I think this phone will be the best option for me, I just wish it wasn't so big.

If it becomes available at that price, I will definitely get one.

Am very happy with my Hisense A2 Pro, but would much prefer a single screen eink phone with a frontlight. Am hoping that this becomes a reality.

The €100 price and launch date before end of 2019 is from the person on the stand who didn't even know how big the battery was. I'm not convinced he's a reliable source.

Here's a different video, in German, that says that the price is not known.

Another non-English site: http://www.hani.co.kr/arti/economy/marketing/908864.html

Google translate of the important bit:
Like Hisense's predecessor, A5 is expected to be found only in some regions, including China and Russia. Xuan Chun Ray's high-sense section manager met with Hankyoreh on the 7th (local time) and said it will be priced at $ 100 and will be released to China and Russia later this year. "I plan to go to Europe next year," he said. "I have no plans yet."

I'm looking forward to this. Is Google Play confirmed?

It does look like a very interesting device. For a start, it's a smart phone that will definitely last through a whole day, possibly only need recharging every other day.

This is exactly what I want. For a fair price, I will definitely buy it. Also, it has to have Google play.
