KA2 with an 8" screen, faster processor, bigger battery (2400mAh), Carta 1300, IR touch, and no buttons. I'd go for it.

Nope. Capacitive touch, flush screen. Makes for a much sleeker experience.

Unlikely that they’ll go back when we’ve had three devices with the current Libra form factor.

You'd rather have a sleek experience over maximum text clarity?

At Carta 1300 specs, I'm not going to be squinting at a capacitive touch screen. So in terms of the overall experience, yes.

I quite liked the experience I got with the Aura H2O. I don't see any reason not to have it again. Plus, I got a lot less fingerprints showing on screen with IR touch. IR gives the clearest screen possible for the screen type used.

I still use both the H2O and the Aura One. I suspect IR makes a critical difference with the H2O, given its 265 dpi. But I don't think we'd be giving up much acuity with a capacitive 300 dpi Carta 1300 screen.

IR was valuable for Pearl and also ereaders with no front light. The eink corp now even offer a slightly better than separate panels integrated capacitive touch. The IR touch is a bit lower resolution and "page sleep" mode uses more power (the LEDs). I can't see IR touch coming back. It was abandoned in 1980s for non-eink screens. Also IR touch needs a recessed screen (flush not possible) and exact location of PCB to bezel. Capacitive + eink only needs a larger bezel on edge with ribbon. IR touch needs at least an extra 3mm on each edge, so maybe an extra 8mm in one direction and more than an extra 8mm in the other direction that has ribbon because the IR LEDs or photo transistors can't be obscured by the ribbon.

I would appreciate a Libra 2E with flush screen without bezel, modern form factor like the PocketBook Era/Boox Page/Kindle Oasis 3 have, buttons and compact dimensions.

I guess it will be a new Libra.

OTOH Kobo should come up with a new Sage, because of its battery life and IMHO they certainly scared away some customers with this problem at the Sage.
