Onyx continues to slowly improve itseBooks. This time, last year's Onyx Boox Faust got a planned upgrade. So welcome to Onyx Boox Faust 2! We increased the screen resolution, replaced the backlight with a more modern one. And ... everything seems to be. This is where the changes end. As far as can be judged by the meager official characteristics, of course.
Screen. Classic electronic ink, E-Ink Carta, with Snow Field support and Moon Light 2 proprietary backlight. Capacitive sensor, 16 colors traditional for “ink”. The resolution is now 758 × 1024 (212 ppi), which, you see, is much nicer than the 600 × 800 of its predecessor.
There is no exact information on the iron filling. But, most likely, the same ancient Rockchip RK3128 chip is used as in the first Onyx Boox Faust. The chipset is old (2014) and quite rare. Apart from Onyx readers, it was used only in a few little-known tablets. 4 cores Cortex-A7, 40 nm process technology. By the standards of modern smartphones, the characteristics are ridiculous, but you don't need much to read books.
Memory "android" amount. 512 MP operative, 8 GB constant, there is support for memory cards. And by the way, yes. As an operating system, we have the good old Android 4.4 KitKat.
The battery is excellent, 3000 mAh. Even taking into account the backlight, this will last for a long time.
Of the additional features, we can only note the Wi-Fi module.
Judging by the official description, the bundle includes a “smart” cover-cover, but there is no charger - only a USB-lanyard. And what to stick it into, you have to come up with yourself.
Onyx Boox Faust 2 has already appeared on the store's websitePalmstore. However, while it is there in the status of "delivery expected". The price bites a little - ₽10,490 ($ 133). Honestly, I would like a little cheaper.
