New 7″ Kobo Libra H2O Getting Launched Quickly

Kobo has introduced the upcoming launch of a brand new e book reader referred to as the Kobo Libra H2O and it appears like a cut price for the value, a lot in order that the Kindle Oasis might be in hassle.

The Kobo Libra H2O has a 7-inch 300 ppi E Ink display screen, and it has an asymmetrical design just like the Kobo Forma with the web page buttons on one facet and a sensor to rotate the show.

It has the identical actual display screen because the Kindle Oasis besides it’s $80 cheaper ($100 cheaper when you think about the price of eradicating Amazon’s annoying advertisements).

The Kobo Libra H2O has a retail value of simply $169.99 USD and it’ll get launched on September 17th. Kobo will begin accepting pre-orders on September 10th.

Because the title suggests, the Kobo Libra H2O is waterproof, with an IPX8 score. It has 8GB of cupboard space, Wi-Fi, and a 1200 mAh battery. It additionally has Kobo’s ComfortLight Professional to regulate frontlight colour temperature.

One factor that’s completely different than the Kobo Forma is it has an indented display screen, and it has a typical glass-backed E Ink display screen as a substitute of the extra sturdy plastic substrate on the Forma. In consequence, it weighs about the identical because the bigger Kobo Forma at 192 grams. In addition they moved the facility button to the again of the gadget as a substitute of getting it on the facet. And in contrast to the Forma, the Libra is accessible in each black and white colours.

I don’t know why they insist on including “H2O” to the title. It has a special display screen measurement and design than the previous Kobo Aura H2O, and so they don’t have that with the Forma and it’s waterproof. Any longer I’m simply going to name it the Kobo Libra.
