$150 InkPalm Plus eReader features RK3566 SoC, 5.84-inch display

Xiaomi Moaan InkPalm Plus is a 5.84-inch eReader powered by the same Rockchip RK3566 processor found in Pine64 PineNote 10.3-inch Linux eReader, and currently selling for 999 CNY, or about $150 US, on JD.com after a 100 CNY discount.

The device looks more like a smartphone than an eReader with its relatively small display, but there must be demand for this type of hardware since it succeeds the earlier InkPlam 5 eReader with Allwinner B300 quad-core Cortex-A7 SoC, plus an even smaller 5.2-inch display.

Xiaomi Moaan InkPalm Plus runs Android 11 with support for the installation of third-party apps, and ships with a USB-C cable for charging and a user manual. It’s only available in China right now, but like the earlier InkPalm 5, it should become available on Aliexpress and other Chinese resellers in a few weeks or months. The language is likely to be set to Chinese by default, but it may be possible to change the language to English through an adb command.
