The Clara 2E has a better screen, higher resolution, waterproofing, USB-C, a faster processor (did I read that somewhere? Or am I wrong?) and (over the Aura) the orange lighting for night time.

none of the above matters one jot to me especially waterproofing. hence the words why would (i) want to settle for 16GB/less.

Because everything else about the Clara 2E is an improvement over the Aura. And I liked the Aura.

But a better screen is objectively better, I could tell a difference between my Aura's Pearl(?) screen and my Clara's Carta one. Once I had the Clara I just couldn't go back to the Aura.

Funny enough, I can still read on my Nook ST with Glowlight. I think in addition to the Pearl screen, whatever Kobo did to make the Aura flush really messed with the clarity/sharpness.

Did I say higher resolution? Whoops! I know the Clara and the Clara 2 both have 300ppi screens.

It does have the Carta 1200 screen, so it's probably "better." Apparently there's a noticeable improvement. What little I saw of a 1200 screen on a Kindle Paperwhite (6.8") at Best Buy didn't look that much different than the Oasis screen, but it wasn't a real test.

According to this video the new kobo device could also be called Kobo Clara HD 2. (Ignore the backgrounds: they do not show the new device though)

I had given up on Kobo releasing a waterproof 6" reader. Great news, although I just ordered a used Libre H2O so I won't be ordering the new Kobo for awhile. Maybe next year....I've been wanting a water resistant 6" device.

I'm kinda pleased it doesn't have buttons. I couldn't go back to no buttons now, so this one not having any removes any temptation

Useless video (IMHO). It's showing snippets of other Kobo devices too much of the time.

I'm sticking with Kobo Clara HD 2E until we know officially. I'm basing it on the store adverts for the covers.

Which ultimately quote this thread or other articles that quote this thread as the source (except for that badereader blog that never quotes anything and just rips off things from here, lol).

You and me both. Currently I'm switching between my Clara and a 2015 Nook Glowlight Plus when I go to the pool, because of the waterproofing.

I'm also using a Simple Touch with Glowlight because of the page turn buttons. But that's neither here nor there.
