BOOX unveiled a new workhorse in their ePaper tablet PC category today, which is the Boox Tab10C Pro. This is like a flagship model with the latest Kaleido3 display.
The intention behind it is to imitate paper through the screen as much as possible. So let’s start with the display. The BOOX Tab10C Pro has a 10.3-inch display with a screen resolution of 2480 x 1860, which features a black and white ppi of 300, and a color ppi of 150.
Color settings and adjustments for this Kaleido display will be available through BSR Color+. But the screen still supports a 4096 pressure level sensitive digitizer pen with wireless charging and 5 brushes.
It will launch for 4699 Chinese Yuan, and we’ll have to wait and see when it launches in the US. But it runs Android 12 upon shipping this month.
The processor is an octa-core 2.8 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with an AnTuTu benchmark score of 580K. And it even has 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
Other normal tablet specs includes dual mics, stereo speakers, and even a 16MP rear camera with LED which is called the Smart Scanner.
In addition to that, the Boox Tab10C Pro also features a fingerprint reader, dual-band Wi-Fi 5, BT 5.0, a 4600 mAh battery capacity, a microSD card slot with support for microSD cards up to 1TB, and a USB-C port.
And for even more productivity, BOOX has a keyboard for it with a pretty large trackpad.
The tablet is just 6.6mm thick and weighs 440 grams, and a few designers have said that BOOX have designs that are more Apple than even Apple itself has managed. But I don’t know if that’s the case with the Boox Tab10C Pro, and it doesn’t exactly spell Jony Ive. Having said that, the tablet looks very functional.
