In December 2020, HiSense, the company known for making TVs, announced the A7 5G smartphone as the world’s first smartphone featuring an e-ink display with 5G connectivity support, and just a few days ago, the company started taking pre-orders for the A7 CC — a variant which features a color screen.
Now, the HiSense A7 5G is officially available for purchase in the Chinese market, for a price of 2,399 yuan which roughly converts to $371. The phone is similar to the A7 5G except that it comes with a color e-ink screen instead of a monochrome panel.
Other features include a 3.5mm headphone jack with AK4377AECB audio DAC for Hi-Res Audio, single front and rear cameras, fingerprint sensor, an additional programmable key on the left side, super-linear speaker, different lock screens, several tweaks related to the E-ink display, and a refined UI based on Android 10.
There’s a single rear-facing camera with an LED flash on the back. It also comes with a front-facing camera with support for AI face unlock. The device is backed by a 4,770mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging.
