[LEAKED] Cherry Mobile TAIJI: E-ink Screen for eBook Readers

Even with the massive leak on the Cherry Mobile devices, they don’t stop there. Here we are again, fiddling with another leaked device. Named Cherry Mobile Taiji, this name for a local brand phone is very weird name scheme by the company. The device is a unique one, featuring  E-inked display at its back, primary used on eBook reading without sacrificing precious battery life and also more healthy for the eyes.

Taiji is a Chinese cosmological term for the “Supreme Ultimate” state of undifferentiated absolute and infinite potential, the oneness before duality, from which Yin and Yang originate, contrasted with the Wuji (無極, “Without Ultimate”).


Based from our own guess and fun fact from Wikipedia, the chosen name, “Taiji”, might be because of the unique E-ink screen back display that features black & white colors that also corresponds to Yin & Yang.

The specifications listed here are based only on the leaked brochure & photo. Final specs and design might change for the final product. Stay tuned as we update the article for the official announcement. Feel free to comment for any errors or insufficient information. Thank you..
