BOOX Releases a new 7.8" E Ink Tablet Nova2

When BOOX released Nova Pro in January 2019, it quickly became the favorite of a lot of BOOX users due to its portability. After over a year, BOOX is finally launching Nova2, the second generation of Nova Pro. Lightweight, thin, handful screen size, Nova2 is a perfect on-the-go companion for reading ebooks and taking notes. Nova2 will be available in the shop from 26th March.


Nova2 retains the compact design of Nova Pro. It still weighs around 265g, although the battery capacity has increased to 3150mAh from 2800mAh. Like Nova Pro, Nova2 features a 7.8-inch high-resolution 300ppi E-Ink display, which is by far the highest resolution of E-Ink screens available in the market. It has no glare and is readable directly in the sunlight. Users can read on it hours without eye fatigue.

Powerful CPU and large internal storage

The Qualcomm Octa-core 2.0 GHz processor of BOOX Nova2 ensures a remarkable level of power and performance. The chip increases the refresh speed of the E Ink screen by 10% and reduces the power consumption by 65% when WiFi is on, compared to its predecessor. Nova2’s battery can last weeks, not days. The 3GB RAM and 32GB storage of Nova2 allow users to carry thousands of ebooks and audio titles around. It supports USB OTG ( On-The-Go), which means Nova2 can be attached to external USB flash drives for even more storage. The users never need to worry about running out of storage for their ebooks, notes, songs, and audibles.

WiFi and Bluetooth

Nova2 employs dual-band 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz WiFi, which guarantees faster and more stable connection and transmission. Bluetooth 4.1 allows users to connect Nova2 with external Bluetooth supported devices, such as BT earphones, speakers, mice, and keyboards. These functions help to maximize the usability of Nova2.


Android 9.0 OS provides Nova2 with an extra layer of security. Users would not be worried about being hacked or being infected by malicious viruses. The OS ensures better compatibility with third-party applications. Users can install a variety of third-party applications, such as Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Evernote, news, Todoist, Trello, Microsoft Word, Dropbox, Google Drive, for reading books and news, studying and working.


Nova2 supports both finger touch and stylus touch. The 4096-level-pressure-sensitivity stylus responds to the lightest touch, and gives users superior control over note-taking, drawing and creating. It just makes you feel like writing on the paper without any latency. Aside from black and white colors, the native note-taking application on Nova2 also offers different shades of gray, green, red, and blue colors. The Note app provides a high ability for editing. You can convert the handwriting to editable PNG formats or typed text. You can also type directly on the screen. The palm rejection feature lets you rest your wrist on the screen during writing without interference. You can easily manage all your notes with ease. All notes can be exported to local storage and shared through QR code.

From software V2.3 which will be released soon, BOOX Note APP will include a new feature of syncing all written notes to BOOX Cloud. Users can check and manage all their notes through BOOX Assistant APP, PC, and other BOOX devices.
