e-Paper displays offer exciting features, such as great image quality, low power consumption (bi-stability), sunlight visibility and more. Here's our new short video that introduces e-paper display technology and the current market status:
This nice video from our friend Charbax shows a couple of interesting Hisense smartphones. The first is a A5, with its 5.8" HD+ display and low $100 price tag, and the second is the A6 which sports two displays - a 6.1" 2160×1080 AMOLED display on the front and a 5.6" touch E Ink Carta HD screen on the back.
The Kobo Libra H20 is a high-end waterproof e-reader that features a 7" 1680x1264 (300 PPI) E Ink Carta Display, 8 GB of storage and adjustable color temperature front lighting.
The Kobo Libra H20 will launch by the end of 2019 for $169.99.
E Ink Holdings (EIH) says that it plans to expand its Advanced Color ePaper (ACeP) e-paper production to more sizes and start offering such displays to e-readers in 2020. The company also hopes to find customers in fields such as retailing, smart traffic, logistics, medical care and education.
E Ink Holdings announced that it developed e-paper displays driven by OTFT backplanes - aimed for wearable and smart clothing applications. EIH is developing the OFTF backplanes in collaboration with AU Optronics.
EIH says that OTFT can reduce production costs as it can be produced at low temperatures and perhaps even using printing technologies. OTFT can also enable highly flexible displays. EIH will demonstrate OTFT EPD displays late this week at Touch Taiwan 2019.
