Philips handset with "Anti-Blue" display is certified by TENAA

Philips handset with
Late last month, Philips introduced two new Android handsets with "Anti-Blue" displays. Using a technology called SoftBlue, the phones produce up to 86% less blue light from their displays, than an average smartphone. This results in less strain and fatigue on a smartphone user's eyes. The two Anti-Blue models unveiled last month from Philips were the Philips Sapphire S616 and the Philips Sapphire Life V787.

While the Philips Sapphire S616 is already available in China, priced at the equivalent of $220 USD, the Philips V787 has just been certified by Chinese regulator TENAA. This model features a 5-inch "Anti-Blue" screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 441ppi. An unnamed MediaTek SoC is under the hood, carrying a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU. 1GB of RAM is inside, along with 8GB of native storage. Those seeking additional memory can access the 32GB capacity microSD slot

The 13MP rear-facing camera uses Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) for quick focusing, and there is a 5MP camera in front for selfies and video chats. Philips own Xenium technology is used with the 5000mAh battery (yup, you read that correctly) which provides 47 hours of talk time. Android 5.1 is pre-installed.

Now that the Philips Sapphire Life V787 has been certified by TENAA, we should see it launched shortly. As usual, TENAA has its usual gallery of photographs that you can look at by clicking on the slideshow below.

Thanks for the tip!

Never thought of "less blue light" as a selling point. Gotta tip my cap to those Philips marketing boys and girls!

Very nice indeed. Too bad this isn't on a more popular phone like a Samsung or Apple device :/

True, but if Samsung made it, the comment section will be flooded with "another gimmick from sammy"

This is great .. I dont know why Apple or Sammy do not have such a feature in their devices!

Apple and Sammy can stretch out the time it takes them to give us new features that are already out because people will keep buying their great phones (seriously) without them. Other OEMs on the other hand, actually need selling points on why you should switch to their phone from their competitors.

Mixing some awesome features with lower midrange specs is a interesting idea
