HiSense A7 5G: this is the first 5G mobile with an electronic ink screen

HiSense is a brand that in Europe we know mostly for its televisions , but in China, its home market, the company also launches smartphones . What’s more, Hisense has a range, A, which is composed solely and exclusively of devices with electronic ink displays . This is the one that interests us today, since a new and peculiar member has just been incorporated: the HiSense A7 5G .

Following in the wake of the rest of the A series terminals, the HiSense A7 5G mounts an electronic ink screen, which is curious in itself, although the most striking thing is that a mobile of this type, which surely is not used too much for watch streaming content or play games, be compatible with 5G networks . In any case, it’s official, so let’s get to know it better.

5G and e-ink

The HiSense A7 5G is a fairly simple and unpretentious device. At the back we find the fingerprint reader and a small photographic module where we see the (only) camera and the LED flash. It also has a headphone jack , something you don’t see much of today. The device is available in black and white. Be that as it may, let’s talk about your screen.

HiSense claims that the front has an “ultra-narrow edge” of 3.36 millimeters, making it the “narrowest edge of the electronic ink display products in the industry today.” This has a size of 6.7 inches , something designed for users looking for a mobile to read. More screen equals more content before turning the page, after all.

It is a monochrome screen, unfortunately, but its resolution is 300 pixels per inch . Of course, it is backlit. It has several refresh rate options, namely 688 ms, 364 ms, 174 ms and 136 ms, figures too high to play for example, but more than enough to read in e-book. In fact, the software has been adjusted to improve the contrast of the letters . As is obvious, it is a smartphone very designed to read.Volume 90% 

And what is inside? Well, we have 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage along with a UNISOC Tiger T7510 5G processor . It is compatible with 5G NSA and SA networks and supports seamless switching between 4G and 5G. It also mounts an AK4377AECB DAC that supports Hi-Res Audio. All this is powered by a 4,770 mAh battery with 18W fast charging and Android 10.

HiSense A7 5G versions and price

Like almost all HiSense phones, the HiSense A7 5G stays in China and is not expected to leave its home market. It will be available in black and white and its price is 1,999 yuan , which is around 250 euros to change .
