BOOX V3.0 Firmware Main New Features on Max Lumi and Note Air
System-wide split-screen, layers, and more surprises.
As most students and teachers go back to school in September, this month ought to be the right time for new beginnings.
BOOX launches two new E Ink tablets with the front light and the open Android 10 OS: the 13.3’’ Max Lumi and the 10.3’’ Note Air. It also employed the up-to-date V3.0 firmware on these two devices, making them more fully-fledged as Android E Ink tablets.
