Indeed. I don't need a new 6" Kobo as I think the Glo HD is pretty spiffy as it is, but I'd love a viable (hi-res, light) 5" reader.

That's a safe bet. It fits with the usual timing for Kobo's releases. I'd expect an official announcement either this week or next

Glo HD is no longer available though. So I'm guessing it'll be a 6" screen.

The Aura One was released in August. The H2O2 was released in May.

I would not just to any conclusions.

I'm selfish; I was talking about what I'd like and I have no want for a new 6" Kobo, since I'm entirely happy with my Glo HD. I'd love, however, a truly pocket-size reader with current specs. I've got a Mini, but it's a dinosaur.

The large exit/close button and the text and icon sizes on the screenshot at https://fccid.io/NOIKBN249/Label/Label-Location-3802576 means it sure looks like a 5" screen.

I'd probably go for it if it was a 5" screen as I have 3 Kobo Glo HDs, leaves me with 2 backups just in case they never again make a infrared reader.

I just hope they change the name, or everytime I read I'll be thinking of Clarabell the Clown from the Howdy Doody Show.

Announcement from Italian site – translated via Google. (Basically just supposition.)

Quote:
Kobo Clara HD will have 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi n, a 1500 mAh battery (like Aura HD and H2O), and a ceramic antenna. Difficult to understand the dimensions of his panel; from the nomenclature, and from the battery capacity, it should be a 6 inches and not a 6.8 or 7.8, but we have no certainties.

In 2017, these days, Kobo announced the new edition of Aura H2O, almost a year after its big hit: 7.8-inch Aura One - still the best device for large-format digital reading. The company has accustomed us to innovations (impermeability, adjustable light temperature, wire screen - all technologies introduced before the Amazon Kindle rivals) and has acquired the Tolino ecosystem a few months ago.

Kobo Clara HD will have a different screen than usual? At the last CES 2018 we saw something interesting at the E-Ink stand. Maybe it will be that famous 5-inch (Kobo Pika) that has been spoken for years? Or the "Clara" in the name will be the Spanish of our "clear"? Fortunately we should not remain in doubt for a long time.
https://hardware.hdblog.it/2018/03/3...-hd-anteprima/

I guess we just have to wait an see. Does anyone know what the reference to "our clear" is referring to? (EDIT: Never mind. I see the Latin meaning of "clara" is bright or clear.)

Could "Clara" (clear) be hinting at a ClearInk display?

EDIT: Never mind. It says right on the announcement "Eink Technology." Looks like I still have the talent for getting it wrong.
