It is confirmed: the new ebook-reader Kobo will have a 7.8 inch display and premium specifications, such as to be able to compete even with high-end models of the Kindle and Kindle Voyage likes Oasis Amazon.
Kobo Aura ONE will display e-Ink Paper 7.8 inch (1872 x 1404 pixels, 300 PPI) touch and frontlight (lit), and larger than any e-reader Amazon now in circulation but with the same pixel density. In essence, the readability of the text will be the same if not higher than that of a Kindle. The device should measure 195 x 138.5 x 6.9 mm at a weight of 225 grams and a waterproof frame with an 802.11n WiFi module and a built-in micro USB.
Inside it seems confirmed the presence of RAM and 8GB of storage 512MB probably not be expanded because the shop does not mention support for microSD cards. Autonomy should touch a month, even though they are not yet released details on the battery. The new design seems assured: the back cover of the device has a new finish that increases the grip and does not retain fingerprints, as well as a clear blue power button on the back that therefore leaves the edges or the top. The shop had also indicated a sale price of 229 euro, but can be considered an approximation given the times.
According to the latest rumors, Kobo Aura One will be presented at an event dedicated to mid-August and will be shown to the public in September in Berlin during IFA 2016, before being brought to market in a matter of days.
