinese gadget company Xiaomi  has just launched a crowdfunding campaign for their next ereader.

The crowdfunding site is in Chinese, with all the text embedded in images, so it is kinda ahrd to discern many details. But I do know the Mi Reader Pro features a 7.8″ Carta E-ink dispaly with color-changing frontlight. It’s powered by a quadcore CPU with 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.

Th graphics also suggest that the Mi Reader Pro can pair with a smartphone, and that it supports standard office formats. GSMArena reports that it runs Android Oreo 8.1 and comes with both Wifi and Bluetooth. You can even use voice search to find and open ebooks, although that is probably only available in Chinese.

The price is listed at 1099 CNY, or about $168 USD.

    I think it won’t be available outside China in the near future, as we viewed with its 6″ cousin.
