Monocolor Front Light Is Eye-friendly

Because amber/warm/yellow light will reduce color saturation on the color E Ink screen, all color E Ink devices adopt white/cold front lights. 

Some users believe that the cold front light with a blue tint can hurt eyes.

However, it’s not the way front lights work.

Front lights can increase content contrast to make texts more recognizable. Although Nova3 Color only gets white/cold front lights, they are different from the blue light emitted by LED/LCD screens. The front light is more eye-friendly than LED/LCD backlights because they don’t shoot into users’ eyes directly. 

Moreover, BOOX Nova2, one of our models tested for blue light performance, has been verified to have photobiological safety lightsNova3 Color has the same size as Nova2 and adopts the same working principle of E Ink screen. It applies a color filter on the top which rarely affects the blue light performance.
