XIAOMI Mi Reader Pro 7.8 Inch Ebook

Xiaomi continues its foray into the world of reading lights with a new model featuring a large 7.8-inch screen: the Xiaomi Mi Reader Pro. About two years ago, the Chinese company Xiaomi launched different models of fairly classic 6-inch reading lights.

While it is possible to order these devices from Asian sites, Xiaomi seems to be concentrating its distribution on Asia and mainly China. It seems that the first tests are satisfactory for the company since they have just announced the Xiaomi Mi Reader Pro. A “large format” reader with a 7.8-inch electronic ink screen.

For the moment, the launch is taking place through a participatory fundraising campaign on a Chinese site. The rate is quite interesting with a price set at around $170. Adding taxes has therefore arrived at a price of about 200 euros which places this reading light as a direct competitor of the Vivlio InkPad 3 which is already available from us.

Here are the technical specifications of the Xiaomi Mi Reader Pro:

  • 7.8-inch Carta E Ink touch screen display
  • Front lighting with blue light filter
  • Quad-core processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB of storage
  • Android 8.1 system

According to the site, the reader could propose an interesting innovation: a voice assistant should allow you to search in the bookstore, its library or on the Internet. Another particularity will be the compatibility with file formats that we are rarely used to see supported by a reader: Excel, Power point and Word. The reader will also be compatible with PDF, TXT and EPUB formats.

Finally an interesting Xiaomi reader? Contrary to the brand’s previous models, Xiaomi seems to have better thought out its concept to offer a product that stands out from its competitors.

In addition to the large screen, the voice command functions and format support of the Microsoft Office suite could make this reader as useful for reading as it is for productivity.

However, the integrated library will be Chinese and it remains to be seen whether the reader’s interface can be switched to English. Moreover, this is probably the main obstacle for Xiaomi. If the company wants to market a reading light in France, it will have to integrate a digital library in its reading light.

But, after all, Xiaomi is a big company and if it wants to, it will surely have the resources to expand globally in the digital reading sector. Once again, I don’t invite you to buy it because of the problems of this reader which is not adapted to the French-speaking market (language of the interface and bookshop).
