Could 2023 be the year of the Kindle color after all?

Color ereaders aren’t new, we’ve had quite a few from smaller players in the ereader market, notably Chinese company Onyx and Switzerland-based Ukrainian brand PocketBook. We’ve even tested a few here at TechRadar – such as the Onyx Boox Nova 3 Color and the PocketBook InkPad Color – but we’ve never really enjoyed the display of colors on the screen.

They look very washed out and desaturated – and this is due to the limitations in the display technology that has been used so far. Most of the current color readers use E Ink Kaleido displays, which are capable of displaying 4,096 colors at a resolution of no more than 100 ppi. And the reason the colors look washed out is because of the filters placed on the screen.
