Photovoltaic film behind display charges Tag Heuer Meridiist Infinite using light

Tag Heuer has unveiled an updated version of its Meridiist luxury mobile phone, featuring what it calls a the "world's first perpetual power reserve." By using the Wysisps transparent photovoltaic film from Sunpartner behind the display, the Meridiist Infinite effectively turns the screen into a solar panel, allowing it to charge without needing to be connected to an external power source.

Constructed from grade 5 Titanium and carbon, Pocket-Lint reports the Meridiist Infinite has a 2.4-inch full color TFT display with a resolution of 320x240, with a secondary monochrome OLED panel at the top of the device for notifications. While a number of specifications have not been revealed, such as the processor, it will apparently have a 5-megapixel rear camera, 8GB of storage, and dual SIM slots.



Tag Heuer will be limiting shipments to 1,911 units of the Meridiist Infinite, and will be releasing the device this July. While a price remains unknown, the earlier Racer and Link devices sold for around $3,700 and $6,700 respectively at launch, with the Meridiist Infinite likely to be in a similar and expensive price range.
