Onyx BOOX Nova2

Despite the growing demand for devices with ever larger displays, Onyx BOOX Nova2 is in line with the previous models of the series, therefore it has compact dimensions and a Wacom pen for taking notes and writing freehand on the screen. The goal of the new ebook-reader is not to amaze for its aesthetic characteristics, but to provide users with a simple, extremely practical, feature-rich tool that can be used at any time and time of day. Its frames, in fact, still appear quite thick but there are numerous innovations regarding the hardware sector, which characterize a product already highly appreciated by customers around the world in previous versions.

With a touchscreen display (capacitive) e-Ink 7.8-inch HD Paper (1872 x 1404 pixels, 300 DPI), Onyx BOOX Nova2 is able to offer a darker and sharper text to allow users to read for many hours without fatigue the eyes. In addition, thanks to the CTM front lighting adjustable between cold and warm light on 32 levels, you can continue reading at any time of the day and even in the dark. Compared to 6 “ebook reader, you will be able to view 68% more text and read A5 size ebooks and PDFs in over 10 different formats (pdf, djvu, azw, azw3, doc, docm, docx, epub, fb2, fbz, html, mobi, odt, prc, rtf, sxw, trc, txt, chm), as well as images (jpg, png, bmp, tiff, cbr, cbz) and audio (wav and mp3).

The weight of 265 grams and the dimensions (196 x 137 x 7.7 mm) greatly facilitate its portability: it can be easily stored in a bag and supported with one hand while reading or taking notes. You can write, draw, underline text and annotate without any problem thanks to the Wacom pen sensitive to 4096 pressure levels and palm-rejection technology. As if that were not enough, the freehand written text can then be converted into an editable PNG file or text.

The 2.0GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon octa-core SoC (not yet specified, perhaps a Snapdragon 439 or Snapdragon 625?), Flanked by 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 32GB of storage space (eMMC), guarantees excellent performance even in multitasking while the battery from 3150 mAh manages to cover 7 weeks on standby. The Android 9.0 Pie operating system allows you to install many third-party applications and there are Bluetooth 4.1 to connect external audio devices (there are no integrated speakers) and dual-band WiFi (2.4GHz / 5GHz) to browse the Internet and download updates OTA. The power and back buttons are the only physical buttons and there is a USB Type-C port (with OTG support) for charging the battery and connecting flash drives and external SSDs up to 1TB.

Compared to the BOOX Nova Pro predecessor, which we reviewed a year ago, the new model boasts a more powerful processor (no longer Rockchip but Qualcomm), greater memory and longer autonomy, better connectivity, microphone, newer operating system and OTG support.

Onyx BOOX Nova2 can be purchased on Amazon USA or on the BOOX Shop at a price of 339.99 dollars, but we do not yet have information on availability in Italy. In the package, in addition to the ebook-reader, you will also find the Wacom pen, the USB-C cable for charging and data transfers, the screen protector film and a small paper guide
