Under the hood is a 1.8GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. There is a USB-C port for charging and transferring books in EPUB, PDF, MOBI TXT. It has WIFI 4.2 and a 5 megapixel camera for taking photos of documents and is imported into the Notes app. It’s powered by a 2300mAh battery and runs Google Android 11.

The AINOTE Air Pro looks good on paper, but there is no English support. It’s in Chinese only and to unlock most features, you’ll need a Mainland Chinese phone number for a verification code. This might be a dud for most of the world, but if you live and work in China, it’s one of the best note-taking products from a company that’s been making e-notes and e-readers for a decade.
