ONYX BOOX KON-TIKI 2 is a device for reading electronic books with a larger screen and outstanding technical specifications. This E Reader has the newest E Ink Carta Plus screen of 7.8” with touch control and the MOON Light 2 system with a color temperature control. A powerful 8-core processor in combination with 3 GB of RAM provide high work speed even with difficult documents. Thanks to its enlarged screen, this model can be the perfect choice for those who often have to read either academic and technical or fiction works. The Kon-Tiki 2 is based on the Android 10 operating system which allows you to install third-party programs and makes the device more universal.
E Ink Carta Plus is the latest generation of screens made by"electronic paper" technology. Compared to the previous models, this screen has a higher definition and contrast. Pixel density of the screen is 300 ppi that is a record for this type of E Ink screens and corresponds to the high-quality paper printing. Reading on such screens is as comfortable as on regular paper pages.
SNOW Field is an operating mode of the screen, allowing to reduce the number of artifacts on the screen within partial refresh. If this function is on, full refresh of the screen is not needed.
The MOON Light 2 technology enables one to use the device in the dark or under poor lighting conditions. When this function is in use, soft luminescence of the screen comfortable for reading in dark rooms is being generated. It also has a color temperature control and, thanks to the use of Flicker-Free technology, the front-light system is perfectly smooth.
The latest researches have shown that blue light prevents the production of melatonin (daily rhythms regulator), which is necessary for a person to sleep. Therefore, after reading on a glowing screen of an ordinary tablet or smartphone, it is often difficult to fall asleep. MOON Light 2 allows you to adjust the brightness of cold and warm LED lights independently, choosing at will white light for reading during the daytime, and more yellow for reading before sleeping. The Flicker-Free technology completely eliminates shimmering of the LEDs used in this screen frontlight system. This is due to the use of a DC power supply.The Flicker-Free technology significantly reduces discomfort for sight and eye fatigue and decreases the chances of headache, caused by long use of the eReader.
The ONYX BOOX KON-TIKI 2 screen, increased up to 7.8 inches, displays 68% more information than similar 6" screens. At the same time, the device is compact enough for comfortable use during trips and travel.
The E Reader comes with a smart cover which not only provides effective protection of the screen, but when closed turns automatically the device to sleep mode.
Protective glass from the famous Japanese manufacturer ASAHI is located atop the E Ink screen and protects it from scratches and other damage. This new glass allows to avoid additional frames, so the screen is flush with the body of the device. This makes the e-book more comfortable and it looks more modern. In addition a special coating reduces the glare of the screen.
