I like my 7.8". The side bezels is good but the top and bottom really needs to be reduced

Super cool - Excited to hear more details whenever they are known!

It's always great to have anything new happening in the e-reader space.

Thanks for the correction. A bit weird since previous FCC filings have differentiated between an uSD card and an eMMC module though I should have paid more attention to the part #. SanDisk eMMC modules seem to have SDIN as the first 4 characters of the part number. OTOH, an uSD card is not designed to be soldered so pretty much needs a socket.

It is nice to see 16GB in any case also

Sort of makes me wonder if Audiobooks will be a focus/feature

I think soldering a micro-SD would combine the difficulty of changing out an EMMC with the lower performance and reliability of an SD card. It would be cool if e-readers used socketed EMMC like ODROID does.

Nate's article said it has 16gb of memory. I was thinking that if it's color you'd want more memory for the comics reading crowd.

It's great to hear about new Kobo launches.
Unfortunately, they don't sell it here in Brazil. I would love to see some competition to Amazon.

Depending on the size of the comic book file,. 14GB would give you room for quite a few 100MB comic files.

I'm guessing it's going to be a Kobo version of the Tolino Page 2 because it's using a 1,000 mAh battery. That would be a step down for a new Clara and (I'm guessing, I don't know) a color eInk reader would probably require more battery than a standard eInk screen. The 16 GBs seems kind of odd for an entry reader, however. Maybe Bluetooth for audio books?

Hypothetically speaking, just because there's a FCC filing doesn't necessarily mean it'll actually come out???

That said, I assume there's enough expense involved where they wouldn't file with the FCC unless they had strong plans to actually release the device?

And with the backing of a large company, I'd say it's fairly unlikely that they'll run out of money before releasing it, which seems to me like the only plausible reason to have a FCC filing for a device that never comes out.

They ran a similar 'FCC' article for a new Kobo device on Aug 23 last year. On September 4 Kobo announced the Libra. So it looks reliable and we could indeed have a Kobo announcement in a couple of weeks.

I extremely strongly suspect you're right.

I was just saying that it's not 100%.

Although in these COVID-19 days it might be a bit more than a couple of weeks.

Thank you, that's the real detail I was looking at.
