If you think only E Ink display technology is best for your eyes, then the new Eyemoo NXT Epaper S1 tablet might force you to rethink your options. At least, Eyemoo Tech would like us to believe it to be so. The company said its NXT Epaper S1 tablet is based on RLCD screen technology which it claimed will allow for superior levels of eye protection while covering several of the shortcomings of traditional E Ink displays.
Elaborating further, the company said using a full reflective screen display ensures the NXT Epaper S1 tablet emits the least harmful blue light. It also comes with a front light feature and is the only reflective LCD tablet currently available to be so equipped. The front light ensures the most pleasing reading experience, even in dimly lit conditions. This way, the tablet won’t cause eye fatigue even if viewed for long durations.
Another inherent positive of the RLCD display tech is its high refresh rate compared to E Ink displays. At 60 Hz, the refresh rate is high enough for smooth video playback and a decent gaming experience. This is quite unlike E Ink displays which are best for static displays but stutters heavily when showing fast-moving images, such as during video playback or gaming. As such, while devices like e-readers or e-notes can be great for viewing static images, things could be better when watching videos or gaming.
Yet another positive of the Reflective LCD is its ability to show things in full colour. Something that needs to be fixed with e-paper displays. While recent advances such as the advent of the Kaleido 3 or the latest Gallery 3 colour e-paper displays has made things a lot more colourful than ever before, it still is way off what RLCD is capable of.
Coming to the rest of the specifications, the tablet comes powered by an octa-core processor that works in tandem with six gigs of memory and 128 gigs of storage. Keeping the lights on is a 6000 mAh battery. The tablet runs Android 12 though it has yet to be discovered if there will be an option to download Android 13 later.
“We are excited to introduce the Eyemoo NXT Epaper S1 to the market, and we believe it will be a game-changer for anyone who values their vision and wants a nice office tablet,” said a spokesperson for Eyemoo. “With its advanced display technology and natural reading experience, we are confident that the Eyemoo NXT Epaper S1 will be a popular choice among users looking for a versatile tablet that also prioritizes their vision protection.”
As for its price, the Eyemoo NXT Epaper S1 starts at $499. The tablet is going to be available via Kickstarter from March 2023.
