When it comes to dedicated ebook readers with E Ink screens, like Kindles, Kobos, and Nooks, upgrades tend to come much less frequently than with other types of gadgets.
Most of the ereaders from the companies mentioned above have been out for a few years now, so even by those standards we are well overdue for an influx of new reading devices in 2021.
Some companies never slow down, like Onyx and Pocketbook—they seem to release new models every few months, but it’s been a really quiet past couple of years from Amazon, Kobo, and Barnes and Noble.
Here’s a breakdown of all the currently available models from those three companies and the date each model was released:
Kindle – This model was released in April 2019. It was nice to see Amazon finally add a frontlight to the entry-level model but it still has the lowest resolution screen of any ebook reader on the market. In fact it has the same 800 x 600 resolution as the very first Kindle that was released in 2007. I think it’s time for an upgrade to 212ppi.
Kindle Paperwhite – The Paperwhite 4 was released in November 2018. It took Amazon over 3 years to update the Paperwhite 3 so if things stay on that pace this model might not get upgraded for another year, even though lots of people would love to have a warm frontlight option on a 6-inch Kindle.
Kindle Oasis – The Kindle Oasis 3 was released in July 2019 so it’s the newest Kindle in the lineup. But the design is exactly the same as the Oasis 2 that was released in October 2017. The contoured design doesn’t really make any sense now considering they discontinued the half-back covers that were meant to make the back the same level. Why not come out with a new design that doesn’t wobble when you set it on a flat surface?
Nook Glowlight 3 – The 6-inch Nook dates back to November 2017. B&N used to release a new 6-inch model every 2 years but that hasn’t happened lately.
Nook Glowlight Plus – The larger Nook was released in May 2019. Could Barnes and Noble release a color version in 2021? Would that be enough to get people interested in Nooks once again? That could be interesting.
Kobo Nia – Released in July 2020, the Kobo Nia is the newest model from Kobo, but I still don’t understand the point of it because there isn’t anything “new” about it. All they did was take the previous Kobo Aura and put it inside a new case and then renamed it.
Kobo Clara HD – Released in June 2018, the Clara HD is only $20 more than the Nia and it has a better frontlight and a better screen, proving to be the clearly better option even though it’s older.
Kobo Libra – This 7-inch Kobo model was released in October 2019 so it’s safe to assume it’s going to be around for a while still.
Kobo Forma – Released in October 2018, the Forma is Kobo’s largest and most expensive model. It has an 8-inch flexible screen that still not a single other company is using so what other upgrades could they bring?
It’s interesting to see how long some of these models have been on the market without any changes.
Now with color E Ink getting better and larger ereaders from Onyx becoming more popular, there is clearly room for growth in the dedicated ereader market with more options than before, but will any of these companies look to make a move or will they just stick with the same models for another year?
Which models would you like to see upgraded in 2021?
Jay Vansickle says
Concerning the Oasis… I don’t think the contour loses it’s value for the lack of the magnetic cases. I have a case that just covers the back…but, keeps the contour, and love it…since it doesn’t have that slick/cold metallic feel now. That is definitely something that they could change…the material…or adding a thin rubber layer.
Do you think they’ll go larger? I know a lot of people want a larger Kindle again.
They definitely need to start adding USB-C…and a freaking Wallpaper that uses whatever book your on, would be awesome….and, LONG OVER DUE.
I also wouldn’t mind an updated UI (not just to change it though…something functional)
I know you’re kind of “over” Kindle….. But, I think they do their One thing very well, so why rock the boat? Just keep doing that one thing better and better.
Don’t get me wrong, I do really like the Oasis too, but the contour doesn’t do anything for me. The Kobo Libra and Forma have a similar design but with a flat back, and after using those, I just don’t feel like the contour adds anything and it doesn’t make it more comfortable to hold. If anything it makes it less comfortable. Without the magnetic cover the concept no longer really makes any sense. Why not make the back flat to increase the size of the battery since battery life seems to be the number one complaint against the Oasis.
I think the weight being closer to the hold hand makes it more comfortable for me, but maybe I’ve just bought into the marketing. I love the Oasis. Only wish the screen was as contrasty as Voyage.
Cassandra Kamleiter says
I honestly wish all tablets were made the way the oasis is. Ergonomic af!
