Announcement of Hisense A9: Microfiber Hi-Fi

Written By O. Love

Hisense has unveiled a new generation of its A-series smartphone readers: the Hisense A9. As before, the main feature of the device is the screen made using E-Ink technology. Such panels are used in e-book readers, it could also be seen on the rear panel of the YotaPhone, but only Hisense completely abandoned traditional LCD / LED screens and began to produce E-Ink smartphones.

The diagonal is 6.1 “; the resolution is not specified, but the pixel density is indicated: exactly 300 ppi. Hisense is especially proud of HyperWave technology, which made it possible to speed up the screen refresh rate: in full cleaning mode, it almost reached 3 Hz, and in the most operating modes – 10 Hz.

But Hisense A9 chips are not limited to the screen. First, Hisense remains the only manufacturer that continues to install ESS Saber Hi-Fi DACs (ES9318 in this case) in their smartphones. Secondly, the company has worked on the design of the smartphone, choosing a very unexpected material for its body: microfiber.

The proprietary software is also noted – although the smartphone runs on Android and supports absolutely any launchers, the screen requires a very peculiar shell, and Hisense developed it. Other specifications and prices are shown in the table below. The smartphone has already gone on sale in China, but it is unlikely that it will ever appear outside of it.
