If you’re looking for a front-lit A4-size E Ink device, the good news is BOOX launches Max Lumi, the most powerful 13.3’’ E Ink tablet with front light.
Max Lumi: The Most Powerful 13.3″ E Ink Tablet with Front Light
Max Lumi is the first 13.3’’ E Ink tablet with front light and color temperature modulation (CTM). As BOOX’s flagship model, it has the most powerful hardware and more recent Android 10 system. It uses an E Ink Mobius flexible screen with a resolution of 2200×1650 with 207 DPI.
As an A4-size E Ink device, Max Lumi is perfect for reading A4-size materials. It allows users to make annotations and take hand-written notes on various file formats, including PDFs and PPT presentations. In addition to its incredibly powerful reading tools, the large device is also made for drawing and note-taking with the 4096-level pressure-sensitive stylus. As it has the front light, users can use it at any time.
From the spec-wise, Max Lumi blows all its competitors away. Its upgraded heterogeneous octa-core CPU can allocate power intelligently. Which makes it 30% more responsive than the previous Max3 model (which is also a beast), rendering a smooth and snappy system. And it’s 10% more battery-efficient. The 4300mAh battery can last up to 6 weeks on standby mode. QC4.0 can charge ⅔ of the power in 2 hours.
Max Lumi provides large storage of 4GB LPDDR4X RAM+64GB UFS2.1 ROM. And it adopts advanced solutions to multiply the data transfer speed. LPDDR4X is almost two times faster than LPDDR3. UFS2.1 is also four times quicker than the eMMC solution.
In addition to the upgraded processor and large storage, Max Lumi has a mic, two speakers, a USB Type-C port, and an HDMI port. It supports BT5.0, WiFi 2.4G+5G, OTG, fingerprint recognition, and both analog and digital audio. But such a large, versatile E Ink tablet with the front light also brings a weight of 590 and a thickness of 7.1mm.
Android 10 and V3.0 Firmware
The chosen operating system for both BOOX Max Lumi is Android 10, the highest Android version on an E Ink product. Android 10 makes these it more secure, smoother, and more compatible with third-party applications.
Max Lumi also runs the up-to-date BOOX V3.0 Firmware. Besides installing third-party apps, users can split the screen to run two apps simultaneously, which is a leap forward for the E Ink tablet. A new built-in application, Onyx Subscription, is added. It allows the pushed web article to remain the original format rather than creates ePub files. Also, the second monitor feature for Max Lumi is specially optimized.
BOOX E Ink tablets provide the most powerful tools to help users read and annotate ebooks and files. The new firmware makes the built-in NeoReader even more helpful in learning foreign languages. It integrates the third-party dictionary apps, so users can choose to look up words in other apps. A box will then pop up above the NeoReader to offer definitions without forcing users to leave the current task.
V3.0 Firmware also largely optimizes note-taking and drawing experiences.
Layers and new pens, the pencil and the marker, are introduced into the built-in Notes app. Users can create up to five layers on each page. The pencil brush is pressure sensitive and perfectly mimics the real pencil style.
The new firmware streamlines the way of organizing notes. Users can open the other notepad without exiting the current note. They can also move a specific page forward and backward quickly, copy and paste it to a different notepad without leaving the current one.
The BOOX Max Lumi employ powerful hardware and runs the open Android 10 OS and V3.0 Firmware. It provides many functions that are first seen on an E Ink tablet and help users become more productive with multitasking features.
BOOX Max Lumi usually is at $879.99. On September 21–28, you can get the early bird price at the BOOX Shop to save $20. Max Lumi products will soon be sold out once they hit the store shelves, so act fast while stocks last.
