The E Ink Android smartphone offers all the functions of a regular smartphone, with 4 weeks of battery life (1 week for normal usage) and weighs 80gm.
Because E Ink screens don’t use any power when not actively changing displays, the phones would last as long as 4 weeks when on standby.
Like most e-readers, the interface is a little slow and not as lag-free, and the display has a lower resolution—unlike regular smartphones; but it does offer a better viewing experience under direct, strong sunlight.
The cameraless phone was developed by Taiwanese company E Ink that is currently working together with other companies to bring full-fledged E-Ink smartphones to the market.
The E Ink Android Smartphone is expected to cost €150 (US$200).
