Hisense A7CC – 5G Smartphone with a 6.7-Inch Color E-Ink Display, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage
Following the recent introduction of color E-Ink displays and color eReaders from several companies, Hisense, a well-known TV manufacturer has launched and is currently taking pre-orders for their Hisense A7CC 5G smartphone exclusively equipped with a 6.7-inch color E-Ink display. The Chinese company had earlier (sometime in December last year) launched Hisense A7 5G – the world’s first E-ink display smartphone with 5G connectivity – and now, just after a few months, they are back with the color screen version of the Hisense A7 5G.
The new Hisense A7CC is powered by UNISOC T7510 octa-core processor with support for 5G modem, and comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. It is everything the same with the Hisense A7 5G, the only difference is that it comes with a colored E-ink display instead of a monochrome panel. So, you can already guess that it will cost more than the Hisense A7 5G (Hisense A7 5G sells for $309 while the Hisense A7 CC is priced at $371).
The Hisense A7 CC also boasts of the same 6.7-inch E-ink display that the A7 5G has, but with an RGB pixel arrangement. In addition to that, Pixels per inch (PPI) is now 100, instead of 300.

Since the 6.7-inch color E-Ink smartphone has a refined UI based on Android 10, we expect that the phone should be able to give a cool feeling while reading e-Books and browsing the internet with clearer text. Another aspect of a very good phone is the battery life. We don’t have any information on that yet, but we guess that a single full charge should take one for like a week thereabout, depending on how it is used.
