The Kickstart campaign for the Bigme Galy Gallery3 will commence on November 15, where Bigme will start taking orders for this color e-paper tablet.
Bigme has several digital paper tablets on the market already, including those with elementary color displays, so let’s look at what makes the Gallery
3 tablet different from the others.
It runs Android even if it is Android 11, features an 8-inch 1920 x 1440 resolution 300 ppi color resolution ACeP display, has 4G, and has a 4096 pressure level digitizer with three buttons that goes along with the Wacom screen.
A fingerprint reader, a 5MP front camera and 8MP rear camera, stereo speakers, and 4 mics also helps to sets it apart from many others.
It has more than 100 note making templates, which is a useful feature add on, and while I have not tested it myself, it has voice-to-text support for 31 languages with 98% accuracy.
The other important specs includes an octa-core 2.3 GHz A53 processor, 6GB RAM, and 128GB storage, with Wi-Fi 5, BT 5.0, a USB C port, and a 3000 mAh battery.
That may not sound like much of a battery, but since this is an e-paper tablet, the power consumption is lower than on normal tablet computers. It’s also pretty think, with a thickness of just 6.95mm.
The one thing that works against it is the $699 launch price. But that’s still within the typical range for most of these e-paper tablets with a color display.
Digital paper tablets are very popular at the moment, which is evident by Amazon’s admission into this segment with the Kindle Scribe on November 30th.
