About a year after the launch of the Hisense Touch portable music player with Android-based software, an E ink display and support for 32-bit/384kHz HiFi audio, Hisense has unveiled a new model called the Hisense Touch Lite.

At first glance, the new model looks a lot like the original, but it cuts a few corners in order to bring the price down…a bit. While the Hisense Touch sells for around $330 and up, the Hisense Touch Lite starts at around $299.

The Hisense Touch Lite features a 5.84-inch grayscale E Ink display with front illumination that supports adjustable color temperature and it comes with Android 11 software and Hisense Touch OS , which is an Android user interface optimized for ePaper screens.

Like the original Hisense Touch, this model features a Qualcomm octa-core 1.8 Ghz processor, 4 GB of RAM, 3000 mAh battery, USB 3.1 port, high- stereo speakers, a headphone jack and an aluminum body.

What makes it different is that while the Hisense Touch has 128GB of storage, the Touch Lite only has 64GB. has no front camera and, perhaps more importantly, seems to lack HiFi audio capabilities.

On the one hand, it could make this model extremely less appealing for audio files. On the other hand, not everyone can really tell the difference between high fidelity sound and standard quality sound, so if you score average on an audio quality hearing test, you might save $30. approximately on the cheapest model.

The E Ink display should still fulfill its fundamental purpose of giving you a sunlight-viewable display with low power consumption for a device primarily intended for audio playback, e-book reading, or running other applications that do not require a color screen with a high refresh rate.

Note that although the Hisense Touch and Hisense Touch Lite come with Android, they are designed for the Chinese market and do not come with the Google Play Store installed. If you want to run apps that are not pre-installed, you can either sideload them or install another app store like Aurora Store.
