Hisense A2 Officially Launches with 5.2″ E-ink and 5.5″ AMOLED Displays

The dual-screen A2 smartphone from Hisense first showed up on a regulator’s website last December, and now it has reached the Chinese market (theoretically).

GizChina reports that Hisense launched the A2 in China this week.

The phone sports a 3Ah battery and runs Android on a rather underpowered Snapdragon 430 CPU.

I haven’t found any user reports yet, but there are a number of hands-on videos from CES 2017 and I embedded one at the end of the post.

I also have not found the price or where you can buy it.

So what do you think of the phone?

    Linked article says, “The device offers impressive battery performance (after all it has E-Ink display)” which I guess is wrong. The B/W image looks like e-ink, but its still LCD. Still, I’d like to see this screen in action.