Provided that all have the same contrast as Voyage……
Maybe there isn´t much in upgrades in these devices as they are waiting for color to be the next gimmick to get people to upgrade. For dedicated ereaders there´s only so much you can do with them unless you start adding more expensive capabilities like note taking and drawing. These devices probably have peaked and now just waiting for color to revitalize the market. I don´t think color will really do much when it come to reading majority of text based books. Small screens aren´t the ideal for reading graphic based material, even if color was added to it. It´s doable, but if your reading is composed of mostly graphic novels and manga, bigger screen make more sense. On reason Kindle sells very well is because they have a reasonable price for a dedicated ereader. Trusting your comments, it seems that Amazon isn´t interested to exánd beyond the comfy spot it has carved for itself.
I get that actual “upgrades” are few and far between, but that hasn’t stopped companies from releasing new models in the past with minor improvements or changes. It’s rare to see the same model on the shelf for 3 years or more, and several are headed in that direction this year. I think people tend to lose interest in these types of products if they stay the same for too long. New models boost sales even when they don’t really change much.
My biggest gripe is the lack of larger models. Most people haven’t had the luxury of reading on a 10-inch E Ink screen, but I have and I think it’s great and these companies are missing the mark by not offering any. A lot of older folks love to read but their eyesight isn’t the greatest. They shouldn’t have to settle for a 6″ or 7″ screen, especially if they are mostly reading at home. I saw a picture the other day with someone using a large font size on a Kindle Oasis and a full sentence couldn’t even fit on the screen. I could never stand reading like that, having to page forward every 5 seconds. That would take all the fun out of reading. Larger screens are also better for other types of content like PDFs and comics and magazines. There are a number of ways they could make ereaders more widely appealing instead of just boxing them into a market designed for consuming ebooks.
Would you be o.k. with a 10 inch kindle basic?
I wouldn’t be fine with a 10-inch 167ppi screen, no, but if they used the standard 10.3-inch screen with 227ppi and put it in a basic casing with a frontlight like the entry-level model I’d be cool with that. But that scenario is never going to happen. If they ever do release a larger model they’ll try to make it flashy to justify the high price, like they did with the Kindle Oasis.
When I come to think about my e-ink usage patterns I notice two distinct streams: Text based reading on small device (Oasis 2) and technical reading of static formats with annotation along with note taking (Boox Note2). Since not all Kindle capabilities are available in my region I expect mainly technical changes: full waterproofing (I like to read immersed in hot bath 😉 and on the beach) along with wireless charging (zero hole design if possible). In that scenario, color display is not something that will be key reason for new Kindle.
As far as Onyx is concerned I am sure that we will see flood of new slightly improved devices which actually does not tempt me to catch up. But, if they add better typing capabilities (i.e. better keyboard cover maybe something like Brydge), color and waterproofing I could replace Note2 before it is obsolete.
Yes, the new technology called the On-Cell Touch e-Paper module may come into play next year???? Maybe people just wait a little bit longer to see the result coming out of this technology.
Kindle– what to change: obviously the resolution is just too low and the frontlight is not uniform at all.
PW4– ditch the plastic glossy screen and go either back to matte or do glass. Also this guy needs to be lighter and a touch smaller.
Kobo Forma– seriously needs an overall to give it a good uniform light.
Kobo Clara HD– not a fan of the chunky plastic and overly small side bezels. Thinks this needs an overall to look more aesthetically pleasing and be more comfortable to hold.
I think all those models are old in the tooth and have problems that need to be addressed. If these two companies could at least release one updated model this year that would be good. My choices would be the PW4 and the Forma as they are the oldest and have the most egregious problems of the respective lineups.
Sorry to contradic you but I don’t have any problems with the uniformity of the front lighting in the Kindle basic. I’m sure the other kindle models have no problems either since they have more light sources. My kindle basic has a uniform and even lighting. Pretty much all the reviews I have seen also don’t complain about it either.
Forgot to mention that the ‘low’ resolution hasn’t been an issue for me either. Even when reading with the smallest font. Now, reading graphic novels is doable on it, I wouldn’t doubt it is a slightly better experience on the other models. But for text reading the basic does just fine.
