This smartphone has front side 4.3-inch capcitive LCD screen and backside 4.3-inch electronic paper screen.The electronic paper display in the backside is always on, but in a less disturbing and more user-friendly way. You can easily see notices, emails, tweets, and other information in real time without picking up or even activating your phone.

Electronic paper screen gives you a longer lasting, more comfortable reading experience even in bright sunshine. You get the perfect smartphone and e-reader in one device instead of two.When you flip the phone, footnotes on the page you are reading will automatically appear on the LCD.
