Onyx Boox Note X3 Pro, Note X3 Youth Edition E Ink Tablets Launched in China

Much along expected lines, Onyx Boox has launched the Note X3 Pro and the Note X3 Youth Edition e-note devices which it had earlier announced it would launch on April 23. Both happen to be an extension of the Note X3 e-note device that Boox had launched back in fall 2023. Read on to find out more about the devices.

Onyx Boox Note X3 Pro

The Onyx Boox Note X3 Pro comes with a 10.3-inch E Ink Carta 1200 display having 300 PPI resolution. Boox said the new Note X3 Pro happens to be the first 10.3-inch device from the company to sport a 300 PPI display. The display benefits from a front light feature having 64 levels of warm and cold light settings. This ensures you have the most optimum reading experience in any ambient light conditions.

Under the hood lies a 2.4Ghz Qualcomm octa-core processor coupled with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of ROM, the latter being expandable to up to 1 TB. Powering the device is a 3700 mAh battery which should last a couple of days though this depends a lot on the way the device is put to use. The e-note supports 2.4G and 5G Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity. There is also a USB-C port for charging and data transfers.

The tablet measures 235 x 183 x 5.5 mm and weighs 395 grams. It sports a highly sensitive microphone and runs Android 12. It features a full metal anodized metal frame while the rear sports a 3D solid leather finish. The Note X3 Pro is however meant for sale exclusively in China and is available via JingDong.

Onyx Boox Note X3 Youth Edition

The Note X3 Youth Edition happens to be a scaled down version and comes with slightly downgraded specs. There is the same 10.3-inch E Ink display but a lower 227 PPI resolution. Boox however stated it offers a more natural reading experience as there is no front light layer, something that has led to the display being more transparent. Boox said the transparency has been enhanced to 92. Also, with the display now being closer to the eyes, you have the impression of the text being on top, akin to what you have with printer paper.

Coming to the rest of the specs, the tablet features a 2.4GHz Qualcomm octa-core processor along with 3 GB memory and 32 GB storage, the latter being expandable to up to 1 TB. Power is supplied from a 4100 mAh battery which gets recharged via a Type-C port. The tablet runs Android 12 with support for third party apps as well. Connectivity options include 2.4G and 5G Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0.

Accompanying the e-note is an electromagnetic pen having 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity. It measures 227 x 186.5 x 6.7 mm and weighs 435 grams. As with the X3 Pro, the Youth Edition model is also exclusive to China and isn’t available to buy internationally.
