Add a second screen on the back of iPhone 6 with this popSlate case, and save on battery
The inventive case makers from popSlate have issued an iPhone 6 edition of their second-screen wrapper for Apple's newest phone version now. The premise is to have a monochrome display on the back, which mirrors your main screen, and can show pictures there for fun, or be used as a battery-saving mechanism to read notifications and stuff, or take videos using the black&white ePaper panel as a viewfinder.

The popSlate iPhone 6 case retails for $130, which is, granted, on the high side for a case, but how many give you a second mirrored juice-saving screen on the back? You can quickly preview your boarding pass and prep it for airport scanning, read and reply to messages, or simply shuffle movie posters you like on the back of your handset for the world to see. Any takers?

I hope they do, but they probably wont. This is a case. It's not a phone.

Hmm saving power by letting the wifi on 24/7. Great idea.

Wifi is a big battery drainer... but your main screen is even bigger at doing that. I think this is a great idea, but I wonder how fluidly will this work given that ePaper are usually sluggish, have ghosting effects, and response time are not the best...

It looks pretty cool, I bet people can sell their phone now as advertising space. Too bad they don't make them for phones other than the iphone

Interesting, useful if it has a touchscreen input. Somewhat bulky, does it have an extended battery inside.

FYI: This product is vaporware, and Phone Arena is basically helping PopSlate perpetrate a fraud.
