More Onyx Boox Max 2 Videos


Onyx Boox Max 2 HDMI

A few new videos were recently uploaded to YouTube showing the 2nd gen Onyx Boox Max in action.

The first video shows the Max 2 playing videos, the second video shows an ebook app called Librera, and the third video shows an example of using the new HDMI monitor feature.

The Max 2 is the latest 13.3-inch E Ink ereader from Onyx.

It has the same screen as the Sony DPT-RP1, but these videos highlight just how different the two devices are.

The Sony supports PDF format only whereas the Max 2 is a lot more advanced with the open Android 6.0 OS and secondary monitor functions via HDMI.

The description for this first video notes that the Max is using A2 mode and dithering. Watching videos on E Ink is a jittery experience but it’s surprising how many different things the Max is capable of doing compared to other E Ink devices.

  1. I think the second video is displaying Librera Reader e-Paper Edition app – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=mobi.librera.book.reader&hl=en

  2. Does anyone know if the Onyx Boox Max 2 or the Carta support USB OTG for storage expansion?

    • Not yet, but we believe that the possibility could be enabled by a future firmware. USB OTG was recognized in the past as a possible battery drainer, and Onyx blocked the feature to prevent any chance of hardware damage.

      • Thanks for the reply. I want to add more storage for comics and maybe even text game videos. I know that Onyx did block OTG in the past. I hope they changed that because android should be open to configuring.

  3. That was a complete surprise – Nate found my videos, including one that I had not announced yet!

    I wish to add:

    — there is also a video in which I demonstrate another way (not HDMI) to make the Max2 work as a “monitor”, which is through desktop remote software: it is more flexible than HDMI, the desktop is transmitted through a network and your source computer could even be on the other side of the world. If you know TeamViewer… This is VNC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0k4HHOe56K8

    — The main reason why I am using these Onyx devices («surprising how many different things the Max is capable of doing compared to other E Ink devices») is for *text editing*, “office automation”. Attach a BlueTooth keyboard, seat in front of Kingsoft/WPS Office, type away. I have not prepared a video demonstration yet, but I will in the near future.

  4. It seems like Onyx boox note (10.3 inch) has been delayed. Does anyone know the reason for the delay? I have used SONY 13 inch reader; I want to give 10 inch version a try.
