The Onyx Boox Max 2 is getting released this month. A few videos have been uploaded to YouTube from people that have already gotten the device.
Like the previous Max Carta model, the 2nd gen Max has a 13.3-inch E Ink Carta screen with a resolution of 2200 x 1650. It’s a flexible plastic-based screen and there is no frontlight.
The Max 2 adds a number of hardware upgrades and it runs a newer version of Android.
Here’s the main list of changes with the Max 2 from the Max Carta:
- 1.6GHz quad-core processor.
- Adds a capacitive touchscreen for finger touch.
- Upgraded Wacom digitizer for more accurate and faster stylus touch.
- HDMI port added for display mirroring.
- 32GB of storage space with 2GB of RAM.
- Android 6.0 OS.
- No microSD card slot.
The second video below is a brief comparison between the Max Carta and Max 2. The Max 2 is faster with the quad-core processor and increased RAM, but not by much.
The Max 2 is up for pre-order from eReader Store. It’s priced at €671.34 and is expected to ship at the end of the month.
Also the 1st gen Max Carta is on sale at Amazon for $619, and there’s an 8% off discount coupon available as well for Prime members. The seller is new and only has a couple of reviews but seems to be legit.
