Bigme X6 13.3-inch Digital Note first look
Bigme has released a brand new 13.3-inch digital note taker and it’s very compelling. It comes with support for English, so it’s quite viable for a large international audience. It is the most powerful 13.3 on the market, with an octa-core processor, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. It will easily handle thousands of books and large PDF documents. It comes with a case and a stylus, although it is one of the most expensive electronic notes available, you can buy it from the Good e-Reader Store for $950.
The Bigme X6 features an E INK Carta HD e-paper display with a resolution of 2220×1650 with 207 PPI. The screen is flush with the bezel and protected by a layer of glass. The color scheme is a light gray, which blends very well into the gray screen. It has 36 white and amber LED lights, which is rare on a 13.3, so there is a front light and color temperature system.
The large 13.3 inch inky screen is comparable to the size of A4 paper. It has a wide enough field of view for office work and reading. It can perfectly display various types of documents with complex layouts, while reducing the frequency of frequent page turning.
Under the hood is a 2.3 GHz octacore processor, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. It is the most powerful e-note on the market and easily beats the Onyx Boox Max Lumi 2, as well as the second generation Fujitsu Quaderno A4. It runs Android 11 as its main operating system and supports English right out of the box. It doesn’t have an app store, but you can easily download your own apps or an alternative app market like Amazon.
The X6 also supports handwriting in more than a dozen common formats like PDF, EPUB, TXT, FB2, AZW3, etc. It’s easy to take notes and make annotations. For professional-level and complex documents with large layout and complex composition, X6 easily supports presentation of original versions in various formats, enjoying “authentic” reading enjoyment and higher efficiency. It is also equipped with Bigme’s exclusive smart magnetic remote control pen, whether it is handwriting or remote voice control, it can be retracted freely. For example, the functions of page turning, wake from sleep, front light switch and custom button can all be easily completed by the smart remote control pen. At the same time, you can also access voice remote control mode with one key, including new meeting minutes, hand notes, opening screenshots of PDF files, etc. It’s very useful. The smart remote pen can be directly attached to the leather case when not in use. Dimensions are 306.5 x 230 x 7.9 mm and weighs 676 g or 1.49 LBS
This electronic note has a “dual-microphone voice array” and text-to-speech capability. Bigme claims that it will perform real-time transcription of 27 different dialects and over 20 different languages with an accuracy rate of 98%. It will automatically translate books from one language to another.
Inside the retail packaging is a white USB-C cable, a micro USB cable for charging the stylus, a warranty, and a quick start guide. It also comes with 2 spare nibs, a nib removal tool and a stylus. The pen has a pressure sensitivity of 4,096 degrees, which means the lighter or harder you press, the thicker/thinner the lines will be. The top of the pen is detachable, with a USB port, you can connect a USB cable to your MAC/PC and charge it. The cap is magnetic, so it is easy to remove. The design of the pen is gray, it has a power button to turn on or off, which is battery saving. It also has a back, forward and eraser button on the sides. I think the stylus has a very interesting design.