When I reviewed the entry-level Kindle I was actually surprised by how good the screen looked despite the low resolution. But then I look at the Kindle Voyage’s screen and see how much better it is and wonder how things have regressed so much. Sure, TVs with 720p screens are perfectly usable, but after you get used to a TV with a 4k screen that’s only slightly more expensive it makes you wonder why 720p TVs are still even being made.
As an entry level model to get you hooked into it. But for text reading the low res works fine. Obviously there is a market for people who for some reason or another don´t want or have the money to buy a more expensive model. It fills a need rather than force the public to pay for more than they can or are willing. Isn´t better to get people on board with eink devices any way you can rather than price them out? If you are all enthusiastic to promoting the greatness of eink, this is a good thing. I don´t think Amazon is cheating anyone with the Kindle basic model at the price point that it offers it nor does it make any claims that it can´t deliver.
That is a perfect comparison since 720p tvs where all the rage when Kindles were 167 ppi and now even entry level tvs are 4k, my phone is 1440p and the entry level Kindle is still sold with that crummy resolution.
I agree that it inexplicably looks pretty good, much better than the previous basic models (I guess it is the Carta screen and frontlight and not the resolution), but c’mon enough is enough.
Especially since Kobo’s entry level reader has been 212 ppi FOR YEARS.
Look more carefully. There is flashlighting at the bottom. The PW and the Oasis don’t suffer from this. You might not have noticed, but if you look for it and see it, you can’t unsee it.
You personally not noticing it is an indication that you don’t have a critical eye which you should be thankful for, but that doesn’t mean that the problem doesn’t exist.
Sure, that fact that you have to go looking for it tells you that it isn´t an issue. Yes, I can see the four light sources, WHEN I hold it at a steep angle looking down on the device, an angle you don´t use for reading. But when looking at it normally and as intended, you don´t notice it, unless you force your eyes to see it. I think you are being a little dramatic about it, if I don´t have a critical eye. Glad to hear that the other models you don´t see it when you go out of your way to look for it. Yes, the kobo has slightly higher resolution, but it is also slightly higher priced. Is that higher price worth the little increase of resolution when just looking to read mostly text books? It wouldn´t for me. I would want more features. Form What I can tell, the Kindle Basic offers more functionality at its rock bottom price compared to the Kobo lowest priced model. For what you end up paying for the Kobo, might as well get the paper white at a higher resolution with waterproofing. At its price point, the Kindle Basic offers the most for the buck. As I said before, a key factor to consider between the Kindle brand and the Kobo is the ease of Overdrive, if cost is not an issue. For me in Mexico, overdrive is completely useless. I use all the other features of my Kindle Basic. This device works great for my situation. Your kobo most likely works better for you based on your needs. This is the same argument as to which gaming platform is better, Xbox or PS. It comes down to not the hardware as much as to which best serves your entertainment needs. Getting a PS makes more sense if all your friends play PS, so you can join in the fun. Same goes for the xbox.. I just wish I didn´t have to feel that I had to defend the merits of the Kindle Basic, or any Kindle. It serves my specific needs. Every device is different because each model fulfills different needs. Don´t go out of your way to justify purchasing your specific device by putting down the kindle or those who love using Kindles. I just don´t get how people make certain claims about the device that I personally do not experience. Then to question me by saying that I just don´t have a critical eye is sad. You love your device. Great. I love mine. No need to insult or be negative. This blog is about the exciting things that are being done with eink tech. I love hearing how people use their devices. I can learn from others and maybe in the future purchase one based on the personal account of others. But attacking people for their preference of device is not a way to convince anyone. This is what got me upset in the past. I really enjoy this webpage as it generally shares the exciting aspects of the eink industry. And I look forward to reading about the various devices, new and old. Expressing wishes for features based on personal needs. I don´t want to come to a place where I feel attacked for loving my Kindle. I don´t want others to feel as if I´m attacking them for their choices. I hope I don´t come through that way. I really do appreciate what Nathan is doing here and hope it continues to be a place of excitement and not one of negativity.
The Kobo is actually $10 cheaper than the basic Kindle, which is $109 without ads. You can’t compare the price of an ad-supported model to one without ads.
