Philips Launches Two New Smartphones with Anti-Blue Displays. Have you for once look intently at your Smartphone screen and feel your eyes get fatigued or strained? This should be blamed on the blue light that is released by the display. Nevertheless, Philips has launched two new smartphones with Anti-Blue displays in China recently. The two Smartphones are using a new technology that the producer refers to as SoftBlue.
It is an anti-blue display that lessens the amount of blue light that emanates from the screen of a Smartphone, by about 86 percent. You can only find this special feature on the just newly launched Philips Sapphire S616 as well as the Philips Sapphire Life V787.
The Sapphire S616 boasts a 5.5-inch IPS screen that carries a 1080 x 1920 resolution. It is the MediaTek MT6753 SoC that is driving the handset, which entails the Mali-T720 GPU, and an octa-core CPU. There is also 2GB of RAM inside, in addition to 16GB of internal storage. All those who need further or extra memory can access the 128GB microSD slot.
This new device also features a 13MP camera with f/2.0 aperture, even as a 5MP façade-facing camera is used for video chats and snaps selfies at wide range. The Smartphone also comes with a detachable 3000mAh battery, and offers double SIM, double standby with support for 4G LTE connectivity.
At the end of November, the Philips Sapphire Life V787 is likely to be unveiled, despite the fact that pricing information is unheard of. Except for a few significant changes, this device has similar specs as the Sapphire S616. For instance, a 5000mAh battery that makes use of the Xenium technology of the manufacturer to give up to 47 hours of talk time is used for powering this model.
Moreover, the Sapphire Life V787 comes with a smaller 5-inch screen that equally has a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That results in a higher 441ppi pixel density.
Last but not least, the 13MP shooter facing the rear on this unit provides PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus that let it focus in just 0.2 seconds.
However, we never anticipate seeing these two handsets made available in the United States, where Philips brand is allied with audio equipment and light bulbs.
