Qualcomm puts power-saving display into smartphones

20 Apr 2009

Qualcomm MEMS Technologies and Inventec unveiled the first smartphone to feature Qualcomm\'s mirasol display, the Inventec V112, during the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2009.

The Inventec V112 Smartphone features a 1.1" bichrome mirasol display as a secondary screen below the main display. By incorporating Qualcomm\'s mirasol display, the V112 saves power by redirecting display content from the primary display to the low-power mirasol display. Based on reflective technology, the display is designed for low power consumption and high reflectivity, offering consumers extended battery life and superior outdoor visibility.

The V112 includes a touchscreen covering the mirasol display, which enables users to navigate on the main display, including the management of standard call features and the system\'s MP3 player. The mirasol secondary display will feature information like the time, incoming calls, missed calls, email and SMS alerts, MP3 song titles and track ID information.

Based on Qualcomm\'s Mobile Station Modem (MSM) MSM7201A chipset, the V112 is a Windows phone and has GPS, MP3, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, as well as a 3-megapixel camera and messaging support.

"Announcing the compelling design of the Inventec V112 Smartphone featuring a mirasol display is another step forward for Qualcomm MEMS Technologies in expanding our reach into new markets," said Jim Cathey, vice president of business development for Qualcomm MEMS Technologies.
