An OLED device with white text on a black background would still deliver impressive battery life while being easy on the eyes because only the pixels used for displaying text consume power.

Moreover, it might even be cheaper to do OLED than e-ink. A lot of niche e-ink based devices like the remarkable tablet are so pricey they never really take off. A mass produced, readily available technology like OLED could possibly save money over e-ink and bring down the price of the minimalist phone.
