At today’s CES 2020 show, Hisense launched a smartphone with a color ink screen, the world’s first smartphone product using a color ink bottle, announcing the ink screen phone from the black-and-white printing era to the era of color printing. However, color ink screens will have to wait until the second quarter of this year for mass production, and related products will have to wait until the third quarter of this year.
Hisense showed the new ink screen phone, the overall appearance is similar to the previously released Hisense A5 reading phone, but the new product uses a bright yellow color scheme. From the pictures displayed by Hisense, the color ink screen mobile phone can really display the color content, the actual display effect and printing on paper effect is similar, compared to the black and white ink screen display effect is indeed more vivid. But you don’t have to expect the phone’s display to be as good as it would be for a normal phone.
In addition to supporting color content display, color ink screens improve screen refresh rates, but the effect of specific improvements will have to wait until the product is available before it can be verified. However, it is clear that this product should be aimed at a specific group of consumers who like electronic reading, just like some of the paper book products on the market today.
Hisense did not release more detailed information, or even the configuration, about the new ink screen phone on display at CES 2020. However, as a manufacturer that is still producing electronic ink screen handsets, Hisense should be the first manufacturer to ship color ink screen phones in the third quarter.
