The Light Phone 2

We wrote about the original Light Phone several years ago. It was created by Joe Hollier and Kaiwei Tang, an artist and product designer who met inside of a NYC-based Google incubator in 2014. This latest iteration continues along the same minimal theme, but has been modified for the way we use phones today. The essentials remain: the 4G LTE phone now has a high-resolution, matte e-ink touchscreen that is only visible when it's in use, a larger microphone and  speaker, clean, a custom operating system that allows phone calls, contact lists, messaging, clock and alarm. It is still fairly paired down; it doesn't include any 'unnecessary' apps, music or tools, but features such as a proximity sensor and the up and down buttons will improve functionality.

The Light Phone is available in white or black and will begin shipping by April 2019.
