A few days back, Xiaomi teased the launch of their first-ever eBook Reader launch for today. As per the schedule, the new product called MiReader is now official for the initial crowdfunding price of 579 Yuan(~$82) with better specifications than the competition. It will retail for 599 Yuan(~$85) after the termination of the crowdfunding period.
The all-new Xiaomi eBook reader surprisingly runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with support for a number of contents including books, comics, documents and other readable materials. It supports almost all kind of extensions such as EPUB, PDF, DOC, TXT and plenty others. Talking about the elephant in the room, the MiReader comes equipped with a 6-inch HD E-ink display with 212 PPI at the front. Also, it features LED light to provide 24 levels of brightness covering 90% of the screen.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Allwinner B300 quad-core processor coupled with 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM which we feel is more than enough for an eBook Reader. Interestingly, it features a USB Type-C port to charge the non-removable 1,800mAh battery at the rate of 5V / 1.5A. The Reader measures 159.2 x 116 x 8.3mm in size and weighs 178 grams with a textured back for a better grip.