I actually own the basic Kindle. I’m a nut that loves to collect all the ereaders. The Kobo Nia is also not a masterpiece. It is painfully slow in comparison to the basic Kindle. And it also has flashlighting (just not QUITE as bad).
btw your Kindle is not just competing against the Nia, it is also competing against used or refurbished Voyages and Paperwhite 3’s at lower price points.
Please stop fanboying and just think about it.
Dear Tired and Nathan,
I think a part of the problem in our back and forth is that we are dealing with a global market. Meaning that I live in Mexico so I do not have the same availability of products here as you do in the USA or Canada. My reference to the pricing of the kobo and Kindle is based on what is available here. For some unknown reason Amazon doesn´t offer the varied options of kindles as are available in the USA. They don´t offer units with ads. They don´t offer sales through Woot as there is no Woot in Mexico. They don´t even offer different colored Paperwhites. There is only one Oasis model, the 8 GB with silver color. Any used devices that are offered are more expensive than purchasing a new 10th gen device as they are shipped from the USA. Making purchasing used devices pointless. Same goes for the Kobo brand. The Kindle Basic is much cheaper than the basic Kobo. So, this may be part of the problem in our cordial discussions. As far as value of each device, from my perspective here in Mexico, the Kindle offers more value for me personally than the Kobo. This is looking beyond just the hardware specs. I am talking about the complete package of hardware, online and software support. I have tried going on to the Kobo website and found it not as user friendly and not as supported as the Amazon website. Having a superior hardware may be fine, but if the ecosystem that supports the device is not as good, then the user experience would suffer. Here in Mexico I have the impression that the Kindle offers a better user experience than the Kobo. Insulting me because my experience is different from yours will not change the situation.. Regardless of all that, I honestly do not see the flashlighting effect that you are claiming to be a factor. Not with my device at least. Maybe you got a defective model. I don´t have to unsee it cuz it simply is not there. I´m not saying that it doesn´t exist, I´m saying that it is hardly noticeable unless you are hunting it down on purpose and desire to see it and make it an affliction that keeps you from enjoying the device. There is nothing to think about. It may be true for older versions of the Kindle. But I just don´t see the problem you are claiming with my 10th gen device. I see more complaints about the Kobo readers with leaking lights from the sides and green lighting than complaints of the Kindle screen. Not to mention inconsistency problems in quality control of the Kobo seems to be a bigger issue than with the Kindle. But if the Kindle´s flashlighting is such an affliction to your critical eyes that keep you from sleeping at night, allow me to help you out by gladly giving it a home where I will be able to use it. Particularly in the classroom where I can give students access to reading material in English, which is difficult and costly to get a hold of here. This invitation is open to everyone who is also so afflicted by their Kindle´s “deficiencies”. Heck, I´m open to adopting Kobos too. It´s all good. Being able to increase the availability of reading material in the classroom is always welcomed, flashlighting or not.
Good points. Things vary a lot between different markets. Don’t worry about the frontlight. Some people are more sensitive to imperfections than others. It seems that most people could care less. Plus frontlights are just simply inconsistent. I have one entry-level Kindle with an obvious bright spot along the bottom and another without it so it just depends.
I wonder if it would be of interest to have people share about their different experiences about what is offered in their own countries? Why do companies have different market offerings?
I’d like an “upgrade” on the Nook Glowlight 3 back to the old B&N Nook system, where sideloaded books could be added or subtracted from shelves/collections with no problem. Currently, sideloaded books in my GL3 are deleted from shelves/collections if I add or delete a book to the GL3. Turning the NOOK GlowLight 3 off and then on generally results in only about 6 sideloaded books being deleted from collections- the same ones.
B&N’s site informs us “The most current version of the NOOK GlowLight 3 software is Version 5.0.5.” My Nook GlowLight 3 informs me that it is using version 22.214.171.124 software. That doesn’t give me much confidence in B&N, as I’d surmise that 126.96.36.199 is more current than 5.0.5., given how software nomenclature goes.
I’m waiting to hear news about the Kobo “N604” that was shown on the FCC site a few months ago. I hope it is a successor to Forma, which seems most likely (since it has 32GB storage and BT), but I wouldn’t be mad if it were a completely new device or a new Clara (or new Mini, but that is a pipe dream, I know, I know…).
