July 28, 2020

PocketBook is excited to announce the launch of two long-awaited new products, which are capable of changing the view on the comfort of e-reading. Meet the PocketBook Color – Europe’s first color e-reader with E Ink Kaleido™ 6-inched screen, and the PocketBook Touch Lux 5 – the new generation of one of the world's most lightweight mainstream e-readers, now with SMARTlight technology.

PocketBook Color – the next page of e-reading is in color

The PocketBook Color introduces a brand-new level of e-reading – thanks to ePaper E Ink Print Color technology. Children's books with illustrations and comics, educational and professional literature are now more inspiring and informative on E Ink screen. The device is also equipped with Bluetooth and supports audio files.

Colors on E Ink screen

The new E Ink Kaleido™ screen can display 4096 colors while preserving all the unique properties of E Ink technology. In black and white mode, the screen has HD resolution with 300 dpi, which guarantees the sharp contrast of the e-page. The E Ink Kaleido™ screen offers optimal comfort and performance with the switched-on frontlight. Moreover, users can adjust color settings of each specific book, easily changing parameters such as contrast, brightness, gamma correction, and saturation.

Bluetooth and audio - everything for book listeners

The PocketBook Color supports 6 popular audio formats, which is good news for audiobook and music fans. With Bluetooth, it is possible to connect wireless headphones or listen to audiobooks through your car audio-system. The Text-to-Speech tool is another useful feature for voicing text files in one of 16 languages.

Reading pleasure “on the go”

Due to its compactness (161.3 × 108 × 8 mm) and lightness (only 160 g), the e-reader is ideal for those who cannot imagine their daily routine without reading. The device is conveniently sized to keep on hand, wherever you go: PocketBook Color fits easily in a school backpack, handbag, and even in a jacket pocket! Frontlight technology means you can read in any condition, regardless of lighting: in transport, in a cafe, and even in a tent, settling down for the night. The e-reader is comfortable to hold with one hand while simply turning the page with the touchscreen or the buttons on the front panel.
