Last year, Xiaomi announced its very first ebook reader called the MiReader. The product is exclusive to China but it may be getting a global release soon under the name MI Ebook Reader.
The MI Ebook Reader has been spotted on the database of the Bluetooth SIG. The device received its Bluetooth certification on July 23 and the certificate shows it will connect via Bluetooth 5.0.
Lately, Xiaomi has been launching outside China more of its non-smartphone products. Just a few weeks ago, it launched the Mi Portable Electric Air Compressor in India. The portable inflator launched in China more than a year ago before getting a global release. Its Mi Notebook PCs have also made their way out of China. So it is no surprise that it wants to launch its Ebook reader outside China.
The MiReader has a 6-inch e-Ink screen with a PPI of 221. There is also a 24-level adjustable front-lit LED, so owners can read in the dark. It is powered by an Allwinner processor paired with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The e-book reader supports several file formats including epub, PDF, DOC, XLS, TXT, and PDF. Users can also sideload their own content onto the device.
We can’t say how soon the MI Ebook Reader will launch but we sure will update you when we have more details.
