Xiaomi is now preparing to stand out against Amazon's famous ebook reader Kindle. The company introduced a new e-book reader called Mi Reader. The ebook reader has 24 different display brightness settings, HD display and of course electronic ink technology. Xiaomi Mi Reader, which stands out with its affordable price, can shake Kinde's throne.

New generation e-book reader: Xiaomi Mi Reader

The e-book reader with quad-core processor supports many different file types. The device has a special interface which can provide 90% monotone brightness. This interface was built on Android 8.1 Oreo. The battery has a capacity of 1,800 mAh and is charged via the USB Type-C port.


The prices of the new e-book reader currently correspond to 471 TL abroad with pre-order discount. On the other hand, when the determined sales figures are reached, the price will rise to 486 TL. It is not yet known when the company's Mi Reader will be available worldwide, but it will be available on December 18 in the Chinese marketplace of Xiaomi.

Xiaomi Mi Reader specifications and features

The device supports file formats such as TXT, EPUB, PDF, DOC. It is also possible to use WPS and Microsoft Office applications via the e-book reader. The Mi Reader's 6-inch display is also ideal for this.


The 1.800 mAh battery on the Mi Reader comes with a 5V / 1.5 A charger. The charger's USB Type-C is designed with two different colors. The dark back of the device also enhances grip with the material used.


The main processor of the e-book reader is the Allwinner B300 at 1.8 GHz. With 1 GB of RAM, the Mi Reader has 16 GB of internal memory. The size of the e-book reader working with the Android 8.1 Oreo was 159.2 x 116 x 8.3 mm and its total weight was 178 grams.


The pioneer of the e-book industry was Amazon, which is also the book sales platform. Kindle, produced by the American firm, was the first e-book reader to become a brand for many. Although there are many brands in the industry today, the Kindle remains popular. The Xiaomi Mi Reader seems to be the last competitor to challenge the Kindle.

Xiaomi Mi Reader price and release date

Xiaomi will launch a fundraiser on November 20. It will start from ¥83 at the beginning, but then the price list will grow to $85. The novelty will compete with Amazon Kindle e-books.
