Probably not. May be the same resolution as the Glo (1024×758). But with improved contrast.

But I hope they upped the resolution.
To get the same dpi as the Aura HD (264.71) on a 6 inch 4:3 screen the resolution should be:
Vertical: 1280 px
Horizontal: 960 px
That gives a dpi of 266.67.

If you want the slightly larger screen, keep your order. If it's not a deciding factor, it's probably best to cancel and wait for official specifications to come out.

Oh bugger, I *knew* this would happen! ;-)

Just bought an Aura two days ago. Harrumph.

Oh well, I like the bigger screen, anyway. Not the slippery plastic — that's a bit unpleasant after having had a Touch — but the screen's great.

The back also seems textured, ...guess that's because of people saying the Aura was too slippy.
Don't mind the look and logo of the back of the reader, but why don't they make it symmetrical? ie: the angled planes.

If U use cover for Aura slippery back isn't important. The screen is the most important in ereader

It looks like a blurry photo to me. I wouldn't trust it to conclude that the bezel-screen distance has been reduced.

I agree. I can almost make out an edge to the bezel making it look the same as we currently have, but the photo really is too blurry to tell with any certainty.

A textured back so that the idiotic shape of the backplate won't make you drop it as much as the slick plastic version on the Aura does (and using a cover on the Aura so you can grip the damned thing securely is a horrible thing to have to do - it makes it as heavy as a hardcover).

It may be a mock-up or a prototype.

If you look at the reflections, it would appear to be one continuous surface covering the screen and the bezel.

I disagree. There appears to be a darker spread past the bezel that looks like the IR sensor area. That looks to be an espresso color bezel, which is as shiny as the Aura's.
