Hmm... well, given that it *might* be called a Libra, can we hope for it to be released during that Zodiac sign's dates: September 23 – October 23?

Almost guaranteed. The announce is likely early next month with availability in early October.

Can you tell us something more or is it all secret?

But it's funny that the thread started wondering if there was a new Kobo and there wasn't but now, after a few weeks, we have a news that there will be.

I don't know anything that isn't in these threads. The comment on the announcement/release is based on Kobo past behaviour.

Earlier in the thread I predicted no device this year. Partly because there hadn't been an FCC leak. Now, we have one, it looks like I was wrong.

Might this be the rumoured combined ebook / audiobook device?

Hopefully, it is just an improvement over the KA1 and the Forma.

I suspect it will not be a 7.8"/8" device -- IMNSHO, the Forma is too new to be replaced. I tend to the belief that it will have a 6.8" 300 ppi screen, possibly a Mobius plastic substrate and will replace the H2O edition 2 which was released in May, 2017. I will also predict that it will not have a USB4 interface so no 40Gbps and 100W charging.

OTOH, my track record for such predictions should not encourage anyone to bet more than jellybean money on my prediction.

I REALLY want a Forma now so this wait is killing me but I have to just in case it's something amazing.

Wonder if the Forma will ever drop in price aswell? It's been a year...

Hmm… I still really want an Aura One, and those are getting harder to find. Any chance an Aura One owner wants to conveniently "lose" their device, so they'll be able to justify a new purchase?

I am very pleased with my Kobo Aura One. Is there really any reason to consider moving up to a Forma?

It’s got a bigger screen and buttons.

If those appeal to you then yes. Otherwise no.

And weight. And ergonomics. And does the Aura one have a glass substrate?

It's also a generation more recent, which means it comes with fun new goodies under the hood.
