Question regarding mnt reform, again, but different!

In these two pictures below it appears the developer of MNT Reform is developing a pocket version of the MNT Reform

I ask this, because I am curious if the MNT Reform Pocket Version will be faster then the original and of course how much faster it will be... wink

He probably doesn't have time to answer at the moment due to the work load, so I don't know if I will get a response from him for a while thus I ask here:


My question, is, do bigger screen sizes use more cpu processing, and if so, by how much?

I also wondered if Devuan will have support for this device, although it probably depends on Debian supporting it right?

I probably would use this for two things: Focuswriter, and opus files. for the most part...

Whether it is imx8m I will choose or LS1028A, I have no idea at this point. wink

hello zapper,
yes bigger screens in number of pixels, use more processing power, but that nowadays has very little to do with screen physical size..
A mobile phone nowadays have bigger screens than some laptop displays..

because screens are measured in pixels smile
the more you have, the more processing power is needed, but how much is relative, it will depend on so many factors..

Nowadays SoCs already incorporate a lot of hardware to deal with lots of stuff, but that will mean that the driver will have to support that ideally well..
I didn't knew a ultra mobile platform was in the works.. smile
its a nice concept..

In relation to support,
If Debian manage to get support for it, that would mean its a lot easier for Devuan..
If not, Devuan can support it,
but for that, Devuan would have to gain access to the device, so that developers can work..

The level of support is not certain, because its unknown how much that project will progress.. smile

I hope all ends well smile
The ultra mobile device seems very nice smile


Best Regards,
tux

I agree, I hope it works out too.  I will probably use it for two things, focuswriter, and playing audio files. smile

That being said, you seem to be saying that a bigger screen does use more electricity then a smaller one. I had figured that was true, I wonder how much more it uses... wink

If costs even 600$ I would want it, if it costs less, like 500$ or 400$ for sure i will want it. smile

In general I probably will want it, but yeah, I hope for its size its half the price of the other one at most.

On a more related note though, the other measurement is the battery on the device.  I hope to get at least 12+ hours of battery life given the size and more. wink