I just hope it is NOT color e-ink, because then I wont be buying. I have watched some videos on Pocketbook Color, Inkpad Color, Poke 2 Color and Nova Color — it is cool tech, but the fact that color really adds nothing when it comes to reading text (which is what I’m doing on my reader 99% of the time) and actually makes the text look worse (due to the CFA), I’ll stick to BW-readers for the time being.
More exciting than Kaleido, is the TCL NxtPaper and the NCVM LCD it has. But thus far, it has been crickets on that front (besides the announcement video and one hands on video on YouTube, where you can see a prototype). It should be out in April, if TCL’s promise holds.
If the NxtPaper delivers at least equally sufficient contrast etc to the RLCD that was seen on Hisense Q5, I think it will be much more ideal large screen reader than anything e-ink could ever produce and I think I’ll buy one.

I gather you are looking at the marketing photos and not the videos of those displays in action. Very grey and murky!
“Very grey and murky!”
Oh well, so is Kaleido… “pick your poison” type of situation for those who wish to have tablet-sized screen without backlight, I suppose. 🙁
I am curious which videos are you referring to? I haven’t been able to find much on the NxtPaper and to me, RLCD looks adequate enough (from the videos I’ve seen, such as the Goodereader “review” and a more in-depth look at a channel called Robot Kid where the reviewer uses it as a monitor). Yes, it doesn’t look fantastic, but it doesn’t look horrific to me either.
I still wouldn’t recommend RLCD, since NxtPaper is just around the corner. And of course, it will be officially available in Europe, so there will be Play store preinstalled and what appears to be fairly close to stock Android ROM (compared to the chinese Android rom of the Q5 that seems to have quite a lot of preistalled bloatware and some strange software quirks).
I checked the prototype video (on “hxos plus” channel) and Keynote video of the NxtPaper again and compared to the RLCD, the whites seem little clearer, yellowish, but brighter (although it is hard to tell for sure, since both videos are clearly being filmed in a very brightly lit rooms) and I re-checked the RLCD videos as well. It is certainly grayer than I remembered, but since there is no ghosting, it seems alright to me (Goodereader video shows an ebook view briefly, which especially looked fine and responsive to me, Robot Kid shows Firefox browser with a long article on it, which also looked fine to me). I imagine it will look slightly better than what Goodereader showed, if you can sideload Koreader, or any such 3rd party reader software on the device, which allows increasing the font contrast (this is what the Robot Kid fellow did with a Terminal theme that increases the contrast). But certainly, far from ideal solution.
I also watched the Nova 3 Color video by MyDeepGuide and to me, NxtPaper seem better from my perspective (not to mention, it is cheaper too, by over 100€, so that is something to consider as well).
The most glaring issue with NxtPaper I see when comparing to Kaleido is the…well, the glare, it appears the surface of the screen is very “mirror-like” in its reflectiveness compared to a typical e-ink screen which is matte, but it doesn’t appear that much worse than your normal tablet in that respect. Annoying, but likely not a dealbreaker to me personally, assuming the screen otherwise performs amicably.
TL;DR: No, I’m not just looking at marketing material, but also at videos of the displays in action. Whether one finds it sufficient or not, I’d say it depends on your priorities. All of the technologies in question are far from perfect, but it seems NxtPaper might be the one with least amount of compromises thus far (but we won’t know that for sure, until reviewers get their hands on the tech).
Lastly, as far as the contrast goes, black and white e-ink is absolutely the best choice for epubs, of course (Robot Kid showed the RLCD next to a Kindle and the difference can not be ignored). But for large pdf textbooks, I could personally see myself getting used to the NxtPaper or even the RLCD.
I’m with you, Axel, on the desire for a new Kobo Mini. I would pay $100 for an up-to-date Mini, with light and a little more sensitivity.
Me too. I thought I was the only one who wanted a mini. Years ago when I was about to purchase my first paperwhite (in 2013 I think?) I remember seeing the kobo mini and debated whether or not to get it. I’m so mad I didn’t! From what I’ve read, minis are not what everyone wants though so I doubt we’ll ever see a new one. *sigh*
Steve H. says
I am in the unihandle camp…Oasis, Forma and BOOX Note Air form. It has been reported that Kobo has a new sku with 32gigs coming soon. If it is an improved screen Forma(and hopefully larger) I may get it.
