Hisense A2: Dual-Screen Phone With AMOLED And E-Ink Displays

This is not the first device to do this, but an e-ink display seems like a pretty smart way to conserve battery life when you realize it is suitable for a lot of content you would normally be perusing on your mobile.

The TENAA filing describes the phone as a handset with a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel AMOLED display on one side and a 5.2 inch, 960 x 540 pixel E Ink screen on the other. Advantages of the E Ink screen include sunlight visibility, low power consumption, and the ability to display a static image without using any power آ— so you can load up a shopping list, directions, boarding pass, or other notes and it’ll stay on the screen indefinitely even if your battery dies. You could also use that screen to read eBooks or other documents. The phone’s other features include a 1.4 GHz octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a microSD card reader, a 3,000 mAh battery, a 16MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, and Android 6.0 software.
