Oaxis InkCase with 5.2″ E Ink Screen for iPhone 7 Plus

Oaxis InkCase i7 Plus

Oaxis has launched a new crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for a new InkCase that fits the iPhone 7 Plus.

Oaxis sells a number of different products, including several smartphone cases with E Ink screens built into the back.

Their latest new InkCase for the iPhone 7 Plus features a sizeable 5.2-inch E Ink screen.

It uses Carta technology and it has a resolution of 540 x 960 (that’s 217 ppi).

A 5.2-inch E Ink screen sounds pretty large but it’s still quite a bit smaller than a 6-inch Kindle because the screen ratio makes it seem a lot narrower.

The case has Bluetooth to connect to the iPhone through an app. The case is also waterproof and shock resistant. Battery life is estimated at up to 5 days with the built-in battery for the E Ink screen.

The InkCase i7 Plus is expected to start shipping in July. Pledges start at $123 plus shipping on Kickstarter.

The $69 pledge for the InkCase IVY for iPhone 7 makes no sense. First off, shipping costs extra and the delivery estimate isn’t until August. Second, they’re selling them right now on Amazon for $49 with free shipping.

The InkCase IVY has tiny E Ink screen though so it wouldn’t be useful for reading.

The video below is a review of the InkCase i7 for the regular iPhone 7, not the Plus version, but it’ll give you the gist of how it works.
