iReader Smart 4 PRO e-reader and e-note
The iReader Smart 4 Pro is a dedicated e-note and e-reader. It has physical page turn buttons, that are similar to the Kindle Oasis in form and function. Press them down to quickly turn the page of your favorite ebook. Freehand draw, take notes or edit/view PDF files.
The Smart 4 Pro e-note comes with a 10.3-inch E-Ink display with a resolution of 1404×1872 with 227 PPI resolution. The tablet is designed with a new process that reduces the thickness of the front panel by 30%, making the screen display more transparent. At the same time, the paper-sensitive soft light screen can reduce 97% of interfering light and simulate the damping feeling when writing on paper, bringing a more realistic writing feel. The screen is flush with the bezel and protected by a layer of glass. The colour scheme around the bezel is black and has a strip of blue on the back of the device and the left side. One of the most compelling aspects of this product is the manual page turn buttons. Quickly turn the pages of an ebook when reading; the page turn buttons can also be mapped to do different things, such as full page refreshes or acting as a home button. There are dozens of mappable aspects, which makes it very unique. This device has a front-lit display with 28 levels of warm and cold lights; you can read at night or in low-light conditions.
Under the hood lies a Arm Cortex A55 2.0 GHz Quad-core processor with 3GB of memory and 64GB of onboard storage. There is a USB-C port, WIFI, and Bluetooth 5.0. You can connect Bluetooth headphones and listen to audiobooks, music or podcasts. There are two stereo speakers that you can use instead of Bluetooth. There is, of course, WIFI, which provides access to the internet browser and also the bookstore. It is powered by a 4000mAh large battery with up to 60 days battery life on standby. The dimensions are 226.4 by 193.4 by 6.3mm, weighing 379G.
One of the big selling points is the real-time translation features as well. Also, the integrated dual silicon microphone lets you record proceedings during meetings or a classroom lecture. You will also have the option to mark critical points of the recordings for easy comprehension later. Screen mirroring feature allows for real-time sharing of screens for enhanced workspace efficiency.
The main reason why you would want to buy this is to take notes. It all starts with the stylus. It comes bundled with one of the best on the market, the X-Pen 3 stylus, which supports 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and a sampling rate of 360 times per second. The stylus utilizes a spine body design making it comfortable to hold. The stylus also has a physical page-turning key that flips the pages with a single click. The pen can magnetically attach itself to the side of the e-note; this might cut down on misplacing it and looking under every nook and cranny of your home.
This unit is similar to the iReader Smart 4. That model had 1GB of RAM, a dual core processor. The Smart 4 Pro has a quad-core processor, 3G of RAM and sporting a more refined user interface with better touch input on the pen.
