Onyx is getting ready to release a new 7.8-inch ebook reader called the Onyx Boox Nova. It turns out there will be two different versions of it.
The regular Nova has a frontlight and a capacitive touchscreen and the Nova Plus lacks the frontlight but it adds a Wacom touchscreen and stylus pen for writing notes directly on the screen like the larger Onyx Boox Note.
Aside from the Wacom touchscreen and frontlight, all the other specs are the same between the two, but the Nova Plus is expected to get released at a later date.
A video preview of the Boox Nova recently turned up on YouTube, but it didn’t reveal many details about the device.
Onyx recently updated their product page for the Boox Nova with a complete list of specs.
The page also reveals a new user interface that is designed to be simpler and more intuitive. I’d expect it to get rolled out to Onyx’s other Android 6.0 ereaders as well.