A larger Kindle might become a possibility.
Kobo Forma user here.
Actually I don’t need much in the way of technical improvements – though any display developments that could increase contrast further will always be appreciated. Actually, the one thing I would like is a metal shell for the reader rather than the nasty dark-grey fingerprint-attracting plastic Kobo likes to use – something like the anodised aluminium Sony used to use on their readers.
Oh and investing in build quality and quality control would be good. Kobos are great readers, but they sometimes feel a bit thrown together. Fingers crossed, my current one hasn’t had a problem.
I used to think an even larger reader would be nice, but I’ve been using the Remarkable 2 for reading PDFs and whilst the display is fantastic and being able to see a page of A4 text at just about actual size is a life-saver, it isn’t quite as comfortable as a smaller device. Though maybe I could be convinced to try a 10″…
Maybe a refresh of the Oasis is on the way?
1. It is unavailable on the US and all european Amazon sites.
2. On the european Amazon sites, they announced the device to be in stock on March 13th. Some days before that they slipped the date to March 19th.
3. On the US store, it says: “We don’t know WHEN OR IF this item will be back in stock.”
4. The latest software update that addresses undisclsed bugs and security may be a sign to prepare for a new device.
5. Taking into account the days between releases of previous Oasis, we are now right on time for a new version. Launch dates from Wikipedia:
April 27, 2016 – Launch of first Oasis
October 31, 2017 – Oasis 2: 1y 6m
July 24, 2019 – Oasis 3: 1y 9m
Today – 1y 8m
Maybe these points all by themselves mean nothing, but when all of them are added can be a sign that something new is coming?
All versions are showing up as in stock now on Amazon US.
Hmmm, maybe the link I was using wasn’t the best.
I did a new search and they are indeed available.
It happens. They do weird things with Kindles being backordered all the time. It messes with me sometimes too.
What about the new e ink carta 1250 ?
I would really welcome an update of the Nook Glowlight Plus. However, I don’t care about a color version. What I need to see is a bold font option. It would be my perfect device.
I like the warm light, the size of the screen, and the page-turning buttons on both sides.
Are you talking about the stupid metal one or the newer 8 inch model? Because the newer one has a bold font option. Thanks Nook for using the same name on completely different models!
I think what Nook needs is a software update that makes it as fast and versatile as the original Simple Touch. Seriously why are modern Nooks SOOO SLOOOOWWWW in comparison to their older models??
About the not so-new 8-inch model. It does not allow to adjust for boldness. It has only thee options: Regular, Thin, and Thick. The thick one does not work for me.
My Kindle has a scale for boldness.
If they have released an update that I have missed, the Nook does not have a true bold option.
Retired reader says
Senior but avid reader here. Guess I am a minority in so many ways as I enjoy checking out from the public library ebooks ( so many books so little time!) only to discover Amazon has extremely limited sales to public libraries of ebooks/audio books because Amazon wants $$ and individuals to purchase/clutter home with books. Nope, android user in all electronics; yes Prime member; not interested Kindle services/products. Additionally, desire to replace my Glowlight of 3 yrs. probably with Kobo easy use public library but purchase to discover in a few months better version or on sale? Don’t waste $$ as retired and EVERYTHING costs more yearly especially life’s necessities. Monthly hear NOOK to be discontinued… So what should this baby boomer do ?
I just read an article that says B&N is starting to advertise their Nooks in store again…sounds like they might make a comeback? I also was thinking about getting a Kobo but I think I’ll wait a few more months to see if any of the ereaders are getting new models, as most are a couple years old. Crossing my fingers that I’m not waiting for nothing.
I currently have a paperwhite, and two of my absolute favorite kindle voyage (got the 2nd voyage as a backup just in case, it’s my favorite device). I certainly hope that Amazon will eventually will make a larger screen voyage, with extra storage, and access to my audible library. At least a girl can dream, because I dislike the oasis and will never have one. Have started looking at other companies devices in case one of them decide to make a reader for us voyage fans, since Amazon has abandoned us for years.
OMG Teresa, so happy not to be the only one with two perfectly refurbed Kindle Voyagers (sic)! It’s my fav reader and so light compared to my larger Kobo Aura ONE which no longer recharges ;(
K Voyage: BEST reader I’ve ever seen :))
