The Prime features a six inch capacitive touchscreen display with E Ink Carta with a resolution of 1448 x 1072 pixels and 300 dpi. The screen is flush with the bezel, which makes it easier to tap and gesture on the screen. It also helps contain the LED lights for the front-lit display and ensures that there will be no light spillage. There is a all new color temperature system in the Prime, it has blue and white lights, instead of candlelight orange, which all e-readers were using in 2017 and most of 2018.
