Thanks to Rid for discovering this and posting it. Now up on the U.S. Kobo site (and probably all over the world).

Rid's thread... https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=342141

Kobo Sage and Libra 2.

https://us.kobobooks.com/collections/eReaders?utm_source=Kobo&utm_medium=TopNav&utm_cam paign=eReaders_Collection

Looks like they'll be available on October 19th, about a week sooner than the new Kindle Paperwhites.

Some of the changes I noticed so far:

- Carta 1200 Display (faster, better contrast)
- 32 GB storage
- Bluetooth
- Audiobook support
- USB-C
- Increased weight (Libra 2: 215g instead of 192g, Sage: 241g instead of 197g)
- Official Dark Mode for the Libra
- Stylus support for the Sage

How did they get heavier? I was hopping for thinner.

I was also hoping for a ~7" without the large side hand hold.

No thinner screen part anymore. Now the thickness is uniform.

I'm not interested for this very reason.

Maybe bluetooth, but more likely a slight bump in the battery to accommodate bluetooth.

The Sage got heavier because of the Carta 1200 screen being glass and plastic.

I wonder why they abandoned the Mobius screen? Too expensive?

Not as much contrast and not as fast.

Now this I'm interested in. A relatively faster processor, bluetooth, usb-c.

While I wont' be getting either of them at launch, I'll be saving up so that I can get one of them by Christmas next year. Which one will depend on reviews.
