UNISOC, a China-based supplier of mobile communications chipsets and IoT chipsets, today announced the implementation of screen refresh rate technology of up to 85Hz on e-ink screens with FHD+ resolution.
Tech enthusiasts should be no stranger to e-ink display devices, the Kindle is a representative product of the ebook, using an eye-friendly e-ink display.
The e-ink display device achieves eye protection in a way that is different from the iPad, mobile phone on eye protection mode, it is non-illuminated, 0 blue light, let you read through diffuse reflection of ambient light. The other LCD, OLED can not achieve the real shielding blue light, very realistic simulation of the paper reading experience, so as to achieve a really good eye protection effect.
The surface of the e-ink display is covered with many of these "microcapsules", which contain negatively charged black particles and positively charged white particles, the yellow part in the middle being transparent oil. The screen component causes particles of different colors to move by changing their charge, resulting in a black and white visualization.
Users currently buy e-ink display products, the general screen refresh rate is very low, the experience becomes poor while watching video, browsing the web.
When the content is displayed, the screen will have a lagging effect, resulting in residual and heavy shadows on the screen.
Products such as the Kindle have a full-screen black-and-white flicker for screen reset, which improves the display.
Although the e-ink display is extremely power-efficient and very eye-friendly, it still falls short of the standard required for all daily use.
According to UNISOC, e-ink display devices require more computing power than LCD and OLED display devices.
Due to its unique display principle, it relies more on CPU arithmetic power for ion migration of eink display.
UNISOC has optimized its algorithm for the refresh mode of the e-ink display to achieve a refresh rate of 85Hz at FHD+ resolution.
The company also revealed that the first high refresh rate e-ink display phones will be officially launched in June.
