BOOX Leaf2 is a 7-inch EInk tablet with GooglePlay that can use physical buttons. Since the Android application works, it can be used as a general-purpose e-book reader such as Kindle, Kobo, Honto, DMM and SonyReader. BOOX Leaf2 is lightweight (white 170g, black 185g) and thin (6mm), making it easy to carry around. You can enjoy reading e-books more easily than regular books and more conveniently with physical buttons.

■ Differences from conventional models
Older Leaf models were able to connect to cases with physical buttons via Pogo pins. From Leaf2, physical buttons are installed on the main body side instead of the case side. This allows you to turn pages using the physical buttons provided on the main unit. In addition, it is equipped with a TF slot (MicroSDXC) and supports expansion of storage capacity (up to 512GB).
About the difference between BOOX Leaf2 models
The Leaf2 features a 7-inch E Ink Carta touchscreen with a high resolution of 300 dpi, providing a paper-like reading experience while reducing eye strain by displaying text with clarity and contrast. . Leaf 2 differs not only in color differences such as black and white, but also in the presence or absence of cover glass. The black model is a flat panel because it has a cover glass. Therefore, it is easier to use the touch and gesture functions when using the app. On the other hand, the white model has a slight step between the panel and the bezel, but the contrast is higher because there is no cover glass, and the E Ink letters are displayed clearly and beautifully. If you use it as an e-book reader with a focus on physical buttons, we recommend the white model.

■ E-book readers need large storage capacity
As the image quality of e-books has improved, the file size of e-books has become very large. Leaf2 has 32GB as an application area, and it can be expanded to an SDXC compatible MicroSD card (up to 512GB) as a storage destination for e-book files. With this, anyone can pack all their e-book novels and comics.

■ Physical buttons are also necessary to read e-books
Sleek and ergonomic, Leaf2 will be the first BOOX tablet with built-in physical buttons.
Even if you have a large amount of e-book data, if you have to swipe to turn pages, your fingers will get tired quickly. Especially when reading your e-book comics all at once. BOOX Leaf2 has physical buttons on its body, so you can turn pages by simply pressing the button. Therefore, you can enjoy reading for a long time. In addition, since Leaf2 is not a store-specific device with limited usage, data from many e-book store apps can be consolidated on this one unit. [Image 7

■ Easy-to-read, easy-to-use BOOX Leaf2 that allows you to reach even the smallest details
Since Leaf2 is equipped with a G sensor, the orientation of the screen rotates in that direction when the main unit is tilted. Therefore, when using an e-book reader app, it is now possible to change to a two-page spread display simply by rotating the page horizontally. In the case of an actual book, the throat, which is the crease, cannot be displayed physically, but in the case of an e-book, it is possible to display it as a single picture. You can enjoy comics with great power. [Image 8

■ Dual tone front light
The Leaf2 has warm and cool front lights. You can continue reading even in dim environment or darkness.
