New display tech?

Saw this article. Looks interesting, and they compare it to eInk...

...it'll be interesting to see how it really compares.

Thanks for the link. Looks interesting. Reflective light won't work too well in a dark room but still it's an interesting product.

More about it here...

Looking at the image, it looks suspiciously like a reflective LCD display. I.e., it's going to need to be continually refreshed which is going to need more power than an eInk bi-stable display.

@tourneur

When you use a Youtube video, you just need the last part of the URL. For your post, you used [YOUTUBE] [url]https://youtu.be/Tv_NksPKnuw[/url][/YOUTUBE] where [YOUTUBE]Tv_NksPKnuw[/YOUTUBE] was needed.

I think (if I understand the articles correctly) that this is LCD technology without a backlight but with a highly reflective surface. It's supposedly 65% more power efficient, which means to me that, if you charged your current LCD tablet once a day, you should be able to charge this device once every two or three days instead. Definitely not comparable to E-Ink in this regard.

Which is 12+ year old technology. The Nokia E65 was full colour backlit and almost monochrome, perfectly readable in bright sunlight.

Good news.
TCL Debuts the Company's NXTPAPER Display Technology Along With TCL 10 TABMAX and TCL 10 TABMID Tablets at IFA 2020.
On the other hand, the "perfect" reflective display doesn't exist. Then, there are 3 options: eInk 6"colour display, this new 10" TCL display or the vaporware Clearink. Nothing else.

NOTE: The news is wrong, the display of these tablets are the typical IPS LCD and not the NXT Paper. You are advised.

According to the T3N article (German), the battery life is supposed to be about a week, which is okay to me. I have to recharge my smartwatch more often.
It really depends on how well the display is readable.

Yes.

It dates back to the PDA era and the last century:

Those used to be low res displays so the tech is ripe for updating (say with microLED frontlights) but there's nothing magical there.
