Bigme has scored another ‘first’ again- this time being the first 7.8″ color eink ereader/tablet. It runs on Android 8.1 and is powered by an Octa-core 1.82Ghz processor. It has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
It uses USB-C for connecting to devices and charge its 2000 mAh battery. Its dimensions are 190.8 x 135.8 x 6.3mm and the device weighs about 220g. It includes a pen that can be used for note-taking and drawing that also functions as a page turner.
It is mainly a Chinese device and sold only in China for now- on JD – but they do ship internationally (you have to use Google Translate to get around). It is priced at 3499 Yuan (which is about $540). That’s quite expensive for a 7.8″ ereader considering most previous models are priced at around 300$ and they have better specs at that too- but they don’t have color. Let’s hope the upcoming alternatives from Onyx Boox, Boyue Likebook etc. which I hope they are working on and will release soon (no confirmation, just speculating) will be priced cheaper than that.
This is all the information about the Bigme S3 Color that I’ve gathered so far. I’ll update this page when I get more. For quicker updates and discussions join the Eink Lovers FB Group.
