Hisense has just released the Hisense Touch Lite, which is a dedicated music player and book reader. It’s a bit different from the Hisense Touch HIFi music player released a few months ago. The main differences are the RAM is less and same with the internal storage. Still, if you want a solid music player that can play all major formats and has a 3.5mm headphone jack, this is good value for money. You can order it for $299 from the Good e-Reader store.

The Hisense Touch features a 5.84 E INK Carta HD capacitive touchscreen display with a 1440 x 720 solution resolution with 287 PPI. It has a front-lit screen and a color temperature system, so you can not only listen to music, but also read e-books. Under the hood is a Qualcomm quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There is a USB-C port for charging the device and WIFI for accessing the internet and downloading apps. This device supports Bluetooth 5.1, so you can plug in a pair of headphones, but HIFI audio cannot be output via Bluetooth, as it uses different codecs. It is powered by a 3000mAh battery and weighs 155g.

It has a high, aluminum build quality and supports 32-bit/384kHz audio. Audio is played through the two AAC 1216 stereo speakers or the 3.5mm headphone jack at up to 122dB. It also has Dirac powered sound. The device runs an operating system called Touch OS based on Google Android 11.

If you’ve seen any of our reviews of the Hisense line of smartphones, this one uses a similar layout. So you can launch different speed modes to boost the performance of the E INK display. This is useful if you decide to install certain apps that have animations, such as page changes. One of the most exciting things about the music player is that it’s running Android 11, the first time we’ve seen a modern operating system on an E INK device. Hisense generally supports a myriad of languages, including English.

Hisense is literally the only brand in the world that takes HIFI music seriously on an E INK display. Unlike the new Sony Walkman that costs over $3500 or more, you get over a month’s battery life, while still listening to all your tunes.
